I have a similar issue with the engine jolting sharply on transition from revs to idle. Kind of feels like its all or nothing. Also the engine judders on over-run. Im still on with getting to the bottom of it when i have few minutes spare. The speedo on mine will very rarely stop working but the above faults happen all the time.

I don't think yours will be caused by the vss, it's more likely to be an earth I think. Just do as I did and try chasing the earths around the engine bay, I got lucky finding that one as I have no idea where an of them are. Or if it's not an earth then I don't know what yours is, but I'm sure someone will know

Or could be engine mount? If you don't have any other electrical issues then I'd put a juddering down to engine/gearbox mount, again someone will correct me if I'm wrong

Although my earth in the pic is clearly broken I have still not proved yet that that is the cause of my problems so for yours Mike I wouldn't assume it's just that one earth, try searching for any others just in case.

If the rest of your instrument panel is working then it won't be an issue there. Is the cable from your vss ok?

Yeah I assume the vss sends its signal via cable to the ecu? So I'd check the plug and cable. So have you found your problem?

The (blue) plug that goes into the rear of the instrument panel does get loose over time and can cause similiar issues to what your having.

Easy enough to remove the instrument cluster and just check this plug for proper fitting. Only 4 x Torx screws and you can remove it. Yes

Mine won't be the plug on the instrument panel Stan, I've had that out a few times so know its back correct. Wouldn't that affect half the panel though?

It could do, but remember its a multi plug so therefore it could be that the plug is nearly home and some things are just about connected and a couple of pins aren't. It's unlikely, although worth checking. Also it could be that plug is clipped in properly but some of the pins have become electrically dirty over time and require the plug to be unplugged then plugged back in to clean them. Wink

Valid point Stan and I agree that could be the cause for a temperamental speedo, but surely that scenario would only affect the instruments, that shouldn't cause my other problems?

This is true, and in your particular case I believe its down to a dodgy Earth, most likely the one you found.

I know it's a long shot but it's now developed a hesitation for the first few minutes after startup, and is very sluggish, is it possible that these new issues could also be linked to that earth? I guess they will still be electrical related even if they are not?

The hesitation could be down to a lambda fault, or due to the fact it appears just after startup it could be the CTS has gone bad and is not supplying the engine with fuel enrichment.

Is it ok once warmed up?

Does indeed sound like its running too lean for those first few moments, and then when you ask for power, the engine isn't supplied with enough fuel to produce it.

Monitor it for the next 3 days and see if the problem gets any worse or not, then we can have a further think. Yes

If its only a problem from cold mate, the first place I would look is the CTS. They are fairly cheap too around £18 I think. Smile

Yes it is the Coolant Temp Sensor. It won't be affecting the speedo or ICV but you said you had hesitations from cold and I am wondering if the CTS is reading wrong and not giving the engine enough fuel enrichment when cold. Wink

The VSS is the Vehicle Speed Sensor, which is located at the rear of the gearbox near to the diff housing. Yes

It is the component which operates the speedometer. Smile
