    confused 1.9cdti judder and loss of power then fine.

    Driving into work I was doing around 55-60mph when the car suddenley felt like it was driving over heavily painted road markings/ hatchings. So this judder lasted probably around 10 seconds and with it seemed a loss of any extra power. I was overtaking a lorry and maintained it's speed even tho my foot was down trying to accelerate. Then as in an instant it was fine. Mentioned it to my mrs and it's done this twice for her.
    Anyone any idea what I should check or what the prob may be?

    Thanks for the reply mate. Is the EGR valve replacement a big and costly job?

    Not much work to do yourself, just need to activate the new valve with tech 2, and buy the egr in a local fiat dealer, about 130€ instead of 180€ opel/vauxhall. Dont know how much pound 1€ is. Sry

    fitting is simple also. If you need more info gis a shout.
    Good luck

    In the garage we get the same sort of problem try cleaning it first and see if that works most likely theres gunk in there.

    A big thanks to everyone for your help with this one. Because the judder has only occurred maybe 3 times tops, is it likely to be the EGR? I read the de- coke thread and thought about buying either the £20 10k boost or the wynns EGR 3 can for £6. Any thoughts on this or do I really need to get the EGR valve taken off n cleaned or replaced?
    Your thoughts on this would help possibly save me some dosh.
    Many thanks forum.
