If your car is in any gear 1+ releasing the clutch takes load off of the engine. Causing it to idle higher, where it normally would. So if you think its odd, its normal for a manual to do that.

What would it be difficult to shift into first gear?

a) Check gear oil level/condition. b) or you have a worn synchronizer. Verify that your clutch linkage is adjusted, if this is a cable linkage vehicle. Hydraulic units are not suppose to be adjustable. Your difficulty with getting the vehicle into first gear could be a result of the throw-out fork not fully releasing the clutch disk; hence the above suggestion to verify that the clutch mechanism is adjusted properly for full travel of the throw-out fork.

Why does my car shudder when going from first to second gear?

It's possible that you have a problem with your clutch. Alternatively, you may simply be releasing the clutch too early or too suddenly when changing gear, not giving the various cogs sufficient time to 'mesh' properly. First gear is a powerful gear, and requires more care when changing up from (or down to) than most others. Fully depress the clutch and lay off the revs when changing to second gear, and try to effect a slower, more gradual release when taking your foot off the clutch. As an added precaution, try to change up to second gear at lower speeds.

Why does the front end of your car shake while accelerating in first gear?

If it is a manual transmission I would suspect you have clutch problems. Possibly gear lube or hydraulic clutch fluid has leaked onto the clutch surface. The only repair is to replace the clutch and repair the leak. When you let the clutch out this causes the clutch to chatter thus causing the shaking.

What would cause a suzuki 600 to die when you put it in gear?

I am assuming you mean the Suzuki GSXR600 motorcycle. ANY motorcycle whose engine dies when you engage first gear MOST PROBABLY has a CLUTCH problem. Have the clutch tightened. To check whether the clutch is CLEARING the gear, do the following: 1. With the engine turned off, hold the clutch and put the motorcycle in first gear. 2. While holding the clutch, push the motorbike forward. If the rear tire allows the motorcycle to move forward, the clutch is engaging properly and clearing the gear. If the motorcycle won't budge with the clutch engaged, the clutch is not engaging properly. If the clutch has been tightened and is too hard to engage, you might want to have a mechanic open the motorcycle and check the clutch discs- they might be worn out.

What is wrong when the clutch won't go into gear?

A clutch does not go into gear. A clutch engages, Normally if a clutch fails to engage it is because it is worn. with a worn out clutch you are able to start the car in gear without your foot on the clutch and the car wont move. Normally before this happens you will notice what is known as a slipping clutch. A slipping clutch means that the engine is turning faster than it should to keep the car moving while in gear. once this starts to happen it does not take long for the whole show to come to a stand still.
