    Juddering

    Hey,

    I have a 1998 1.4 16v mk4.

    All is well, apart from very occasionaly it will judder while cruising and i have to give it a bit more gas to stop it, then its fine again.

    Car needs a new thermostat, could this be it? (I know nothing about engines! haha)

    Does it sometimes in second round corners, 3rd 4th and 5th when low revs.

    Any ideas?

    Any help is appreciated

    Sounds like your using too low a gear for the revs. Pulling away from a tight corner at low revs in 3rd,4th and 5th will generally make the car judder as its struggling to pull away, therefore you will need more gas.

    I don't corner 3r 4th or 5th, i was ony saying that it does it more often in those gears at low revs (between 1 and 2).
