    I replaced my timing belt, turned over and ran fine. When putting my foot down hard there is intermittent juddering, no warning lights. Any suggestions if you have experienced the same would be grateful, thanks.

    Hi everyone, N00b GT owner here! Absolutely love my car but it has one or two un-nerving problems. Its a 2007 1.9 JTD, with 132k miles on it. Here's one of the problems... If I engage first or reverse and start to release the clutch without any accelerator input, I get massive juddering. If...

  6. 156 SW still juddering after whhel balance and tracking check

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My 156 SW is still juddering after having the front wheels balanced and the tracking checked. Even at low speeds it is felt, and can be bad but as speed increases it's less noticeable but still there.
  7. Strange juddering when on full lock - QV

    Alfa Giulia
    Hey guys, Had my Giulia QV for a few days, absolutely love it! One thing that is slightly annoying is the juddering the car does when on full lock. I.e. when I'm trying to reverse into a parking space or going round a tight roundabout. Anybody else have this? It's like a juddering, or like the...
  8. Juddering wipers

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Only when using intermittent, it's more stop and jerk than judder, anyway I pulled all the motor and linkage out, had a bit of help with how to get to the offending area, packed full of utterly unnecessary grease, the 3 contacts were caked in it as were the tracks. Cleaned everything up and...
  9. Juddering Giulietta

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hey there. I bought my 2012 Giulietta 1.4 Sportiva a month ago, and have loved it but am having some engine problems. I'm getting an intermittent serious juddering, like driving over cobbles. Engine light flashes and loss of most of the power to the accelerator. When I pull over and turn...
  10. Juddering issue + loss of power

    Alfa Giulietta
    So I've owned my 62 Veloce for 7 months now and I've had the same intermittent issue from week 2. This can happen at any time but the most common occurrence is when slowing naturally by taking my foot off the accelerator while doing any speed in any gear and then reapplying power. Next thing it...
  11. occassional juddering on 156 1.9JTD

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Can't seem to trace an occasional performance problem on my 156 1.9 JTD 16v MJ, 2005. When the car is fully warm it will seem to judder for a few minutes as if it might stall. This only happens occassionaly particularly when accelorating from say 30 to 60 mph (coming out of a speed restricted...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everybody I'm experiencing an ongoing issue with my 2006 Alfa 147 JTD 150. This all started after getting my EGR mapped out at Autolusso last year.

  14. Juddering Wipers - The Cure??

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The auto wipers on the GTA have been playing up - stopping part-way through the cycle in intermittent mode and juddering badly on all cycles - I have Bosch blades so it wasn't them. It seemed to be worse when the screen was only slightly wet. The screen is new and has "Rain-X" applied. I...

  16. Juddering on moving off in 1st

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Have noticed recently that I get a juddering when taking off in 1st gear. The juddering appears to be coming from the direction of the back wheels or axle. It appears worse when the revs are low and can be reduced by increasing the revs before dropping the clutch. It is not evident when...
  17. Bad juddering?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Yesterday I took my 159 1.9 jtdm for a spin and it felt under powered, there didn't seem to be any surge when the turbo kicked in. Today the wife returned in the car complaining something's wrong, thought it must be bad as wife usually ignores any car problems. Took it for a spin and seemed ok...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, I have a 2.4 JTDM Auto and I'm experiencing some weird juddering at speed, that is sporadic and sometimes doesn't happen at all? It seems to be happening occasionally when approaching a hill, but sometimes on the flat as well. I'd get a wave of it then it will go and then it will come...
  19. Juddering, misfire, MCSF, MAF?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, Back story, the 147 twinny (1.6) developed a judder and lack of power when I reved to 4k but once it went through it was ok. I graduated to throwing up the eml and MCSF but when I let off the power it went away. That is still there, however now I have been noticing that there is a...

    Been doing the above a few weeks now . On full lock mainly in reverse, done it the odd time going forward manoeuvring to park. Severe clonking noise heard and felt through the whole car. Any ideas ? Drive shafts /CVs ? Thanks Paul
