Tech/Engineering - Automotive / Cars & Trucks / automatic gearbox
French term or phrase: rampage
"...phase de rampage ou de démarrage du véhicule"

(Lorsque l'on relâche la pédale de frein d'un véhicule à boîte automatique, le mécanisme d'embrayage est progressivement actionné, et le véhicule avance légèrement. Il s'agit d'un terme de jargon rentré dans le langage courant.)

Thanks in advance!

crawling / creeping
Explanation:
I came across this in a different context some time ago and came up with this. At least it makes some sort of sense in the context!

Probably creeping - a car with an automatic gearbox creeps forward when you release the brake.
