Hi all just got my full membership and its my first post in the forum, i have looked through this section but cant really find the information im after.

To start with I have a 57 plate PB st3 with 8500 miles on the clock.

I have two problems that i need some help with.

The first is when i start the car up from cold the revs are higher (around 1200 RPM) now i know this is normal as its to do with the choke but about 10 seconds before the revs drop back down to normal i get a vibrating noise. I cant tell where its coming from on the car but you can hear it from inside and outside the car and when the revs drop back down then it goes away and this is the only time i can hear it. Im thinking it might be the heatshield on the exhaust but its weird how it only does it for ten seconds or so whilst the choke is out.

The second is when iam driving in traffic in second gear some times third gear with very light pressure on the throttle doing between 20-25 MPH it fells like the car is shuddering (not violently just slightly) then when i get up to normal speed its fine. Again it only does it sometimes even when the engine is warm and it doesnt matter if its been driven hard or just normal.

I would just like some feeback before i take it to the garage (if i need to)

Thanks in advance.

You'll often find that Gary will be able to tell you what the problem is a lot easier than a lot of Ford dealers - if it is a warranty issue you'll then be able to 'guide' the dealer towards what the problem is rather than going down the route of 'we plugged it into our machine and it's not showing a fault.....' ect
