Slight shudder when moving off....?

4 posts in this topic

Hey there....

 

I am a newbie to owning Smart's.... is it normal to have a momentary shudder when first moving off from a stop...?

Its absolutely fine otherwise.... just wondered if this is normal...or something to be aware of....

 

2006 cdi

It's common but not normal. Best to service and adjust the clutch actuator.

Mine shudders lightly until the clutch fully engages. As I've been driving it it's been getting better, so most likely I have a bit of oil on the clutch disc.

 

If the engine is staying at a constant rpm during the shuddering, the actuator is probably good but servicing it certainly doesn't hurt.
