Juddering in Town Traffic
« on: October 21, 2021, 04:45:59 pm »
Hey All,

Quick question, my golf GTD has just begun to judder when in traffic but not when on a normal drive.

Any ideas what this could be? Nothing flags up on VAG com

Manual or DSG?  Juddering when pulling away in 1st, or whilst cruising?

Manual, seems to be fine and only happens when it town based traffic and moving at low speeds.

Also seems to sound like its doing it when the engine is warm and u restart the engine

Well if it's a shuddering through the car when taking up the clutch bite, it's probably the clutch and/or dual mass flywheel.

If it was a fuel delivery issue, it would almost certainly fault code.

When it's juddering, are the engine coolant fans running? Could be doing a regen of the DPF, I noticed my Scirocco doing it the other weekend, was just juddering at idle.
