    Default Car Jumping When Accelerating

    Hello all,

    My first post so hello

    I've just upgraded from a Vectra B DTi SRi to a Vectra C DTi Sri and I'm a bit concerned by a problem I've just noticed.

    When I accelerate in 1st, 2nd and 3rd I seem to get a bit of a jolt that seems to be coming from the front end. The only way I can think to describe it is that its like the engine is rocking back as I accelerate. The car is running fine, no lag or misfiring and you don't really notice it in 4th or 5th.

    Cheers in advance

    Martin

    Is this quite a big fix? Just had to shell out over 300 notes for my Fiesta and don't really fancy paying a fortune to get this one fixed

    Thanks for your help Paul

    Maybe also worth mentioning that I can also feel the jolt through the gear stick. Nothing violent, just the movement.
