Hi all just like to say hi,

Hi and welcome Ash,

Does your car idle ok? Or does it run a bit rough and cut out sometimes? Sounds like it could possibly be the crank sensor, quite common on the 2.2dti, either that or check your vac pipes, theres a few posts in the 2.2 diesel section that show how to do it.
Also would be a good idea to fill in your profile so we know exactly which car you have.

Welcome to the forum. If you have the 2.2dti then if you don't have the rev's high enough when you pop the clutch they do tend to pulse a bit as you say. You must realise you are trying to shift nearly 2ton of truck on big tyres from rest. I had to change my driving style because i had come from a 2.0 petrol. Hope this helps fella! :wink:
