Re: Clutch Judder Experiences and Latest Information

I fixed mine by getting a new DMF. I had a new clutch plate at the same time as it was an opportune moment.

Re: D3 MT Cold Rough Idle

Allso, it could be a problem with the Pierberg pressure converter for the EGR valve. The vacuum hoses are also known to perish.

Re: D3 MT Cold Rough Idle

Hi

If the car has had dpf issues in the past then the inlet manifold and the EGR can become seriously gunked up. I had mine off and steam cleaned.

Re: V Power Diesel - Owners Experience

Ive used nothing else for 10 years, apart from when ive been away and not ben able to get it. The difference is noticeable. The car seems more responsive and efficient.

Re: D3 MT DPF Service Icon at 120,000

Re: D3 MT Flat spot at high revs
