Anyone with the same problem?

Recommended Posts

So I've had my car about 6 months now, every time it sets off from 1st it judders, it feels like wheelspin but it definitely isn't. After 1st it's perfect there are no other problems and it's smooth when shifting. I've read somewhere that it's something to do with being a dry dual clutch, but that's all I found. It's an automatic 2.0 diesel. Just curious if anyone else had experienced this? It can get very annoying in traffic!

Common on the powershift. Need to take it for an aggressive drive occasionally. Also stiffening the rear engine mount helps

As I understand it, the PowerShift dual clutch auto box is specified on Focus models in USA.

There is a good general Focus web site based there with lots of info on transmissions problems. That's a bad sign, people only post when they have a problem.

This is the site

http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/general-technical-chat/

You have to be a member to carry out a search but you can bypass this requirement with this trick. In Google construct a search in this format

powershift site:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/general-technical-chat/

It will only search the nominated site and give you results containing the selected word.

Replace the word powershift with any other you think would home in on your problem better and search again.

I personally don't use Google because of their policy on data storage and tracking. This search trick will work equally well on

https://duckduckgo.com/

They don't track you and do just as good a search.

Good luck,

ScaniaPBman

Thank you everyone for taking the time to reply. 

One thing I forgot, it's fine when I drive in the morning until the engine warms up. Strange eh?
