Shuddering problem.

Hey all, tonight while i was driving, i noticed something was wrong with the car. I got a 97 EL falcon, transmission was recoed about 20,000 kms ago.

Well when taking off with half throttle the car seemed to judder for about the first 5 metres. When using about quater throttle it didnt do it.

It was from a complete standstill tho, if i was doing 10km/h it wouldnt do it.

But the problem seemed to stop after about doing it 10 times.

Also another problem!! standing outside of the car, there seemed to be a faint farting type noise from the middle of the car. Could this be the exhuast?

thanks

snavy,

Have you taken it back to the automatic place since getting the reco? Most do a drain and refill/adjustment a week later after bedding it in. Sometimes there is gunk around the place and they flush to remove it, also getting rid of any air in the torque convert etc...

shuddering is either the trans or engine mounts. I'd say it's a converter issue.
Take it back.
BTW if that's if it's an auto.
If it's a 5sp then your pressure plate springs maybe worn out.

the "farting" noise from the middle for your car is probably a hole in your exhaust or a cracked muffler, take it to muffler place and get it checked out, this happend to me once and my muffler was cracked and the car was farting on idle. lol

ummm on the side of the motor...
sorry I'm a smart ass. Normally you can see if an engine mount is broken by reving the car from under the bonnet. Give it some sharp revs and see if it rocks forward at all. It is normal for it to rockk towards the driverside thats just the massive torque of you beast (very rare on holdens)
but if it rocks forward a bit then the mounts could be stuffed.
I'd say it is your box though because it's hard to notice engine mounts on an auto untill they brake and send the motor into the radiator. (Happened to me on my cortina when I decided to see how high the car would rev with it's new motor)
