uphill judders

Sun Dec 02, 2018 1:31 am

After my car has warmed up it occasionally judders while going uphill.

Also the rev counters bounces around about the 40-50mph speed.

What could be causing this?

My money would be on the TC. Check the gb oil level and temperature.

Make sure you or whoever is doing it use the correct procedures and the oil is at the right temperature

When i had a similar problem on my 320d i confirmed it by using some of this.
The box was very smooth after adding it so i went ahead and had the torque converter changed.
