      I have a Volkswagen Golf GT TDI 2002. Unfortunately, I don’t know much about cars so excuse my ignorance. When I start my car, the car feels like it is shaking? There are no strange noises nor have I experienced any issues recently. This is intermittent and happened every now and then. I was not sure if this was normal behaviour of a diesel car or if there is something more sinister going on? The car is due a service but other than that I have read about possible DMF faults? Could it be that the car just needs a service or does this sound like something more? If it does sound like the DMF how much am I looking at to get this sorted? I’ve only just had the cam belt changed at 82,000 miles arrrrgghhh.

      Any help is much appreciated

      Is the juddering only when the engine is started from cold?
      If so this would point more to a fuel issue more than a DMF problem.
