My mate has recently bought a 2003 1.6 8v club with 60k on the clock, when pulling away, the car judders, but drives fine all other times, smooth gear change etc its just initially pulling away, also pulling away in reverse. Ive had a quick look at it for him today, and the front engine mount was shot to bits, so I have replaced that thinking that was the problem, however it is still there, I now think that the judder has caused the engine mount to fail prematurely???
Its hard to explain, but its an engine judder, not steering / suspension etc.
Any help or suggestions really appreciated, as dont want to go to garage who will say wants a clutch or something when it doesnt.
