Hiya,
Its a weird problem thats quite random. When i step on the accelarator sometimes, the gear drops but i can feel a jerk/thud when this happens and then the car speeds up again.

Its quite random but im not sure if its normal for this to happen.

One situation for example - Reducing speed from 40 - 30 and then stepping on the gas again to quickly speed up, i get a thud/jerk in the car before it starts picking up speed.

its abt 45000 miles on the clock and serviced 5000 miles ago.

The problem is sporadic and only in the recent past.

Your thoughts pls

Thanks
Saleem
