Hi thanks Ok this is a fault I have dealt with several times on the 1.6 power shift DPS6 gearbox The issue lies with the clutch pack Some of These clutch packs were becoming contaminated with oil misting from the input shaft seals which can cause a judder on take off Before ford will authorise a new clutch there is tests that must be carried out using a live datalogger whilst producing the fault this will be carried out by your ford dealer The live data must be recorded and the file sent to ford for authorisation There is however a set /acceptable tolerance which must be by passed before ford will authorises new clutch pack There is a setting on datalogger called ISS-raw A this must have a difference of more than 550rpm when judder is apparent Your ford garage will know of this test and sometimes the vehicle needs to be road tested for a while to heat the clutches up to get the reading required If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know If you are Completely satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day Brian
