    Droning noise, shudder under part load, visible reduction in coolant level. A quick search of the forum will reveal more. Fingers crossed you're clear.

    Yes hopefully, mine seems to jump or jolt at 20mph and 30mph I would also say a droining noise at low revs up to 2000rpm.

    To be honest Gaz, that doesn't sound good. Best get a glycol test done.

    Yeah will do, it does not do it all time sometimes if I am lighter when accelerating. Maybe faulty torque converter??

    First thing to do is establish which type of rad. you have. Valeo or Behr & take it from there. Lots of information in these threads.
