Jerky acceleration sometimes around the 2.5 mark
1.9 jtdm 150HP saloon.
When my car gets warm (temp is ~90) when accelerating, it starts jerking / skipping. And I can clearly hear a "skipping" sound as well. Not sure if it's clutch, wheels or shaft or what it is.
It doesn't happen when the car is cold I think. My theory is that a component that is supposed to measure air pressure or something is partially clogged and this state changes when the engine is warm (stuff expands). Could this be correct. Could it be as easy as cleaning a sensor?
I am worried because as this problem goes on (it won't go away) will put strain on shafts and in the end wreck my car and leave me a huge bill. I really need help to sort this out without taking to the shop again. I just can't afford any more trips to the shop as I have replaced half of the car's components already... Including the steering shaft... Else than that, the car is in a very good state, and I am in general really happy with it. Especially now that the common problems with it are permanently fixed.
