Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi all,

I am a nightmare when it comes to cars but hopefull
someone can help me.
Au bought 2003 X type from a friend and a month
later started having. Problems. The main problem
was when the car is in drive and I have yet to put
my foot on the gas then I am getting a serious
jerking and shuddering from the vehicle. This is also
the case when I put he car into reverse, if I don't put
gas on the car car is jerking like there is no
tomorrow..
Not within the past week, when the car is idle but
switched on, I am observing a flicker of the dash
board and head lights.....
All helpnis very much appreciated b fore I start
throwing money at the car...

Chris
