Fiesta Shuddering When Idle

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Thought I would grab some opinions.

To set the stall out the car (MK6 fiesta ) has been lowered, and has a full stainless steel exhaust system, and its passed an MOT on Tuesday with just a exhaust bracket needing replaced.

The car seems to violently shudder/shaking when its idle , ie at a traffic lights or parked up, you can really feel it moving underneath you. I just put it down to the fact the exhaust is moving around underneath the car.

But upon "googling" the symptoms, it seems that the shuddering could be caused possibly by a damaged engine mount, or gearbox, or an exhaust mount, or even the butterfly valve.

At the weekend I am going to investigate the engine department and try and find the mounts, I have a 80 day mechanical warranty but the garage is in Southampton (im in Bournemouth) and just want to make sure that im exploring every possible option before driving there, see if anyone else has had this issue, or am is it just the case that the exhaust is causing the shuddering.

Thoughts please?

ps. the revs don't move at all.
