Drunk Judder on pull-away


I've been asking lots of "how-to" questions recently because I'm the proud owner of a GTV 3.0 V6 for only about a month now, and would like to restore/repair her to her best condition. My current problem is a slightly juddering clutch when pulling away slowly. What could be the cause of this? It's slightly annoying when driving through traffic, but I normally pull off quite briskly so it wasn't that evident at first.

Anyone have an answer?

I had a similar problem on my Fiat Coupe and it turned out that it needed a new clutch.

The the judder was worse when the car was hot.

Clutch judder is often a worn out clutch bearing, so it makes sense to change the clutch at the same time as the gearbox has to come out. Unlikely to be a cylinder problem unless you are having trouble engaging gears when the clutch is depressed.

Agreed, a full clutch kitwould be the best option here, if left it can damage the diff and driveshafts.

i'm in the same probs. now the judder is accompanied by a kind of chatter from the clutch. garage says thrust bearing issue, and a clutch kit fix. looking into doing the flywheel conversion too. not finding any gta spares so am thinking of buying the alfaholics kit. at near 400 its a tad expensive but lightweight, all the bits inc. clutch kit and my local garage is reasonable on labour.
