It shouldn't be juddering, most likely cause is the revs are dipping too low?

Vicki was it a 3 cylinder 1.2 engine by any chance? They love to eat valves and will cause juddering and poor idling.

Mines a 1.6 8v what ever that means lol, my revs don't drop so I'm clueless to what it could be I thought if my revs dropped then it's the plugs needing changing??, just bought the car in march and got it on the road this month just one thing after another will be quite upset if it's got bigger problems than I was told as I knew the family I bought it off quite well :/ xx

means that you have a 4 cylinder engine, but it should seek medical attention :P

 

If its only as the revs are dropping it could be an engine or gearbox mount is all thats at fault, and you could just get it replaced?

Most likely a knackered Engine mount tbh if it's out of gear, open the bonnet, grab the engine and try and rock it.

 

if it moves one of them, most likely the dog / lower box mount if causing juddering is knackered, cheap and easy to change, the other mounts are slightly dearer and need a hoist / decent jack to change and support the engine.

Check my reply to your thread Goomba I don't think it's the turbo itself but the hose or pipe that's the issue
