engine shaking when coming out of first

this problem only occurs when i'm in the city, doing lots of stop and go driving. at some point -- after the engine's fully warmed up -- i'll let the clutch out slowly in first and the whole engine and drivetrain seem to shake like mad. it doesn't keep shaking once i get it moving -- only when coming out of first.

is this an example of 'clutch shudder'? i have no idea what that is. and why does this happen only when the engine is warm? could it be the flywheel or something in the driveshaft (guibo)?

thanks,

Mike (73tii)

My first reaction is guibo

Only after repeated stop and go driving in the city, or highway gridlock. Shakes the hell out of the shifter, and the whole damn car. Not to mention it makes me look like a rookie driver!

I've got all new mounts, new guibo, and a new(used) driveshaft. The only component left is the clutch. I figure it is clutch chatter, but I'm not sure why. Rest of the time, the clutch is grand. I don't worry about it too much.

Usually chattering that occurs when the clutch is initially engaged is from contamination on the disc or flywheel or because the flywheel wasn't re-surfaced last time the clutch was replaced. The surface needs to be true with the proper "step" for the clutch to work properly.

If oil leaks from the rear mail seal or trans and gets on the flywheel it will cause those symptoms.

My Ford Tempo (getting rid of it once the M20's in) does the same thing, and the throwout bearing makes a bunch of noise. That is my guess about the cause.

My bearing is nice and quiet, and I've got no leaks anywhere, so therfore no contaminated clutch disc. It only does this after a couple dozen stop and go's in heavy traffic. I've seen it in a few other 02's as well. I'm not worried about it, as it's been this way for the 2 years I've owned it. No big deal.
