Tdci Shudder & Window Rattle

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

New here...

Picked up my 3DR 2009 Focus Titanium 1.8 TDCi (25k Miles), 2 weeks ago.

Just have a few questions.

Tonight, I noticed a shudder when I was accelerating in 2nd & 3rd gear so stopped and revved and there is a shudder. Engine was started 5 minutes earlier so maybe because its cold? Not noticed this in the 2 weeks I've had it (500 miles)

Next, Is the windows!! Think its because of the 3dr (Bigger doors/windows), but my windows rattle once opened on every bump! Does anybody's 3dr do this?

Think that's it for now! Love the car, gone from a 2011 Polo 3 cylinder to this tank :lol:

Thanks!!

The first thing I would do with the shudder issue is buy yourself a can of BG244 cleaner to give it a good clean out, done this with mine and it sorted it. :)

Another area to check could be the engine mounts.

That could be good! Means it can be sorted :)

Gonna get some of this! Looked up on it, sounds good.

Think it would happen all the time if it was this?
