I apologize for the delay as I have been offline the last couple of days.

If you have not had the throttle position sensor checked to see if it is sending a false signal this should be done.If it is sending a signal that you're applying more throttle then you actually are this will cause this fault here and would need to be replaced.This was a common component to fail and causes this issue here.If this was already checked and found o.k. let me know.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

, I have just had a new engine installed in my 2007
I have just had a new engine installed in my 2007 outlander following incorrect servicing by the previous owner (engine overheating due to missing major oil services, leading to oil pump failure etc.). Anyway, upon installation, the mechanics have flushed and filled the transmission with what I believe is the correct spec cvt fluid (Diaquinn FJ4), but they say that the vehicle has minimal power transferance in "first" gear? In other words, if they manually shift up to 2nd the cvt engages fine and power is normal, but when back down to first it seems to have nothing? Any ideas what could have caused this? … read more
