    Hey all,
    just been having this problem lately since a few months now.. the car hesitates alot in first gear and there is slight judder, don't know why.. been trying to figure it out:Search:..
    just recently did EGR, clean air filter, did valve clearances(althought the car starts and run fine, my suspicion is i might have left gap, as i think the engine sometimes, not all, sounds diesely).. also replaced oil pressure switch(had a leak)...
    any ideas chaps?:Unknown:

    thinking about changing gear oil today, if that makes any difference..:Ermm:
    also, just thinking through and now i remember one thing, when i was doing valve clearances, had a burst of rain.. which actually didn't go in the engine, but did see a light sprinkle on camshaft area, but not a lot, don't know if that would cause any issues:Unknown:

    The rain won't have played a part. However the repairs you carried out could have. Difficult to say without checking everything myself.

    did gear oil last night.. and that has made some difference... also noticed clutch fluid was just below min, so topped it up just below max.
    only thing is now, clutch is creaking when pressed.. :Wassat:
