Ford Mondeo III (2000 - 2007) - 02 2.0 diesel tdci juddering

hi , can anyone help. my 2002 mondeo 2.0l lx tdci has started to judder. mainly in fourht and fith gear. i have changed the fuel filter as i though that may be the problem since it hasnt been changed for ages but the problem still goes on. starts fine runs ok in slow speeds but uphill it splutters a little and the acceleration seems to be poor. no warning lights are coming on. recently i had to refit my back box with a clamp as it fell off wondering if this is causing problem.

I don't understand cars at all so you will have probably have checked this but...

My 2.2 TDCI ST Mondeo was doing the same.. The garage thought it was a valve and on these pages that also seemed to be cropping up.

It turns out it was a tear in the Turbo pipe .. No juddering, all power has returned - Back to it's nomal self.

£150 fitted. Much cheaper that the valve.
