Yeah, without a turbo you need to get it breathing before you get grunt of the engine. On my MTX the usual from cruise is to shift down 2.
Resetting the average MPG/MPH gauge will not affect anything. If the car looses battery power, Ie. dead battery, or unhooking the battery for about 5 minutes, then yes it completely resets.Thanks for the response guys, I seems to be an isolated incident. I drive the car to work again on Friday and played with the acceleration, gave some hard acceleration, parcel acceleration mashed it and felt the "click" I was go in to ask about that but you guys have answered it already. Car feels alot better. When I reset the fuel monitor does that reset the driving habit memory as well?
I know this car is not a corvette by any means but when I said lag it literally like I was towing a house.
That sucks we cannot get the hand held for our 6.
By way of a reply: it seems to me that the Skyactiv engines are built somewhat delicately....yes forged steel rods and crank and forged alloy pistons and full counterweighting on the crank - but section sizes are all very slender... Caution warranted re the revs. Oh, also long, long stroke...'Lotsa rod reversal forces. Narrower than previous design big-end bearings... 'Danger, Will Robinson!' (betraying my age here, lol...)I don't think anyone knows where the margins are with regard to maximum safe revs, but I'm quite sure whoever finds out is going to dislike the cost of doing so very much. It's your wallet if you crank it up by that sort of margin and then actually use it.
I got a replay from OV about this topicBe careful with this; the SkyActiv engines use EGR as part of their detonation control; the point of EGR is to reduce peak combustion temperatures (and thus control NOx) and disabling it will definitely throw a MIL, prevent you from passing emissions testing if you live in such an area and with this engine it might have a severe impact on performance as the ECU may need to aggressively pull timing as well.
