My Hyundai Creta Diesel moves forward in the second gear even when one doesn't press the accelerator. Is this a normal phenomenon?
By: kalibaba on 29 july 2016
Yes, this is totally normal in diesel cars due to low end torque. At lower speeds since the engine rpm is already very low, sufficient fuel is reaching the engine therefore when you switch gears there is already enough power getting through to pull the car forward. This is a commonly observed phenomena in most diesel powered SUV's but this should not be done again and again as it will harm the engine over a long period of time and reduce engine life by wearing out the parts.
