Hey guys just a quick question hopefully someone can help. My 5 spd vt it very jerky when taking off in first gear. Most noticebaly when just taking off easily and in busy traffic it takes alot of care to drive the car smoothly. And its not cause im letting clutch out to agressively or anything, its after the clutch is all way out and you just slowly accelerate.
I was just recently reading about axle tramping but im sure it wouldnt be that, its only a v6 with cam and exhaust :s
Appreciate any help, thanks

Have a look at the condition of your rear engine mount to make sure it is not split or the bolts have come loose. Check the rear cross member bolts to see of they are loose .Also check your universal joints to see if they are worn.

I'm having the same issue with my converted manual. Put it down to a shot dual mass flywheel.

i had something like that once...turned out to be a clogged up fuel filter and worn spark plugs.
