Hi All, I bought a 2002 325i about a month and a half ago and I love
it. But early last week I started noticing something weird. I was
going down a off ramp and I put the car into 4th to downshift and when
I started letting the clutch out it seemed that when the actual clutch
started engaging the car shuddered for a moment until the clutch became
fully engaged. I thought it was weird so I tried it again in 3rd and
it did the same thing. I noticed the probalem all the way home. Then
when I got in it again about 4 hours later I wanted to see if I could
pin down what it was and when I tried downshifting again I couldnt get
it to do it again. I thought the problem went away. But this morning
when leaving a stop sign I felt it happen while starting out in first.
Has anyone experienced this cluctch shudder before? What was wrong?
Thanks a million - jon
