Clio 1.2 16v Juddering Problem NEED HELP!
Hi all, this is first post, unfortunately its for advice/help please. Please move this to the appropriate section if this is in the wrong one admins!
I appreciate any feedback!
I have a strange problem with my 16v extreme which started happening a few days ago, I will try and explain this as best as I can.
Every now and then when I am driving my gear stick judders violently (and so does the car) when I change gear and start to accelerate. But sometimes it happens when I am already in gear and my rev's are up (normal conditions). I recently topped up the engine
which reduced the number of times this was happening (btw the car only judders for about 2 seconds). Whilst the car is juddering it seems to lose power and the revs drop and it doesn't respond to the accelerator, after a few seconds it suddenly starts to respond and accelerate again and the juddering stops. This happens with a hot and cold engine. Today driving home I figured out then when the car is juddering if I take my foot completely off the accelerator it stops juddering! and when I put my foot back on it starts to judder again (only sometimes not all the time). This problem has got me very concerned and and scared to go out driving in-case I break down on a motorway or something. This is my very first car as I'm 18 and don't have a clue about cars (apart from general maintenance) . Thanks a lot everyone
