Hi every body. A question to owners of 100 series Landcruisers. I have a manual 2002 diesel GXL, the clutch gets very jittery at starting of, Toyota says there is a problem, fixed it, then declined saying it was out of warranty after 12 months when the problem arose again Has any body had similar problems

Sounds a bit like 'hot spots' on the flywheel. If when they 'fixed' it they only replaced the clutch plate and did not machine the face of the flywheel, the problem would re-surface reasonably quickly. Just a posibility..

The Toyota clutch judder is well known, both in the 80 and 100series. They will mumble something about hot spots and machining but to my knowledge there doesn't seem to be any real fix. It is a PITA when the clutch is cold, and isn't too bad after that.

Mine did it. They all do it. They'll do it again after you've had it "fixed". No long term solution. Save yer money and live with it, Grummo.

Grummo,
Have owned/driven quite a few auto's off road and given the choice, do prefer them to manual trans. The converter certainly helps mask any inadequacies of turboed engines bfore the huffer starts doing its thing.
Certainly doesn't help your quandary at the moment, tho.
Pity with so many vehicles these days, newer ain't necessarily better.

All the best, Bruce H.

Hi grummo. Yes mine 100 series has the same problem as yours. It shudders when taking off first thing in the mornings..As it warms ups it goes away. I'll fix it only when it get's worst or starts to slip under load..
cheers....

Ditto.

Shudders sometimes first thing in the morning but only once or twice and then never does it again.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Normal for a 100s, mine`s the same first thing in the morning gets a bit better when it warms up, Can be a PITA trying to reverse a car trailer up hill. I have driven brand new 100s(ie still wraped in plastic) that do this straight from the factory.

had a 80 series for 15 yrs and sold it recently with nearly 340,000 on the clock with the same clutch in it that hadent started slipping yet to buy a 100 series with 32,000 on the clock with a bouncing clutch that i feel will be changing before it even gets close to 100,000,heard its something to do with the composition of the pad material ,stuff all grip until it heats up a bit,has anybody put a different brand of clutch in

Thanks to all the replies, looks like i'll just have to grin and bear the shudder, the only thing that helps a little is if the revs are about 1200 rpms plus, it doesn't shudder as much, but some mornings when you are in a bit of a hurry you forget a little. Thanks again
