this has started happening in the last week or so and its starting to get annoying.

 

if im traveling down the road at 30mph in 3rd gear, when my foot is on the accelerator pedal its fine, but as soon as i lift off the acelerator, the car jerks violently, but as soon as i put my foot on the clutch (all the way down) it goes away, but when i lift off, it does it again, its intermitant at the mo but its more oftern than not.

 

i am having some idle issues but thats not the main issue (got a feeling the ISCV need cleaning up/replacing) but i doubt they could be connected could they?

 

any help appreciated

you need to check under the motor.

 

you looking for signs of thick gel like liquid, can usually be found oozing from a pouch like pocket on the belly of the car.

 

additional symptoms can range form:

 

addition of a tail like protrusion from rear of vehicle

requiring additives in the fuel supply (grass or small shrubs)

sudden clicking noise from front end

vehicle tends to veer off toward any well whenever you attempt to pass one due to its obsessive need to rescue someone named "timmy"

 

hope that helped :thumb:
