A bit jerky on part throttle

Post by steveclv »

I just took my 'new to me' 2009 2.0 HDi FAP AutoTourer for its maiden drive and noticed that at low speed when driving in traffic on very slight throttle that there is a jerkiness/hesitancy. I've had this on petrol cars and cleaned the throttle body to help - but this is my first diesel.
Is this normal for the car or is there something that I can do to improve it?
