Accelerator Question
Ive been noticing something odd with the Berlingo. If in 2nd or 3rd Gear i lift my foot off the accelerator slowing down to a junction Traffic lights etc. The Van seems to jump slightly, not sure if that describes it correctly  Smile
I'm wondering if the Engine or Gear Box Mountings are perhaps a bit worn. It's done 128000. 
Anyone had this or can advise on what it might be ?
for any replies
It could be your engine/g/box mountings. Try pulling the engine towards you . if it moves easily they are worn
, theres one at the g/box end, one at the back of the engine and one at the drivers side.
2001 1.9d DW8B  Berlingo

thanks for the reply.
i'll try and have a look tomorrow. If it is the engine mounts are they an easy fix ?
Had a go at trying to move the engine forward this morning. I'm either very weak in my Old Age  Smile
Or it's not moving very much. It has a slight movement maybe a centimetre or so. Not sure whether to buy new mounts and replace them. Or just live with it.
