    Mine judders when it has been damp outside but eventually disappears as the moisture evaporates off but slipping I'm not entirely sure about.

    We have a Transit van at work that slip occasionally. Garage put it down to a lazy slave or master cylinder. But as we are parting with it shortly we're not having it repaired.

    Worth checking the hydraulics on it.

    Mine first showed signs of slipping 5 years ago when my Dad had it but only when really provoked and on hill starts etc.... finally had to get it done this xmas after i had put a good 30,000 miles on it lol but that was more because the dual mass flywheel was making some very odd noises on idle..... maybe the crankshaft oil seal has let a little oil in that has since burnt away ?
