Hi
Has anyone had this?
Mainly felt at 5th feels like torque converter or balance but caused by injectors.
We tried with new injectors and vibration was nearly gone,engine had almost no hum with new ones.
If you have unsolved vibration issues check injectors.

Hi I actually have felt this in my 2006 supercharged HSE. Did you find that this was occurring slightly under load ? As almost to say the engine was "lugging" as you may find when driving a vehicle with a manual transmission up a hill in too high a gear? It presents as an overall shudder until the throttle is further depressed ?
Thanks for your clarification...

The injector problem (that I had too) occurs only in a diesel, so you have a different problem.

Thanks Adara ... yah im not 100% as to what it might be but definitely feels exactly like too high a gear has been selected for a hill when driving a manual trans. From discussion outside the forum someone suggested torque converter lock up. Feels like lazy shift points or the trans is wanting to hold the gear its in for too long. Have you heard anything to this effect or come across this in any other forum reading ?

regards

In my case I was so persuaded the box was to blame I even changed the fluid and filter, but when I contacted an engine box specialist he said these symptoms come from insufficient fuelling at low rpm so I would check fuel pump, fuel filter (if fitted) and, why not, air filter…

Had exactly this problem on my 2006 Td6. Injector (one) and harness both replaced and some improvement, but not a cure. On a motorway in France, suddenly failed to pull at any revs and emitted clouds of black smoke. Local French garage couldn't do anything, so took to French main dealer. No fault codes, injectors OK. Tested other things and can't find the problem. At the moment my car is on a trailer somewhere between southern France and East Anglia. Been three weeks so far with no end in sight. :( :(

Update : After three weeks the Rangey is now at my local main dealer. They can find no faults and have no idea what the problem is. I am becoming quite used to the hired Fiesta I am using meanwhile. Not as fast, comfortable nor spacious, but the best I can do for now :doh:
