Need to manual shift for power
My new 2015 Solera 24W has me baffled. I have discovered that I have to manually shift down to second gear at stop lights and other stopping situations to get enough power to get going again. As my speed increases I manually shift up to Drive or 4th and then down again for power as the speed decreases. I am wondering if this is normal or not. I am hungry for more power and am looking into the Sprinter Store for the increase. But I think that the engine should produce more power from a dead stop if its left in Drive so that I don't have to shift down and back up at every stop.
I am wondering what others experience. And then there is towing. If this is the case, as it is for me, then when towing, I must have to really ride the red line in order to keep enough power available.
I appreciate any ideas or experience you have had like this and what you did about it. Thanks in advance.
