In Reply to: Heavy Jerking in 1st Gear.... Clutch or Shifter? posted by [email protected] on June 22, 2000 at 00:24:33:
: I've experienced this 3 times now in about a year. I
: have an ACS short shifter. I would shift into first
: and then gas the car, not that hard but harder than
: 'easy' driving. The car would jerk like the brake is
: being applied , unapplied , applied again , etc....
: this make for a jerking head movement that isn't too
: pleasing. I don't hear any grinding so I don't think
: it's the gears, the shifter (i think) would be engaged
: and I don't hear anything unusal. Clutch feels fine...
: If I got this 'problem', I'd just clutch and shift into
: second and it'll be fine.... I do remember the first
: and this third time that I was shifting while turning,
: whether that makes a difference or not, doesn't make
: Any ideas?
