Default Peugeot 207 CC GT Clutch / Judder issues

Hello all!

I have just bought a 2008 Peugeot 207 CC 1.6 GT (120) with 55'000 miles on the clock. The clutch needs repair / replacing as gears are slipping on acceleration which I knew when I bought it, but have had a quote for 330 to replace.

My only other question is that the car also judders for about 5 / 10 mins after start up from cold but once warmed up, the juddering stops. Oil pressure looks fine (the needle is in the middle of the dial) and there is no overheating. The exhaust doesnt appear to be blowing dirty either.

Any suggestions as to what could be causing this? I do also have the usual Pollutant fault as well, so could that be related?

I have put a request out on the Pergeut Planet thread to see if anyone near me can come do a diagnostic too

Many thanks for your help folks -the car is excellent nick and good mileage for the year otherwise, so I just want to get these issues sorted!

Hi there........330 to replace a clutch seems remarkably cheap, my 2008 207CC had a clutch replaced in Feb.2014 at a cost of 439 by A1 Clutches Birmingham. Also I think the oil pressure gauge your refering to is in fact an oil temperature gauge which was fitted to pre face-lift models to 2009.

Anyway here's hoping you sort you problems out, they are great fun to own when running right, then I'm probably biased.

Thanks for the reply...yes just seen it's the oil temperature. Absolutely love it so far but will be better once the clutch is sorted.

Any idea what could be causing the juddering when cold? Seems to be OK when warmed up. The engine light is on as well (I've had the polution warning too)
Thanks again!

Forgot to say, very impressed with the clutch quote from an independent garage near me, forgot to put VAT on it, so it's 400....still not bad though!

If it's clutch judder seems strange it's ok when warmed up.
Judder normally due to:
Clutch disc linings contaminated with oil.
Clutch disc linings excessively worn.
Distorted pressure plate.
Loose engine or gearbox mount.
Gearbox input shaft splines worn.

'Anti Pollution' warning is a general warning that something is wrong. There are so many threads in the forum's concerning this topic, I feel I have nothing useful to add.

That's fine about the Polution warning, I've seen it covered to death here. The juddering itself isn't when changing gear, feels more like it could be a misfire, but would a misfire sort itself once the engine has warmed up a bit? Sorry for my lack of knowledge, I know nothing about cars!

Get the plugs changed they may not have been done and worn plugs can give these symptoms when cold as can the HP fuel pump

That's great, I wondered whether it may be spark plugs. It has hit 55k mileage so it would make sense if they haven't been replaced. Hopefully it's as cheap and simple as that!

OK so I've just driven it about a mile and again stuttered. This time the fan kicked in and it finally stalled. I managed to restart it and limp it back home as it was just around the corner.
From what I can see, it wasn't overheating and had plenty of oil and coolant, so not sure if it could be the head gasket or not?

Any thoughts folks? Again any help gratefully appreciated!!!

Update - Checked the car again this morning which started first time,in but haven driven it obviously.
I've checked the oil and the coolant and both are fine, no loss at all. I've also checked the oil cap for any white substances but it's all clean, so it doesn't seem to be showing any traditional head gasket symptoms which was my first (panicked) thought. The car has never overheated either. Temperature gauges were as they should be despite the fan kicking in.

Again, any help is hugely appreciated!!
