Juddering when pulling away
#1
Hi All,

A 2011 Berlingo 1.6 HDi van here, 90hp version, 37k miles, no DPF

When pulling away in 1st it gives a few violent judders sapping the power before actually taking off. If I rev it to 2k+ then slip the clutch slowly I can pull away smoothly if not slowly - but that's only going to lead to a burnt out clutch.

It will happen every time I pull away for a few weeks or so, then overnight it will sort itself out and be fine for the next few weeks - there doesn't seem to be any pattern to it

My initial thoughts were
DMF - no idea if it has one (I can PM the VIN to someone who can look it up?)
Engine mounts - They look OK if that's anything to go by
Clutch - When its working it feels normal
Engine - Some sensor faulty?? Without a code reader i'ts a bit of a black box to me

Any ideas?

Thanks

To add to the above mine changes from judder to no judder and back and forth several times within an hour.

Back from garage cleaned brakes no charge, gave them some money for cakes.

Nothing showing on the black box to indicate what the problem is so asked to drive until it gets identifiable otherwise expensive and time consuming to go through everything it could be.

At least they have recognised the problem and not my imagination.

Thanks for the update, I don't want to believe its the clutch as it looks to be a right pig of a job to inspect!

How many miles have you done on your clutch?

Still on original clutch, 73000 miles and feels good.

Garage only see the problem as potentially wearing out the clutch but unlikely to be causing the lumpy problem..

Just got to let time take its course and take extra care when going from a stationary position.

You don’t inspect a clutch nowadays, for the labour involved you’d 100% replace it! And check the dmf if fitted is in good order ??

Do you know how to check if this model has DMF?

You mean a DPF? A quick search on here with DPF will show you how to check.

DMF = Dual Mass Flywheel. The springs get weak or even break.

Put your VIN in at the site below and look in the crankshaft or clutch section.
