Hi Gavins,


Worth changing gearbox fluid. is the shudder constant still? When was the last wheel alignment done?

I had a shudder caused by the tie end rods once they were replaced it stopped.

Gavins, my shuddering issue was caused by a extremely dirty MAF sensor.  problem prevalent especially in hilly situations.  CEL would turn on most times though.   I thought it might have been a bad CVT, and did a drain and fill of the fluid. ANSEL JP700 code reader gave fuel system related warning (i have a long post on this forum).


replaced MAF and issue went away.
