[quote name='mike4369' post='7694' date='Nov 24 2008, 05:15 PM']Mine has started to do the same but despite cleaning the EGR it has not cured the fault. I have also changed the throttle pedal thinking it may have had a flat spot since I had to depress it about an inch before the revs build , this had no effect, also the juddering starts at the same spot on the pedal whatever gear/speed. Totally confused
Turned out to be a split in the rubber pipe between the turbo and intercooler quote the mechanic "Its a common fault" once changed the car drives like a dream and is doing more MPG (reduced MPG is another symptom). It is poss to DIY fix
The pedal issue turned out to be a red herring and I wasted a lot of time persuing it.
edit the pipe in question was between the intercooler and the egr
