I suspect you have a different problem, either fuel or head gasket , check the color of the plugs, if there are two that appear light color, it may be a gasket problem, if they are all dark fuel

could be a falling cam sensor or O2 sensor, O2 sensors don't like being cold as it takes longer to heat up and ecu reads it as a fault. cam sensor these fail more when they get hot. dirty MAF/MAP sensor can also affect the engine.

It's starving for fuel. The main component there is the MAS -- mass airflow sensor, very common to go bad. Tap on it and sometimes that will make it rev lower or stall. It's inline with the black tubing that goes to the air filter. They run around $200 but are very very easy to put in yourself with a little care.

Mini cooper clutch judder on starting off

It sounds like your clutch may have been replaced not to long ago, but the Flywheel (on the back of the Engine where the Clutch Disc makes contact), may be warped. If your clutch hasn't been replaced and you have this "shudder", then put the parking brake on, start the car, place the gear shift in 2nd and with your foot on the clutch and the brake, slowly let the clutch out. If the clutch is let out slowly and the engine dies out, then your clutch is okay. If the engine doesn't die, then your clutch is worn out and could be giving you your shudder. Hopefully this will help. Next time, leave a little bit more information such as mileage or if the clutch has ever been replaced, how long this has been going on and the such. Please write me back if this doesn't give you an idea as to what and where the shuddering may be coming from.

Good Luck in Advance,

97 Subaru Impreza shudders

I must say I enjoyed reading your post, you sound very nice. The problem sounds like possibly the C-V joints may need attention. They will cause a vibration and a grinding noise very noticeable at slow speeds. I hope this helps with your situation and hope you have a wonderful day.

Jeep shudders and brake lights flicker as I turn ignition off.

It sounds like the engine is diesiling -- this is usually caused by incorrect ignition timing and/or buildup of carbon on the pistons/valves. Also, lower octane gas can contribute to this.

Sounds like it needs a tune-up.
