T31 X-Trail TL 2008 - Doesn't feel right
My TL was going great for the past 110,000km's until about two weeks ago when I was driving onto the motorway and speeding up to 100km/h and suddenly something let go and the car dropped power and felt like it had a blown tire.
So far I have done the following:
1, Changed boost sensor
2, Changed MAF sensor
3, 2 x Cans of diesel throttle body cleaner to clean out EGR
4, Oil change, Oil Filter change, Air Filter & new Provent install
5, Left and Right hand-side front inner CV's (correct x-trail shape)
6, Swapped AT tires for HT tires
7, Purchased a OBD2 scanner - no fault codes found
8, Took the car to a (board) recommended local mechanic in Brisbane but they had no idea.
After getting the new inner CV's replaced there was huge improvement but I can still feel a slight shudder under load at high way speed (eg overtaking on boost), I don't know if I'm being hyper-sensative but I feel like the drive line / transmission (manual) is harsher than normal and not as smooth as it should be - according to the workshop who did the CV's the owner thinks the car goes great, but I disagree.
