Stuttering When Accelerating

Hi, has anyone had a problem with stuttering, after slowing down from 70mph to say 60 then easing back on the power my Focus 1.6 TDCI stutters and seems to struggle its not for long and it doesnt do it all the time ,if someone has had the same problem i would love to hear from them

exactly the same problem with Ford Kuga 2.0 TDCI. I found out that in winter (low temperature) there is no problem but when the temperature is more than 12C the mild shuttering is back.

Anyone suggest what to look at in engine?
