Fusion Semi Auto

Recommended Posts

Hi all

New to forum so not sure if I'm posting in the right place here!

Anyway i have a ford fusion 2, 2003 reg 1.4 duratec petrol with the semi auto box! I suffers with clutch judder when a pull off mainly the first drive off the day but could last all day, but i have noticed this morning that if i drive it manually for a few minutes it cleared the juddering, so has anyone any idea what the problem could be please?

I just put it down to a bad/ warped clutch so was just going to run it until it failed but now i think it's more of a simpler fix now!

Thanks chris

Try a new set of Spark Plugs, I would recommend the Denso iridium ITV16's. Just avoid the Bosch super 4's

For any plugs make sure they are gapped at 1.0mm

I have found that my car runs a lot better on premium grade fuel, as well as the judder it would occasionally misfire when pulling away in auto mode.

Good plugs and good fuel fixed it for me.

Just done a service couldn't tell you what plugs i put in though, engine has never been lumpy in fact it's always been very responsive & believe it or not it actually runs better on asda than premium petrol!

This is definitely clutch judder but like i said it seems to clear when i drive manually for a few minutes. Odd i know but that all, other other than that it's a spot on motor!

I bought this fusion has a stop gap between car until i could find another car & really thought it was going to be an horrible car to use but it turns out it alright an it's grown on me, fusion's get a hard time for not being fashionable or what ever & it's undeserved i think!
