    I have this problem for a while now, but I am just wondering if anyone else has this.

    When I disengage the first to shift to second there is this rough feeling and sound that comes with it. Only way to avoid it is to keep the gas pedal pushed slightly for about half a second.

    Is there a known fix for that? Or is it just a flaw?

    are you sure you're depressing the clutch 100%?

    Make sure you're pushing the clutch.

    Also might wanna switch over to synthetic tranny fluid. I'm running 75W-90 Mobil 1 in mine and I noticed it's a little smoother compared to Dino oil.

    I'm sorry, I wasn't specific enough.

    What I mean is when I press the clutch to switch gears in first, it does the jerk and sound. From first to neutral is what I mean. Moving the gear is all fine, it is just when I press the clutch.

    After the jerk I put neutral with no trouble. Hope I explained it better.

    That is "normal" for the 6 speed. Wait until you experience the clutch lag during first start up when it's cold. Not to mention the pedal squeak when it's hot out.

    It's got 50 000km. I know most of the caprices of the clutch. I just wanted to see how normal the thing I mentioned was.

    So I'll just keep doing my thing for the first that makes it smooth then. No biggie.
