Dear Members, Went through a chilling experience today morning .. The day started as usual, with lot of over night rain , started off to office around 0800 hrs. The vehicle went through some water splashing due to heavy rain . After about 3 kilometers, My Linea started accelerating automatically.. Fortunately road was empty, I was driving alone, and alone in car, and I took it on the curb and rested the engine. After gathering some courage, again started Engine, the same symptom, the RPM shooted 5000 + in no time.. Surprising after I pressed the Clutch the rpm dropped and release of clutch rpm went up. Called Fiat Road Side assistance, and they promptly took all details and assured road side assistance. By this time, some 20 minutes have elapsed,and again tried making engine up. This time, there was no issue, the RPM meter shows stable 1000 .. My office was close by ..so took risk to traveling 2 Km .. and reached safely. Called Fiat Road side assistance and rescheduled Towing pickup to 1100 hrs. At this hour, I am scared on what happened.. . and I wish someone to analyse this problem to root.. to have a psychological peace.. Thanking you, Bandoo --- Double Post Merged, Nov 15, 2014 --- READ THE HEADING AS "UNCONTROLLED ACCELERATION"
