Lupo vibrating/shaking

Recommended Posts

Hi y'all

So my Lupo vibrates, although shakes would be a better word. It mainly does this when I start it and if I press the clutch.  The boot cover shakes and rattles like crazy!  Also, when I am braking at lights etc, and I press the clutch in the engine makes a brrr sound like it is revving up but the rev counter is dipping. Anyone know what is causing these issues, and if they are related? Also are they fixable without going to the garage.

TIA

Is it an SDI model?

Sounds like a misfire...? Not much power as well? Running on 3 not 4.

Basic 1.4 54 plate, not SDI.  2 new coils a while ago, was doing it before and after coil change. Power okay, can get up to 80-90 no probs, accel okay, maybe a little down on what I remember it being.

Could be a leaky valve? Need more symptoms description TBH.

Has the cam belt ever snapped or engine overheated in the past?

Does the engine warm up normally (quickly)?

Is the car used mainly on very short runs?

Cam belt - not while I have had it.

Warms up normally

Used for work and also to make local deliveries for a takeaway

Take a video of it doing what you mean, when you press the clutch etc.

Sounds ok! Ok, so it sounds like you have a dashboard rattle or something in the coin tray, but nothing bad....

TDI have a metal heat shield that can rattle with the gear change cables on it, not sure if the petrol lupos have that or not but that is what it sounds like.
