    1500 rpm judder

    my car also had the oil changed used genuine zf sump and zf life correct oil and was filled at correct temperatures still have the fault on a steady speed when i touch the pedal it just feels flat and dead when you get the revs above 3k it goes off or if i keep it in sport to keep revs up

    dead spots while accelerating

    i saw on another thread some were they were saying that the flat spot can be caused by removing swirl flaps as there was a guy on another forum who has two cars one with swirl flaps removed and one without the one that had swirl flaps removed has a flat spot how many of you dont have swirl flaps and have removed them? there was another guy who brought a brand new inlet manifold with newer 33m flaps this cured his power problem

    i have done a full gearbox service before the flat spot is still there mine is a auto too i def think its the torque converter because i cant think anything else causing it can leaving the maf unplugged cause issues if it resolves the flat spot for certain people

    dead spots while accelerating

    are most of your cars auto i been told by a garage this can be caused by the torque converter slipping as my revs slightly bounce on a ready motor speed and when i touch the pedal there isnt much power as soon as the needle goes over 2k revs it picks up
