I have a c4 grand Picasso diesel with the electronic semi

I have a c4 grand Picasso diesel with the electronic semi auto gearbox. It starts and runs o.k. but when I pull away it jerks like it has a misfire then it picks up and goes. This also happens at low speeds when in slow traffic.

Just purchased an 2011 Audi A7 3.0 Tdi Quattro, a warning

HiJust purchased an 2011 Audi A7 3.0 Tdi Quattro, a warning light came on stating gearbox overheat.Went into limp mode after restart it has been ok ? But I've had a garage plug in diagnostics showing a fault code P17D400 shift solenoid ‘A' Malfunction ? Also the car now and again clunks on pulling away but is ok going through the gears, I've heard of various issues with DSG boxes ie: Mechatronic units or the clutch itself ? Any ideas please ?

I have a 2016 Renault megane sport tourer 1.5dci 110bhp had

Hi, I have a 2016 Renault megane sport tourer 1.5dci 110bhp had it from new, ok the first year but has developed a problem when changing gear, when I pull the clutch up it strongly vibrates, I also have a kangoo van1.5 d 90 bhp that does the same, will do It a tinny bit for my wife when she drives and the mechanic at the Renault garage but only slightly, I have tried moving the seat up and down forward and back and have tried sitting on a cushion and a cushion behind back, but I am struggling to stop it from vibrating, the renault mechanic said he has had many customers in with similar complaints about the seating position and not getting it Wright, he then said it seems to be with the 1.5 DCI engine's but said there is nothing wrong with my car.The only thing I can think of is the seating on both vehicles are set at an angle so they slope backwards like a bucket seat, and me being short I find the edge of my seat catching on my legs enabling me to bring my leg up properly hence causing it to vibrate, have put a cushion behind my back which seems to help with the problem in the van, but in the car still having trouble with it.The only way it doesn't do it is if after changing gear I wait for the revs to drop right down before I lift clutch peddle up, but being a turbo then have to wait for it to kick in, ok on motorway driving but around town a nightmare, as I'm going way to slow for the engine to pick up again after changing gear, I'm not an erratic driver always drive smoothly when accelerating and changing gear.have you heard of this before and is there anything else I can do about this as the mechanic said that if this happens regularly it will disintegrate the clutch and gear box over time.RegardsAlex Baldry.

My Volvo V50 1.8 petrol 2008 estate car is having clutch (I think) issues. Have had clutch replaced a few months ago but the fault has started again. Much as described on this page, floppy pedal and difficult/impossible to get in gear when moving. Left it on the drive overnight and it worked fine the next morning and for the next 3 days. Went again this evening on the way home and just managed to limp on to drive as I was only around the cornerAssistant: How many miles are on the clutch? Has it been slipping or sticking?Customer: Not sure about miles but it was installed beginning Dec last year. Clutch not slipping or sticking but sometime a bit "sticky" to get in gearAssistant: What year is your V50?Customer: 08Assistant: Are you fixing your V50 yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: No I went to my usual mechanic and they fitted a new clutch. The RAC guy who helped my home last time (Dec) thought it might be clutch bearings worn and slippingAssistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: Think that is about it
