FordService Hey folks,

Just a reminder: If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and you haven't already done so, please PM me your VIN, mileage estimate, preferred servicing dealer, and a daytime phone number. I'll get each of you escalated to your regional Customer Service Manager; they'll get in touch with your dealers and work on a solution.

Have a great weekend!

hel112570 Mine does the same thing it's definitely noticeable on a cold start and takeoff. It does it about the exact same spot every morning.

Other issues:

I've also noticed the absurd amount of rev hang it has in between shifts. The rpms will stay high for about 2-3 seconds, this is especially bad when I have the throttle opened up.

Another thing I have noticed is a knocking coming from the left side of the car near the bottom of engine. When I engage the clutch it goes away and when I let it out it comes right back. It's easily reproduced.

Last thing, if tapping the throttle in between 2-3k rpm i.e. give it enough gas at idle to make reach 3k and then let off and when it hits 2k give a quick burst, it sounds like a diesel tractor. Funny enough my motorcycle also did the same thing before the engine went. If I watch the tachometer I can see it jitter when the idles drop back down after giving it the burst of throttle. It doesn't jitter more than 2 or 3 hundred rpms, but it most definitely there. I've only got 11K on the car.

Any thoughts?

DAC17 I have a 10/11 build 5-speed, and no similar problem here. I do regularly use 91 octane E10. Maybe that helps, maybe not.

I'm semi-concerned that you experience this even after the car is warmed up. I sort of doubt it's anything but it if this worsens you may have something else going on. Mine only does it with a cold drivetrain, and it's definitely worse in cold ambient temps.
This. I do 26 miles each way to work. Really not that much to warm up before I shut off for 12 hours.

12B41 is a FSA (Field Service Action) rather than a TSB.
