Hi there thanks So would you describe it as a wobble /judder (not a missfire ) And do you think it happens more between 2200 rpm and 2500 rpm Also has ANY previous engine work been carried out Is there any pulsing from the clutch pedal or idling issues noises or engine vibrations Kind regards ***** ***** Brian
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Defently a judder
Only notice it in 4 or 5 gear
More in 5th gear at 50 when I increase speed slowly that's when it judders
Not sure what the revs are but I will check
I had the cam belt done but the judder was all ways there
Sometimes when idling the engine tone drops but not all the time
Only for a second
No noise from the clutch
When it judders I feel it through the car
Haven't noticed any misfiring
I've owned the car for 6 years bought it with 60000 miles
It has got more noticeable over the last year
Only doing 5000 miles between mot
Car has 90000 miles now

Thanks Can you check the Rev range the fault appears at and also try light throttle 2nd/3rd gear to see if it happens at the sane Rev range ie: does it only happen when you load the engine up Regards ***** ***** Brian
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok I'll get back to you
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can just feel it in 2/3rd gear very faint
More in 4/5 between 1800/ 2200 rpm
It feels as if I was doing 20 in 5th gear
But the engine sounds fine

Hi there good afternoon to you Ok from your description of the fault I would suspect what we call an injector imbalance (I have only ever seen this on the 1.8tdci )Your symptoms are exactly what I would expect to see see ie:1800-2200 rpm under light load you get a judder The first time I came across this was many years back and it took several hours of diagnostics before tracing it to an imbalanced injector (possibly poor spray pattern under certain loads ) as if you drive the vehicle hard you won't feel it Ok now fit the diagnostics it's lucky enough to
Expert:  Gallagher99 replied 1 year ago.
Have a few spare injectors at my disposal of which I swapped one injector at a time to find the offending injector This fault took me by surprised as the vehicle idled and also ran perfect apart from this wobble /judder under certain loaded engine conditions If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know If you were satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE REMEMBER TO RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice day Any positive feedback is kindly appreciated
