    Most error codes relate to the motor. There is a speed sensor at each wheel and one in the tranny, but they are for the ESP (no codes stored).

    Catch 22 indeed

    The cheapest option would probably be to pull the clutch out. Welding it into a SMC should stop the shudder, if caused by the springs. While it is out, you can check about...

    Re: Renault Duster Problems

    The shudder must be due to the "auto" shifting manual as this doesn't occur in the straight manual. No one seems to like the "auto" (not ready for prime time?).

    Re: Cape Town's Diesel Smoke Detectors

    In the diesel motor, you have about 20% excess oxygen in the chamber. Most mappers will exploit this to the maximum resulting in over fuelling at times, such as when not under full load. There's...

    "heavy-duty diesel vehicles" is my understanding. That is, my tiny motor has never been pulled over for this reason.

    The other point seems to be they have to be belching "dark smoke".
