I am looking to buy a 2003 2.9 T6 ES auto, when I was test

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am looking to buy a 2003 2.9 T6 ES auto, when I was test driving it, I pulled out onto a road when I accelerated there was a slight juddering for a second or two whilst changing from either 1st to 2nd or 2nd to 3rd. After which all changes were smooth. I have been on the web trying to find out why it does this and reading some sites they indicate trouble with the gear box. They also say that this is a well documented. Can you please advise?

hello

due to the age of the car there are a number of possibilties

1) faulty ignition system -such as coil pack or spark plug

2) low fuel pressure, due a faulty fuel pump or clogged filter

3) vacuum / air leak on the engine intake

4) dirty / worn out transmission fluid

5) cracked or worn engine mounts

6) clogged filter in the gearbox

7) sticking gearshift solenoid

now none of these are particularly expensive to put right but if you're not doing the work yourself then you could end up paying several hundred pounds in labour to solve the issue

so I'd either look elsewhere or use the issue as a bargaining point to drive the price down
