I'm still just as confused with all of these responses... Is it clutch springs? Tensioner pulley? A bad clutch?God dammit. My car just started doing this too - right at 60,100~ miles. Perfect timing.
Any idea what this is? I've read about 20 pages of this thread and there are so many conflicting answers I'm not sure what to believe or where to start.
Is is the tensioner pulley? Is it something to do with the clutch springs as some have mentioned? Hot spots? I'm not super familiar with diagnosing car issues and don't know enough to get into it myself so any help would be very much appreciated.
Only seems to happen sometimes in 1st (and occasionally, but more rarely in 2nd) as the clutch engages (as in, as I left my foot off the clutch).
I'm past the warranty on mine now, so I don't know what to do - if it's worth bringing in and getting it looked at, and potentially fixed, or just dealing with it for now. (I don't want to ignore it and potentially ruin something in doing so, though)
How have any of you without a warranty approached this issue? What did you do/what was the solution?
