shifting

does anyone know why when I shift from first to second gear it feels like my car drops into second like a little buck idk wat it could be I've tried shifting slower coming off the clutch like a sloth and it still bucks 95% of the time..

Re: shifting

Dont know for sure but it seems to do it more as my car ages so I was just thinking that maybe its clutch disk wear. I think the stock clutch sucks as Ive been through 2 clutches in my last three Stangs, despite never burning one in another car and driving stick exclusively for 25 years.

My car is clunky unless I am really, really deliberate with my shifting. I wouldn't classify it as a "buck" though. Sometimes a little studder. Nothing that bugs me. Car seems to take it well, and it smooths out a bit as the tranny warms up.

It sounds like yours is more pronounced than normal. If you slip the clutch a bit can you eliminate the buck? Not that you should have to, but i'm curious.

Re: shifting

hey guys,
also sim prob here... a couple ideas-

1. have you drained and refilled tranny yet? this could help, and b4 going synthetic check with someone! i called tremec on my t-3650; guy there was very helpful, and said they only recommend mobil1 synthetic ATF, period.
2. along lines of above, if u do have 3650 be sure to fill to correct level; conflicting reports on how much recommended (manual does say 3.7 liters). some say fill till starts to spill from fill (with car LEVEL), others 1/2" below.
3. have you considered replacing clutch cable???
4. and how about new s-t shifter?!

Re: shifting

My car does "buck" a little unless I am deliberate in shifting, like Agent. However mine also bucks coming off the throttle fast. It's the pilot bearing allowing a little bit of play in the clutch's engagement. Might be something for you to consider. Did you replace it when you replaced the clutch?

The pilot bearing being worn will cause that "bucking" and "jolting" motion when you get on and come off the throttle. Also a little when you go into gear, but once engaged with clean steady throttle it will be smooth again.

I replaced fork,clutch disk,pressure plate,TOB,pilot bearing,cable,flywheel, and the quadrant and I still have this happen. I believe it's just a mustang thing.

My Mach does this and gets better when warmed up as you have mentioned. I'm wondering if it's the TR3650 trannys cause my '92 fox GT did not do this. I believe it was a T5. TR3650 was middle of 2001 till the Mustangs started using T56 I think.

Mine does it too I have a 02 GT with the TR3650 and I had a 01 with the T45 and it wasn't as bad but on certain occasions it did it.
