Every now and again but it apears to be in warm weather the car all of a sudden feels like you have applied the brake slightly . When stopped at junctions it only just rolls forward and any incline and it doesnt move and you have to rev a lot for it to move, it then seems to stay in first few gears and doesnt change up resulting in driving with higher revs
If you pull over and turn everything off it all goes back OK again has happened about 5 times now in last 2 months nealry always in a warm time of day. Can happen as you are driving along or when you pull up and start off again- no patten to it. Any help wopuld be great Thanks
