    Smile Problem fixed !

    Just to update everyone, finally got the EGR soliniod valve 2 1/2 weeks later and got it replaced, touch wood it seems to have solved the problem, the car has not lost power in the last few days and we have been putting it thru its paces to see how it goes. It looks like they got it right in the end!!

    Exclamation Diesel Shudder

    I dont know if this is the same problem as others have posted about.
    I have a UK spec dodge caliber crd.
    Now and again when i am driving around town or on the motorway,Once the car has started warming up,after 5-10mins (45c) and accelerating past 30mph the car starts to shudder and does this all the way upto 70mph
    This has happened on a few occasions maybe a day after filling up.
    I dont use bio-diesel or crappy petrol stations when filling up,I always use BP.
    I dont get any dash warning lights,ive turned car off,let it sit for 5 mins and then carried on with my journey and the fault is still there.
    I would of thought it would of reset itself after turning car off and letting it rest.

    Those of you with better knowledge than me,Do you think this is the same issue as the posted bulletin from Prop1

    Could be one of the TSBs, or could could be like one of the members posted that it was his EGR that was bad.
