    Default Not sure what to check now

    heya , I have a 1.9 CDTI 120 and thought I had the old EGR problem from what I had read on the site, so I cleaned it up as advised(1 of the great "how to's on the site). This helped for a bit, then the stuttering/juddering got worse so I changed it for a new one which again helped. Soon the problem got worse again so after more reading more,I removed and cleaned the boost pressure sensor. Again this improved the problem for only a few days so I just replaced it for a brand new genuine vx one. I am still having slight juddering about the 2500 revs on slow acceleration.
    Can anyone advise me on my next move as I dont know what to do. Maybe I'm just lookin in the wrong place!
    Cheers

    So to recap as my 1st thread isnt very clear,
    I changed the EGR and the Boost Pressure Sensor with genuine vx bits and I'm still getting a slight juddering at 2500 revs on slow acceleration.

    and its a 06 1.9 cdti 120

    Thanks

    do the 120's suffer from bad injector connectors on the number 3 cylinder like the 150's? also there was a field fix (software update) for that problem, again i dont know if its for the 120's as well.

    from what I understand the 120's don't have that problem but I could be wrong.

    When you got a new egr valve - was it tech 2'd to the car? They have to be programmed onto the motor otherwise you will suffer worse performance bud.
