from cold and only once since starting off should be Ok but the common practice of leaving cars in gear when stopped soon weakens the clutch shock absorber springs, hence judder, this driving practice is also responsible for the death of dual mass flywheels on modern diesels.
Hi Rich, that's the technique I used on diesels and never wore a clutch out in over a million miles of company driving. If yours judders with a quick take off, maybe the springs are a bit soft for that sort of energy input?
will be doing a trip of over 300 miles soon so I will log the satnav v car again
