Hi there, I don't know if anyone can help me, but I'm having a problem with my Seat Arosa 1.4 TDi. Basically, my accelerator doesn't always seem to work when in low gears. At a standstill I can rev the car up and watch the rev counter reduce to as little as 500rpm. So, I go to pull off in 1st gear and the car won't move and I have to keep pumping the accelerator until eventually i get it to work. This problem is especially bad when the car is cold and I have no problem once the car is above, say, 30 mph. It's just had a full service, and I've put loads of Redex through to clean the injectors, I don't let the car get much below a quarter of a tank of diesel. If somebody could offer some advice I'd be most grateful :beerchug:

i would get a diag test done as it may not be fuel related it could be the throttle potentiometer
