Hi John

 

Glad they helped.

 

As for the oil that's to be expected so nothing to worry about there.

Thought I'd post an update, since cleaning the valve body as described above, touch wood, I've not had any issues since.
One, very happy man :-)
Thanks to all that helped

John - glad to hear this seems to have solved it for you, and happy to know it's not just me to have experienced it!

 

Naz - it's called an anti shudder valve. If you give it a quick search you'll find quite a lot about it, but more often related to VAG cars. There are pictures of location on the previous page, but it's not something you'd find on a petrol car though (unless I'm very much mistaken).

Hi Sam

 

All diesel models should have this valve. Easiest thing is to look under the bonnet!
