Question about 2005 Volkswagen Microbus
I have a VW Transporter van 2.5 TDI, auto.
It shudders sometimes when changing gear, mostly down but sometimes up, around 60 to 80kph. Has approx70k km. Most noticeable between 3rd and top when gently cruising.
Doesn't happen all the time, doesn't happen when manually selecting 3 or 2 or 1, doesn't happen when positive acceleration is needed.
This car has both options of auto transmission plus manual gear **** so the only reason it can shudder when the clutch is not fully released and thus takes some time, that's when it shudders, but on accelerating this will not happen cos the centripetal clutch has enough torque such that the clutch is pressed hard to the cam & therefore no shuddering. On cruising speed the probability of clutch slipping making the car shudder. Thus changing the clutch assembly ought eliminate this problem....sodeep
