Vibrations at 1500 to 2500 rpm

Postby yellowplum » Sun Nov 19, 2017 11:44 am

I had the clutch and flywheel changed on the car a few days ago and all seemed good. A bit of play in the old flywheel was noticeable and burn spots on the clutch disc. However I am still getting vibrations when you put your foot down and the the turbo engages.

Anyone have some thoughts, thought it could be engine mounts or the belt.

I had this for ages drive me crazy. It was the bonnet strut. Such an easy fix in the end

Seriously!

It's an odd thing, because when you drive around town or even just slightly put your food down nothing happens, however when you floor it and the turbo kicks in it vibrates/judders and then passes over 2500rpm. You feel it everywhere it seems, but nowhere is more pronounced then anywhere else (if that makes sense).

I'll take a look at the strut as you mention, I thought it might be the drive belt pulley as this has never been changed. Might order one up anyway, I saw someone had the Continental Kit belt and pulley for £15, I believe it's not a hard thing to change. Only other thing is the engine mounts I thought.
