Juddering under load?
Posted 29 July 2012 - 17:36
The past few months I've noticed a strange issue with my 55 plate VRS. Last year my turbo went pop and as well as scaring the crap out of me it also ensured that I didn't drive the car hard since.
After this I then had a boost leak for about the past month as there was a small split in the lower boost pipe connected to the inter cooler. (since had this fixed)
I gave the car a 'sprited' drive for the first time in a long time yesterday and noticed that the car appears to judder under load. Especially in the higher gears (e.g. Foot to the floor in 3rd gear from say 30mph). I did a little reading and heard that perhaps there could be an issue with the injectors. ( or possibly injector wiring loom) Anyway, I ran some diesel Redex through the tank and it's made little difference.
I don't drive the car hard at all & my missus uses the car as a daily commute for around 30 miles a day. I feel I've been pretty unlucky with the car over the last few years as I've gone through a turbo and a new clutch! When I had the clutch replaced I didn't change the DMF at the same time do you think it could be the DMF despite the fact that the car only judders when pushed as I don't see this problem with gradual acceleration?
Hoping someone can help shed some light as my mechanical knowledge is poor at best.

standard clutch plate, DMF, and release bearing from darkside was £414 delivered next day, new gearbox oil (from dealer £54), 2 weekends work (due to weather and other things i had to do)
when i spoke to darkside to order the parts they asked if it was stock or i planned to goto more power so i got the right spec parts, also said most seem to go at between 60-80k miles
the other thing that seems to point to a dmf issues is judder on tick over that dissappears if you push the clutch pedal down
are you standard or mapped etc?

Weights or clutch ?
I have a spare clutch so neither are a problem to sort out but would rather not have the fitting cost of the clutch to handle just at the moment.
