On a car that age it should still be under warranty. Take it back to the dealers.

You have vastly cut the odds on getting it repaired under warranty by removing and testing yourself .Any such moves are grounds for rejecting warranty repairs if dealership sees signs of this .All depends on dealership .

You sure the juddering is a form of engine miss fire?
Do the revs drop to below idle speed?

Suggested Solution

The idle speed stays the same and there's no misfire when the fan comes on but the whole car judders.
