    Default judders then spanner warning light

    When my 3.0CDTi is cold and I accelerate the car judders/kangaroos and then the spanner warning light comes on. Switching the engine off resets the light but the next time I accelerate hard it comes on again. Doesn't seem to happen once the engine has warmed up.

    I'll take it to the local stealers tomorrow but wanted to know if anyone has any ideas of what it might be in case they try the 'can't find anything wrong' line or attempt to fix things that don't need fixing.

    Thanks

    Don't know the 3 litre, but I had a similar problem with mine 2.2. Cleaned the EGR-valve, and no more faults.

    Thanks for the advice. Will have a look but don't have 2 hours spare to fix it this week so may have to resort to using the stealers to fix it.

    Couldn't even find the EGR valve so car at the stealers now for them to check the diagnostics.
