I have a 2011...

I have a 2011 xc60. From a stop, turning, the RPMs rev but no acceleration until I come off the gas and the transmission kicks in. What am I doing wrong?

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Same as usual, just starting to have oil consumption light issues around the oil change time.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XC60 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet, moved to high milage oil last change. I get it done every 3000. I'm on the road a lot. Bought car with 57,000 miles at carmaxx 1 and 1/2 years ago. now at 111,000 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, just the oil and the acceleration from a stop.

Low oil light has come on a few minutes after starting. It has done this the past few times right before an oil change is due.
