2012 V6 automatic transmission

I have been noticing that when my engine is cold, when I try to back up, about 50% of the time the car will not move until I give it a little gas. Other times, it will begin to move as soon as it is put into reverse, which is normal by my understanding. The transmission guy at the dealership told me that the first scenario is also normal for 2012 v6 automatics. Does anybody know if this is true?

Re: 2012 V6 automatic transmission

Depends on a lot of factors. Pull at idle in an auto is very small as the torque convertor is trying to bypass the fluid and not make it move. If there is an incline or slight bump, it won't move unless you give it gas. Unless you're having to rev it to 1.5k+ rpms before the car moves, I wouldn't be worried. A little gas? Seems fine.

Pretty common for any automatic with a factory converter. Mine does the same thing when cold. It's all in the fluid not being warmed up. Nothing to worry about.

All the time. You'll notice just giving your car a few seconds to warm will make a difference.

Re: 2012 V6 automatic transmission

I get the same thing sometimes. When I first start up the car, I always let it idol for a good couple minutes then I take off. Even if I do that, sometimes when stopping and going I get a little lag for the first couple take offs.

Yeah, I'd say that's pretty common on any automatic car. I always let my car run a few mins before driving
