1, so what would make this happen,
2, is there a fix for this,cos i dont want it to happen again (PITA)
3, has there been a recall for this
Mine did it too. 2012. I think it was because I was being impatient, and blipping the throttle to quickly while starting. I have been sure to keep my hand off the throttle when starting since, and have not had a repaeat...
