Shudder In Low Revs

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a 2006/56 plate Ford Fiesta 1.2, style. I've had it a few months, with no major dramas. Today however in, low revs (1st gear) about 1200 -1500 RPM I felt the car shudder, as I was lifting of the clutch and giving it gas. I initially thought it was just some wheel spin, as it was raining quite heavy. Pulled onto the motorway, car accelerated with no issues, seems fine. Arrive at some lights and I get the same problem in first gear again, and all the way home at roundabouts etc.

I'm really confused as to what it might be. I also noticed when parked, and left running in neutral, a gentle metal scraping/grinding sound can be heard coming from the back of the engine - could it be a transmission oil problem? But it selects gears just fine.

Has anybody encountered this before? Apologies in advance if I left out any details,let me know if I you need more info! :)

Thanks

not sure if you might have an EGR valve, as they are becoming more common in modern day petrol and diesel...

If its just a shudder, it could have been difficulty breathing for a moment, may be worth checking the quality of the air and fuel filters, and replace as necessary.

thanks for the reply - the problem was due to the clutch, swapped it out, and it runs just fine now.

Need to remove the post!
