I have a 311 mwb 2007 I've done approximatley 56000 mls, its been to the main dealers twice without the problem being rectified. The problem i have is when the van is pulling away between 1st and 3rd gear but only upto about 3 rpm, the van seems to hold back for a split second and the rear wheels spin and make a screeching noise. This is an intermittent fault and i've tried experimenting with the van empty and fully loaded . Im convinced it is a traction problem probably faulty ASR. The dealer has had all their gizmo's plugged in and its not showing any faults or fault codes. Please could anyone suggest what it could be.

thanks karl
