I have a very similar problem on my '93 9000. Mine only seems to do it occaisionaly too, but never does it when the engine is totally cold. I have no idea what it it, but others on this newsgroup have suggested the DI cassette. Hope this helps. -- Toby Field (UK) '93 9000 CSE 2.3T Auto 151,000 Miles "ned bicks" <nbicksnopsamo.com> wrote in message news:1176fec9.0205130752.43b300bbnopsaming.google.com... > I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
