I have a question for other PMC owners. When I start my van up and go in the morning, the van hesitates and surges for the first few seconds. I don't really warm it up. Seems to be more a power transfer issue than engine hesitation.
Is it a technology thing? Fuel? Not really a problem?

Gas or diesel? Mine is gas and just starts and runs.

Hi Bob, Mine will do that too depending on if it is on a sloped road. I think these vans have hill start assist which is why you feel the surging. On top of that, the 9 speed gearing doesn't help either as the computer still thinks about what gear the thing is in when starting out.

Not sure if I've got a related problem or not. Typically on a cold startup and shift into first gear it "lurches" forwards like its got way too much throttle input. it goes away after about 5-10 seconds and then its back to normal.
P.S
I really hate the transmission.
