Juddering My Audi A3 1.9 tdi judders at speeds around 60mph. I have had various things replaced and put onto a machine many times to determine the problem. However, it is still doing the same. The emission light has appeared this morning too. Any ideas

    It just feels like driving over uneven surfaces - all the time. At times, for example, when going around a corner, there is some hesitance, but I feel this on the accelerator pedal. Is this any better?

    The better question is, what do you mean by shutter? momentary loss in power? the wheel is shuttering? Please be a bit more specific.

    that light is probably indicating a misfire .... but that's from the shudder.... what i need to know is does the shudder feel like the motor or another thing on your car ?

I would guess your wheels might be out of alignment, or as the other person said, perhaps a separated belt. Either way, it sounds related to your wheels. If it isn't that, it might be a suspension problem, but deal with the least expensive possibilities first.

Get your alignment checked to eliminate that possibility.

Sounds like one of the belts on the tire(s) have seperated. quick way to tell is to remove one tire at a time and roll it down the driveway... if a belt is seperated it will be very obvious then.

Gota Mitsubishi colt az2 petrol 2010 plate. juddering at about 1600-2000 revs all gears. Was serviced 2 weeks ago, auntie reported problem the engineers at dealers said nothing wrong with it. I've checked...

By any chance were the timing and balance belts replaced? If the job was not correctly (even dealer staff get it wrong, usually by taking a short cut) and the balance belt is 180 degrees off, the engine will vibrate and shudder at around 2000 rpm. If the juddering was not present before the work, take it back. These things don't happen by magic.

Juddering after changing front tyres and pads

If you just changed the brake pads with out machining the disc rotors then that will give you a problem straight up especially if the rotors were damaged from the pads worn down too far. There is a way of putting on new tyres and if not fitted correctly you may get a problem there as well. Check the mould line on the side of the tyre that is almost at the rim and see if it is the same distance from the rim all the way around on both sides . This will show if the tyres have been fitted correctly

My Renault megane 2003 began juddering on the motorway doing around 70mph then the engine management light kept flicking on and off. I pulled over stop the engine turned all electrics off and restarted it,...

Check the timing belt. It should have been changed at 60,000 miles. Sounds like you have lost some teeth on the synchronous belt resulting in lost timing. Damage to valves can occur. look under plastic cover on the end of the head for the belt

Audi A4 2.5 TDI Juddering when pulling away.

get it plugged into diagnostic equipment that way you can see what clutches are being used and what power is being used by the solenoids if the oil was low it would have run hot and that is not good news for auto boxes

Audi A4 coil pack

There are 4 coils, one for each cylinder. Audi tend to replace one at a time to save costs. So yes this is probably quite likely.
