    Astra 1.4i Problem - Car 'Judders' during low revs..

    Hi, I'm new here.

    I have a Vauxhall Astra 1.4i N Reg. 55K miles. Regularly serviced etc.

    Recently I have noticed that the car sometimes 'judders' / 'hiccups' during low revs.. for example if im in 2nd year and start slowing down.. the car may 'jump' forward abit soundin almost as though it will stall.

    I know that if i drop too low it obviously will stall, but the revs are not *that* low.. maybe 1.5K. The problem is most noticeable in 1st and 2nd gears.

    I don't know much about cars (i'm only 18 and this is my 1st car!) but i hope this isn't serious.. i have been revvin the car abit here and there and i hope i haven't done any damage.. perhaps the problem is just a blocked pipe? i have no idea

    Any help is much apprecaited!

    Welcome to the forums!!

    My mother has a 1.4 i single point corsa which suffered from the same prob. Was very annoying, the first thing i done was give the car a good service and changed the plugs and leads most importantly!!!!!

    She had no probs after that.

    Hope that helps

    astra mk4 sport
    ne this sounds like me gen



    m8 the 1.4i astras r crap ive got one beleve me u will be kicking it soon

    i think u will notice the car has flat spots when accelerating from bout 1500rpm to 3000rpm


    other than that check ur fuel filter and also get some fuel line cleaner should solve the prob for a bit

    Shouldnt really b doing this, i agree the 1.4 astra are a heap of S*H*I*T but usually are realible and dont drive badly there are just lacking any power!!

    I would recomend a full service inc the plugs most importantly,

    I dont think its anything to do with the fuel lines as you would suffer from this problem in all level of revs and not just low revs.

    Hope thats of help
