Question Asked: Fluctuation in RPM's
August 02, 2010, 05:35 PM
This has been an issue that is getting worse. At first the rpm's were dropping where the car would sometimes cut-off. Now the rpm's will raise and lower quite often. The car's engine seems to "rev" all by itself. Especially when the car is shifted from drive to reverse or vice versa or when I am stopping (ie:traffic lights, ect). It's strange, when I go to brake, the rpm's will raise and the engine will "rev" and the car will kind-of "jump forward" like it's being pushed by this invisible "force" before actually coming to a complete stop. The same thing has started to happen when I am driving...Even when I take my foot off of the accelerator my car sometimes feels like it's being magically pushed by some unknown force...then the engine will rev and the rpm will go from like 1 to like 2 or 3 in a split second. I called a friend of mine who is a mechanic for a Volvo dealership and he says it sounds like my torque module is going. Too bad he doesn't specialize in Suzuki's. Any insight to this issue?
