S-Max juddering when cold

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone on here can give me some advice..

My S-MAX has developed an intermittant fault when cold, under moderate accelleration when cold the car judders, much like a misfire.  If I got easy on the throttle it doesn't do it.  After about five minutes of driving it's fine, and if I park for 30 mins and come back to the car it's still fine. Have checked for fault codes and nothing is reported.

A couple of weeks ago I was a bit enthusiastic pulling away, starting it up, into drive and pulling away within a few seconds and a warning came up 'Limited Transmission Function', but this went away after a restart.  

Had the gearbox oil level checked and it's fine.

Thanks for reading and if anyone can offer any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
