Is anyone experiencing foot throttle hesitation on there 6 speed manual? Is it a sensor problem? I have a 2012 sport w/4:56 G-2 gears. Seams to have no low end torque on take off at times I kill it. I've been driving manual shift rigs for 35yrs. Thanks for any help
The 2012 has a throttle by wire. Switching between my JK and a car with a good old fashioned throttle cable I do notice that there is a half second hesitation when I push on the throttle in the JK. But I notice that on every car with a throttle by wire setup.
One day I noticed serious lag on my 6 speed. To the point I was like what the hell is going on here. On that day I could floor it and was acting like I was pushing the gas maybe 1/4-1/2 way. It was under 5000miles and I had been doing a lot (too much in retrospect) short shifting trying to see what the best mpg could be. I figured the computer had started learning I liked to keep it in low RPMs. It's been awhile but it seems like the next day it was back to normal.
Mine also. It's a combination of a way-stiff throttle pedal (which I get, you don't want to fall off a rock and floor the thing by accident) and the butterfly position v/ pedal position. On these electric throttles, the % the butterfly opens is mapped to the pedal position, vehicle speed, rpm, wheel speed etc. It's not linear.
On my previous '10 Mustang off-idle the butterfly was factory set to only open 55% even if floored... until the rpm and wheel speed (front wheel) agreed with the map setting. I had a custom tune fix that.
I thought I saw another thread on here discussing changing the spring or potentiometer or something similar on the pedal to try and fix the "lag". (without getting into the computer mapping). I am going to look at the pedal this weekend. If I come up with anything practical, I'll post it.
