    Anyone ever done this well i just have and i cant beleive the difference it has made car pulls much better now, very weird.

    Found the guide by accident online heres what to do:-

    1)PUT KEY INTO IGNITION AND TURN TO POSITION JUST BEFORE STARTING (DO NOT START CAR)

    2)PUSH GAS PEDDLE ALL WAY TO FLOOR AND HOLD FOR 3 SECONDS

    3)ONCE YOU GET TO 3 SECONDS TURN KEY ALL THE WAY BACK TO INSERTION POSITION (DO NOT TAKE IT OUT)

    4)NOW RELEASE GAS PEDDLE AND WAIT 2 MINUTES.

    5)REMOVE KEY

    5) NOW PUT KEY BACK IN AND START CAR.

    You should now notice a better response when you press the gas do this once every few weeks.

    No im no mechanic so can someone explain to me how this works mechanically? the car definatly feels abit better than before.

    Let me know if anyone else notices anything

    I think it only works on petrol cars :uhm:

    Ross-tech seem to agree HERE

    Your car must be running on the power of positive thought! ;)
