Recently purchased my second cruiser, a 98 100 series diesel. The vehicle has 170k on the clock and is in excellent condition but has a real anoying shudder upon take off. I drove a mates 100 that had exactly the same and he rekons its the norm.

Anyone else have the same????

Yeah.

It is to remind you of the driving style necessary for a 1HZ ... slow and steady that is.

Ciao for now
Andrew who still was shuddering this morning - coldest Adelaide morning in 17 years!

Stop complaining Andrew. you only had +1.5 in Hadelaide We're expecting -5 AGAIN tonight in the Riverland for the third night in a row. Looks like the Citrus crop may be Cactus this year. Glad I'm not a grower any more.

PS The clutch shudder seems the norm for the first take off. Take it really easy and you won't notice it.

Yes a little clutch shudder is the norm on the 100 series although it can be minimised with careful application. It's usually only when it's cold first thing & not something that seems to get worse or is detrimental to the drive train in any way. Many have taken them in under warrenty & had new clutch & preasure plates fitted but it never seems to last very long before it does it again.

Gee a shuddering clutch in a Landcruiser.
Next thing you'll be saying that your gearbox has thrown the towel in, or maybe one of the diffs.

Sorry just a tongue in cheek reply to the moronic posts about Toyotas being better than Nissan and vica versa

Cheers

normal for a 100 s some do it from new, you learn to drive around it, Its a bugger when you go to sell it and every first time 100s driver comes back from a test drive and tells you the clutch is on the way out.

Yup - it's normal.

My 105 does it when it is cold. It goes away after about 3km's or so.

Definitely a common problem. However, my clutch finally gave up (suddenly started slipping) at around 190k. Replaced with a Daikin unit rather than genuine and no more shuddering!
