shudder

  1. General E46 Forum
    Greetings from an E46 newbie.... I just bought a 2001 325Ci convertible and feel like I should have done my homework better cause I'm experiencing a sudden shudder that I didn't notice when test driving. Doh. Now I have a maddening shudder through the drivetrain for a split second when coasting...

    Bought a new e46 330i and having some shudder on the highway as well as a tiny bit of slop in my steering before it kicks in. Guy I bought it from said he had already replaced the FCABs and I don't have any shudder when breaking (any more than usual), so I was hoping to have it looked at by...

    If you are accelerating hard sometimes you get what feels like clutch chatter in a stick shift car while it shifts from first to second. It is a 2000 328i automatic. I was wondering if this could just be a shift solenoid or if this is a sign the tranny is starting to wear out. Thanks for your help.

    Hi everyone, so I have posted on here before about this problem, just kind of an update/more question deal. So to recap, after driving for a few hours my car (2001 330xi with 89k) would start to shudder under load, i.e. accelerating or trying to go up a hill, it was a gradual problem that would...
