engine judder

This is probably going to duplicate alot of the threads already but there seem to be so many different answers to a judder problem. I have a 04 reg punto and it occasionally judders when starting off from 1st gear and also occasionally when reversing. I have also noticed that it does a similar thing after a good old motorway run ie when slowing down on the slip roads. After a bit it sorts itself out and is fine...
Is this more likely to be a clutch problem or linked to head gaskets (which is not the answer i want!)... Thanks!

Re: engine judder

My Punto was juddering badly when engine heated up (motorway, city). Reasons were worn clutch disc and one of 6 bolts that hold pressure plate was missing.
