Hi I was wondering if anyone can help I just recently had the clutch replaced in my 80 series Turbo
Diesel cruiser, and there's still a slight shudder, particularly noticable when taking off on an incline.
Ahy Ideas on the problem.

Thanks, Tony

Tony, I have the same vehicle (YoM 1993) which, since I bought it in 1995 at 80,000km, has always had a shudder first thing in the morning. Mine is worst on a cold morning especially when I take off with low engine revs. If i'm not careful, the shudder can be quite violent - not lilke your "slight" shudder. My solution has been to de-clutch momentarily and re-engage more slowly using more revs. This has never failed to prevent the sudderring. I don't know for sure but am relatively satisfied it is caused by condensation on the flywheel which causes it to grab the clutch plate. Relative to a car (i) the TD takes off with very low engine revs, and (ii) a 4WD has a large amount of backlash in the drive train. Both of these things exacerbate the shuddering relative to what you might experience in a car with the same problem. My problem seems to go away once the engine warms up. Nonetheless, I'm interested in what others might say in answer to your question. Regards, Gordon.

Hi, I have a 1999, HZJ105, basically a poverty pack Diesel model which also shudders badly when cold. It has done 120,000kms of which I have only had it for the last 6000km so am not sure how long it has been doing it for. I read somewhere else that it is quite common, although more in the 100 than the 80 series. When warm the shudder completely disappears.

tony,
i have a 60 series landcruiser turbo diesel that does the same when cold,but goes away when hot.i find the easiest way to stop it from shuddering is to put in 4th gear and momentarely slip the clutch.

guys it may help to use a few more revs and a faster engagement as you all have diesels so are producing a large amount of torque at idle.The clutch may be slipping and getting a secondary engagement hence the shudder.tojos have always had a slight shudder from standing start which can be fixed by heavier spings in the pressure plate . Check your mags to find out who does these clutches.
