    I am experiencing a weird shudder on acceleration from 60 up to about 80kph and then it seems to disappear at further speed.I found the transferbox oil burnt and a change seemed to improve it for awhile.
    Any ideas on a possible cause?

    Is it as you pass a petrol station? :D

    Is it an auto?

    Is your hand brake not disengaged properly?

    Brakes binding?

    Go over to Disco3.co.uk, many people with the same isues

    Autobox oil gets contaminated with Glycol (Anti-freeze) and causes autobox judder
