Hello,

I recently purchased an 02 1.8 tdci with 130k on the clock and while performing a 3 point turn lost all drive. I had it taken to a garage thinking the clutch had completely given up on me but on replacing the clutch, the garage found that there was a further issue. They had to replace a sheared drive shaft and put in a second hand gearbox as they said the gearbox diff had also failed. I received the car and it drove well until I found that when the turbo kicked in on 4th and 5th gears, the clutch would slip and allow the engine to red line. I took it back to the garage and they put in another brand new clutch but the problem is still there and this time the car judders when taking up drive in first gear. What on earth is going on here?

if the drive shaft and diff failed ide assume the flywheel would have bent assuming that the second hand box is okay and the clutch was fitted by good mechanics it could well be the flywheel which would cost probably more than the cars going to be worthto be sure you need a gearbox specialist to look at it and determine whats at fault
