Question 2006 Manual Touring Ed

Hi,

When the clutch is fully engaged in 1st or 2nd there is shudder (stutter) when it's released. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your input

Hmm sounds like possible motor mount issues.

Mine does the same. My upper and lower torque struts (engine mounts) have a lot of free play, think I need to replace them. If you start the car and put the stick in neutral do you feel any vibration at all? My car had a slight shake and judder when sitting at traffic lights.

Get a tube of 3M windshield urethane, fill voids in upper and lower arms;
see if this 'cures' it.

Just read your other posts about using 3M on the engine mounts. Sounds a good fix. Would this stuff be similar to the 3M one you mentioned? (3M seems to be hard to come by in the UK).

I assume if it holds windshields it's the same idea-

Neon guys have used hot-glue, they say it works, but I've never tried it.

Both the 3m and Sika Flex are PolyU, so probably very much alike. As to the hot glue, it's not got the give of Poly, so if you use it you'll notice a lot of vibrations from the engine will be transferred to the cars body/frame. So you'll feel more with the hot glue.

Might give it a go as its much cheaper than 2 new mounts. They are the equivalent of $120 to buy here for both.

Ok I'm off to order some Sika Flex.

Do you recommend taking the engine mounts out to fill them or can you manage fine with them in place. I was just going to do the latter as they are easy enough to access.

Take them out-

You can use the oven (@ like just above ambient; warm) to cure them faster.
