im having yet more grief with my astra.
i have a 1.8 sport which has a nasty stutter when pullling off in first gear, it feels like the clutch is juddering but the clutch was replaced about 1000miles ago by MR CLUTCH. also when three people are in the car and its going over speed humps you smell the clutch, like its burning. should i take this back to them and get the clutch replaced or could it be any other problem you guys might know about.
also i was told by the guys at ATS that the centre box has disintergrated from inside. would this cause the stuttering effects thought to be from the clutch. if not what adverse effects would it have on the car.??
and finally, when revving the car you can smell petrol from the outside of the car. i do seem to use lots of fuel but ive changed the filter and thats only helped so much. i dont know if this is related but after putting in new plugs, two weeks later they were black. cleaned them again, about a week later, black again. whats happening with my ride people?????
cheers for the help in advance
ps, heres work thats been done to rule anything out,
