Mine was working fine till I swapped it out for a STAR III. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif The STAR III has a little chatter or maybe a little grabbyness at low rpm in first gear. Run the rpm up some and no problems. My stock clutch had 4100 mi on it, looks like new and was smooth.
Good luck the dealer should make it right after they make a bunch of excuses./phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif
I think you'll find this condition on all manuals, if too much clutch pedal is let out and not enough gas is given (I have). I would be intested to know the mechanics of what is happening when this occurs and any long term effects. C4C4spec or anyone else?
Hi there all,
The particular way that the clutch is designed, and the fact that sometimes in storage, there may be traces of film that may cause this.
Remember that a clutch plate is not fully seated until between 5-7k, so it may take this long for the clutch to stop doing that, if it is still there after this time, then you may have to see how bad it is.
If it is just when leaving in first, I would agree that this is normal, if not, and it is happening in all gears, there is an issue, and should be adressed.
Best to all, c4c5
According to Chevy and the majority of the posters to this topic, a shudder in first is "normal". If yours doesn't have a shudder you appear to be more fortunate than the rest of us. Congratulations.
Man, I'm pissed about my brakes. My car was in at the dealer last week (all freakin week too) getting the "differential side plate" replaced. So, when I took it in I complained that the brakes were warped.
I get it back, the car is really freakin dirty, there are paw prints all over it (i hate cats sleeping on my car - they scratch the paint with their claws), it fucking smells like cat piss inside, and THEY DIDNT EVEN FIX THE BRAKES.
"We couldn't feel any pulsing". I pulled the wheels when I got it home to torque everything properly, cuz those monkeys don't know how to put wheels on (not to mention 4 of my rear lugnuts were galled), and the rotors all had .005" run out.
