I Have a 57 plate 1.8 diesel zetec, at high revs the car starts

Customer Question

I Have a 57 plate 1.8 diesel zetec, at high revs the car starts to kangaroo, but at low revs, its fine. But going up a steep hill in 3rd gear, it starts to shudder, dropping down into 2nd gear doesn't help.

Hello.

 

This sounds more like fuel starvation. I would recommend first you replace the fuel filter.
