hi all.i'm mart from birmingham.my girlfriend has recently bought a 1.8 ford focus tdci on an 03 plate.its been great until yesterday when all of a sudden its started making a juddering sound whilst idling almost like the timing has gone mad....this only happens whilst idling though,when giving it some gas it is fine.there is no power loss or anything and the turbo kicks in when it should..it drives perfectly well but this noise is annoying at junctions and you can feel it vibrating through the clutch peddle and the brake peddle.
anyone got any ideas what could be causing this?i just hope its a cheap fix.
thanks in advance
