: Hi folks,

: For the second time in the year I've owned this car ('91 535i), it's begun acting up in stop and go conditions.

: Trying to get rolling in first gear, engaging the clutch produces fairly severe juddering, making the entire car shake. Taking the revs up over 2000 helps a little but it sure feels like it wants to come apart.

: After resuming normal, smooth traffic conditions, the problem goes away by itself. I don't do much stop and go so I can't determine how frequently this would occur.

Have the same problem with my wife's 316i. problem has disappeared for about 85% after changing an engine supporting rubberpad. The juddering sometimes is still there very lightly but I presume that this is caused by the clutch disk which will have been slightly damaged.
It helps to rev the car a bit higher when engaging.
