Hi every one I'm new to this site/forum I just bought a 2006plate focus 1.8tdci and there is a lot of vibration mainly in gear 1-2 and the vibration is not as bad when I dip the clutch. The car has done a lot of mileage and is due a service but what could making it sound so loud and vibrate like it is. Thank you in advance

sounds like the DMF - dual mass flywheel. very expensive part to replace

The 1.8 doesn't have DMF.
I'd get the gearbox mount checked.

Not the 1.8. Only the 1.6/2.0

are you thinking about the right thing mate? DMF not DPF...

the 1.8 will have a DMF, also just double checked this with 2 1.8tdci's i know the reg of and its showing only a DMF

I would be very suprised if a modern diesel didnt have a DMF

to the OP, when a DMF begins to wear/break up it will become noisy and will vibrate, your symptoms seem to fit this.

As far as I'm aware only the Peugeot Citroen engines have DMF. The 1.8 is a upgraded old fashioned 8 valve Ford engine and I have been advised by Police mechanics it does not have DMF or DPF.
It only has to suffer an EGR but not for long when I get a chance to get it bypassed.

Never heard that one. Google 1.8tdci dmf...plenty of stuff comes up.
Would be really suprised at a tdci not having a dmf tbh. the 1.8, is it not a volvo engine really?

The 1.8 is Ford to it's last bolt.
The Volvo engines are the 5 cylinder ones used in the ST's

Im a ford tech and the 1.8 diesels do have dmf's and is more than likely your vibration problem.
