    Have you cleaned the spark plugs? When was it last serviced? Any strange noises from anywhere?
    When does it happen when idling only or whilst driving too?
    Its a jam thing

    had similar problem in the past and was the lambda sensor (it may not be on your's) best to take it to vx for a test

    Could be the EGR valve. Mine's being replaced this week. The car idles normally until the engine's warmed up then it starts racing and hunting. Anywhere between 900 and 1400rpm and it vibrates a bit. This also triggers the engine management caution light.
