Hi there ,good afternoon to you and sorry for the delay
Ok are any warning lights illuminated in the dash display
Does the juddering feel like the vehicle is holding back power
Is this more noticeable on harder acceleration
Kind Regards ***** *****

Hi Brian
Ok from your description of the issue I would suskext a fault with the ignition system
Is :worn spark plugs or a fault with one of the spark plug leads
So this would be the first port of call
The spark plugs should be changed every 37,500 miles
The spark plug leads can suffer from arcing internally due to hairline cracks internal of the lead
If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know
