It may either be the PCV Valve or a vacuum hose leak. My problem was the vacuum hose. You will have to know if you have a 1.8 or a 1.9 engine when you order the PCV valve. It is a really cheap part ($2 or so).

When I am driving along the car seems to judder mainley n on flat road when I accelerate it go.s o-k again


It depends what you mean by judder and where it comes from. If the judder comes through the steering column it could be worn or badly adjusted wheel bearings. Get it checked out by a garage or a tyre fitting shop as soon as possible.

MY 2000 BMW 318I SE IS NOT ACCELERATING PROPERLY WHEN STARTING FROM COLD I PUT MY FOOT DOWN BUT THE CAR JUST JUDDERS ALONG IF I STOP AND REV THE ENGINE PAST 5000 IT THEN SEEMS OK AFTER ALSO THE EMISSION...


There isn't a car out there that likes to be put in drive as soon as it is started. Mine especialy. I give it at least 30 seconds to warm while I am adjusting evrything and away I go. Runs like a champ. Let it warm up for a couple of minutes from a cold start.

RenaultClio 1.5dci juddering when started if it was going stall


These type of engines have direct rail injection so each cylinder has an injector. The problem sounds like the engine is only running on 3 cylinders (or less). It could be a faulty injector. Are you losing coolant? Is it overheating? Is there steam or excessive smoke coming out of the exhaust tail pipe?

hiya if you are sure that the n/s/f wheel bearing/cv joint/ and suspension joint/s are sound ? may i suggest that you check the engine mountingson the n/s front +rear ? from your symptoms it sounds very much like as you accelerate the engine is tilting due to the metallastic mounting has perished thus the juddering is engine moving along with driveshaft especially cornering ? you will have to check physically and visually the mountings or pop into local quick fit and ask to check for normally no charge? for inspecting this is common fault easilly missed on a lot of cars with f/w/drive hope this helps ?
