Engine Hickup

I took my new 24R for a shakedown cruise last weekend - generally went very well, though a couple of issues came up.

One issue is that the engine had a big hesitation (one time only) when starting from a stop light. It seemed as though it began normally but then, about the time it would be shifting to second gear, it was as if power shut down completely for a second. Then power picked up again and everything was back to normal.

My guess is that something faulted in the transmission as it tried to shift from 1st to 2nd, but I don't have a scan tool to check for such things. Any other thoughts?

At very close to 15,000 miles on my Solera, I had the same problem that I associated with some bad Diesel fuel I bought (Tom Thumb-Crestview, FL) as I was pushing on the Engine Accelerator from a stop light. I believe I had some water in my tank that caused the hesitation. First time and last time that I have had this problem. Later on during the day on my 600+ mile trip, bought more fuel and have had no problems since.

I have experienced the same stumble in first or second gear accelerating up a hill. I had to let off the accelerator and take off again to build power to take off. IDK?
