Does anyone with a new manual 3 litre think the gearchange is a bit lumpy from 1st to 2nd?
I also experience a clunk/rattle from the engine/gearbox when I depress the clutch at low speeds ie. in first gear rolling to a stop and depressing the clutch.
The same clunk only louder happened in traffic tonight. I was in first gear moving very slowly in a trafic jam I gave a little bit of throttle and then took my foot completely off of the gas and immediately got a clunk as the car went from acceleration to slowing down.
The car has only done 1000 miles and I know it wasn't present for the first 600.
Is it just loosening up? My 1.9 never did this.. is it to be expected with a bigger engine? am I getting paranoid? ...
It still doesn't stop me driving it every spare moment I get === vrrooom :-0
thanks for any advice
