    Hello everyone,
    I have a 2013 Volvo VNL D13 Engine with I-Shift transmission. The transmission shifts gears with no problems but after every gear shift the truck jerks forward pretty hard. The jerking can be felt even when starting from standstill.

    What can it be?

    Mileage is about 750000 miles.
    What exactly needs to be done?

    Clutch testing with a Vcads Elite or any tech tool that can do it.
    It'll simulate clutch operation and report fault codes if any and approximate clutch wear.
    Done at the dealer might be expensive. If you can find a private shop you can trust go for it.
    They might do a better job than dealer.
    The actuator might be leaking. Get the test report and an estimate on parts and labor.
    If you have cash in the repairs account be ready to spend some money to get it fix.
    Or sell the truck and get something newer.
     
    spsauerland Thanks this.

    Yes I did. I needed to sit down and breath slowly.
