    Default CDTI - Cold Shudder/wobble

    Mine seems to be doing this, shudders for 5 seconds then ok for a few mins, then shudders for 5 seconds, this repeats till warm or drive then its fine...

    Been reading it could be the injector contact, 3rd ones already been done, EGR is still like new and blanked but car has been stood quite a while...

    Will clean and cable tie the contacts on, but is there anything else it could be if this doesn't work?

    Mine has done this since I've had it - no idea what causes it. Feel like a cough/stutter every few seconds when idle?

    No it's more of a violent shudder of the engine for few seconds, then normal for a bit, then the shudder again. Only does it on initial start up, once warm or driven idle is fine...

    Sounds similar but a bit worse than what mine is doing. Mine only does it when it's cold and idling. It's not that violent in mine, yet... Be interesting to find out what it is.

    Mine shudders slightly for five or ten seconds, or unless i blip the throttle when its really cold, i think its just sticky injectors.

    It's not a violent shake, just sounds violent, but yes, revved or warm it goes away...
