    Default Engine Juddering and struggled to reach 70 mph

    hi, got onto the motorway today and the car started to judder at around 45-50mph pulled over on the hardshoulder and stopped and started engine problem didnt go away there was no engine mangement light, tryed to reach at least 80mph but the car was really strugling at around 65-70mph, when i finally got home topped it up with some antifreeze and took it back on the motorway everything was fine car wasnt juddering and took it to ***mph without any problem. anyone know what this problem could have been and is it likely to re-occur?...Also id like to know what precautions or checks people are doing to their 150cdti for the cold weather?

    Thanks

    Possibly No3 injector wiring?

    Unless you've already had it re-wired.

    Sorry, not sure on the price of parts / labour as mine was done under warranty for the exact same symptoms you described.

    Just found a How-to, this would be cheaper than getting Vx to do it and i'm fairly sure the parts will be less than £20.

    Yeah do it yourself and it will only be £12 for the parts!

    Does sound like the injector problem mind, would get it done soon as possible, I did mine as I was getting juddering at aroun 1800rpm.

    sweet as a nut now
