Hi guys. The clutch on my note (for a while now) judders. I have read the other posts about this, but my car has done 130,000 (yes one hundred and thirty thousand) miles, still on the first clutch. Along with the clutch judder, i have been getting times when the power from the engine just seems to stop for a second or two, and then carries on as if nothing happened. My question therefore is, what the hell is going on ^^, do i need a new clutch, and if i do, can it done by myself. Really starting to getannoying now as it has been doing it for about 5/6 months on and off.

Aidsy1 I don't know about the clutch but 130, 000 miles is some going & may be worth replacing.My wifes is the auto. Can you adjust clutches, I think on some motors you can adjust the cable.
Have a look at the entry on the fuel system cleaner BG44K, may be worth a try but I'd contact the supplier/manufacturer to see if they think it will be ok on a high mile motor. This stuff cleans the fuel system, injectors and is saidto get rid of carbon deposits & stuff.

a lot of clutch judder on modern cars is down to the fact there heavly sintered and made from a harder organic compound the same as brake pads are now
imo its more that likely the pressure plate is getting a tad weak at 130K miles and no doubt your left leg is toolol

I think what Flash is saying.......Your clutch is knackered.


Change the lot.....clutch disc, diaphragm/cover and thrust bearing. You may as well, while it's all stripped out.
By a decent kit from about £110.......there are cheaper ones about though.

3 in 1 is the 3 parts.......plate, diaphragm/cover and release bearing. 2 in 1 is minus the release bearing.
Buy the 3 in 1.
No point hoiking it all out, only to do it again later on for the release bearing.


Give them a ring and see what's in the kit, to be on the safe side. Cheapest, isn't always the best.
