Lurching when up-shifting

1410 Views 3 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Guest
My 2005 V8 Touareg gives a lurch when upshifting, most noticeably between 2nd and 3rd and between 4th and 5th. The car lurches to the right momentarily and then corrects itself. This seems to be getting worse as time goes bye. My dealer is puzzled.

Anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions ?

with saying it lurches to the right assume pulling then under acceleration to one side and seems to correct when the inital torque has gone >I would suspect as the first port of call the tyres should be rotated on the vehicle and possibly the wheel alignment checked with attention to camber castor angle ensure this is carried out with a person who fully understands the use of a proper 4 wheel alignment machice and no disrespect meant but not a kwik fit job . Lux car dealers should be equiped to complete correctly ask for the beissarth printouts on completion

well theres one possible idea hope this is a good starting point if not the cure 8)
hi techy..
when you mention rotate i presume you mean swap front to rear but keep the tyres on the same side?
i,e left rear to left front and right rear to right front?
yep would move F TO R but at first keep the same side
