I have recently purchased another Astra G as my previous one was wrote off due to a rear end shunt. Its a V Reg 1.4 16v (so a X14XE engine) in Polar Sea Blue.
Car goes great although it seems a little slower than my previous 1.4 so I have renewed the usual things like plugs, air filter and I am going to change the fuel filter within the next week as from past experience I know these can significantly affect the performance of a car.
However the car has a bad judder when pulling off in 1st gear. My first thoughts are that this is an engine/gearbox mount as it only does it when pulling off (possibly ruling out a clutch related problem). It doesn't judder at any other speed under acceleration, but the gearstick does slightly judder when slowing down in gear.
I'd be grateful for any insights into what the problem could possibly be (maybe there are known areas/components to fail) and how much the relevent parts would be from Vauxhalls/ebay.
