In Topic: TDCi juddering - please help

30 March 2009 - 02:30 PM

My 2003 TDCi has started juddering. If I'm driving at about 40mph in 3rd or 4th gear on a part throttle the car stutters as if it's about to run out of fuel. At motorway speeds or in normal acceleration it's fine. Any ideas ?


Hi. Silly question, but you haven't put petrol instead of diesel in it, have you??? I did and suffered exactly the same symptoms. Reckon I was running on a 50/50 mix. Drained tank & refilled with diesel. Everything ok. If you think you might have put petrol in, drain it PDQ, as diesel lubricates pump - petrol doesn't and replacing pump is expensive. Cheers.
