question on cold take off

What's up guys/gals,

Quick question. I have noticed that some mornings/first start of the day my car will have a jerking feeling in first gear and sometimes second. It feels as if the clutch is going in and out. This mainly happens if i try to accelerate hard. It's only the first few 100 yards then it's normal and good to go.
Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

I get this same thing. Normally it acts like this for the first mile or so, but then it evens out and acts perfectly fine. I guess the transmission needs to warm up?

I've noticed that as well. I just slip the clutch a bit, shift to 2nd & go. It's really only when I'm leaving the neighborhood, once I'm on the street it's all good. It is like the clutch is cold & grabby, causing the manual noob hobby-horsing.

You shouldn't be hammering on the car when the engine is cold. Over time this can cause damage. You shouldn't let it idle excessively when cold either. Just start it up and keep it under half throttle and 4000 rpm at least until the coolant starts to come up to temp.

That said, mine is a little herky jerky sometimes when cold at parking lot speeds. Doing some ~40mph cruising in fifth and sixth gear (1000-2000 rpm) seemed to help by giving the computer more time in that range to get the long term fuel trims sorted.

No leaks man. I did the reset the guys were taking about. We'll see how that works out.

Mine does it when its cold outside, all the time in the winter time but if I let her warm up for about 3 minutes she bogs then back to normal, if I take off before that she'll bog where ever im at, about after those 3 minutes. I dont know if that's the same deal with you but I hope this helps out to any point.

Re: question on cold take off

I get this also and these cars are cold blooded pigs, mine runs like crap until it warms up completely, then she purres like a kitty, the harder you pound her the better she runs, but she needs lots of foreplay...lol
