Problem added: Feb 21, 2010 (10 years ago)
when trying to pull away the car will not accelerate. it goes into gear ok but the revs will not pass 1200 for around 100 feet / 8/10 seconds - then it bites & away no problems. i can hear a very faint rattle when i take my foot off the accelerator - any help & advice i'll be graeful off clever folks!
