    Default Odd shaking - Am I going mad

    1.9 CDTI 150 2006. 56k

    First post from newbie!!

    1. Recently bought this from a main dealer but its doing things I'm not sure of. On start up the whole car moves as it fires. Not a transmission shunt. More like the engine moves and the rest of the car moves with it. Same when I switch off. Sometimes its not too bad.

    2. Possibly related. When in traffic (1st gear) and moving off, when lifting the clutch the there is a small shunt before the biting pont and when dipping the clutch it seems not to smoothly disengage all the time. If I move off in 2nd, which I had to in the snow I don't think I can feel it at all. It doesnt seem to do it on inclines

    I like to make smooth gearchanges but I'm struggling to make them all the time 1-2-3. 4-5-6 seems OK.

    Been to the dealer. 1st time they replaced 2 gearbox mounts which seemed to improve things a little. It went back on Wed and they said they can't fault it. Am I going crazy?

    I can't hear the symptoms of a DMF failure (peas in a tin when accelerating/clunk on stopping the engine etc).

    Has anyone any ideas??

    Cheers for any help

    See if you can get someone else to drive it and see if they get the same result. Sounds like Clutch/DMF which should be replaced at the same time and under warranty. Can you find out from the dealer if it has been done before?
