If the problem is only happens when you take off then I would think it is clutch related; Oil on a clutch will cause it to grab,chatter etc. Also, if the clutch has a lot of miles on it, it may be just worn out.If this jerking happens as you drive the vehicle during acceleration , then your vehicle has some tune-up issues such as spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap,rotor.

Why does your manual transmission car jerk when you change gears?

cuz your application of clutch and gas is out of proportion. Either your letting your clutch out to fast or your applying to much gas which causes your engine revs to dictate a higher speed than your car is traveling when you let out your clutch, thus causing your to jerk. you just need to practice more and pay attention to how fast your releasing your clutch and how much gas your giving it as you switch gears. sometimes reeving the engine a little higher before shifting can help too. Just be careful that you don't let the clutch out too slowly because doing so repetitively can damage the clutch and cause premature failure. If your really new at driving stick try asking someone you know that is good at shifting to show you how and pay attention to when they shift and how much gas they give it as they shift. Good luck

How do you drive a 5 speed manual transmission?

With an automatic transmission there are clutches that operate automatically according to hydraulic pressure. In a manual transmission you have to use the clutch which is the middle pedal of the pedal assembly. What you do is hold in the clutch and slip in into first gear, then while giving it a little gas slowly let out the clutch. This will engage first gear and you are moving slowly. When the engine speed has gotten high enough to shift into the 2nd gear you do the same thing. Let off the gas. Push in the clutch. Shift into the next higher gear 2 and let out the clutch. You don't have to let it out slowly as you did in first gear. In first gear you do this so the engine won't stall. In the next gears 2-5 you push in the clutch, change to the next higher gear and let the clutch out.

Why does your clutch not judder all the time?

I think I know what you are talking about, when you let out your clutch the car shudders as it engages. This isn't normal, and is probably due to glazing of the clutch disk, this will form a varnish on the disk and when you engage the clutch it will grab and release the flywheel quickly before it engages completely giving you that shudder. The reason it doesn't do it all the time when starting from a stop is because your engine rpm is a bit higher than usual and it has a smoother transition, the quicker engine rpm prevents the grab and release, it should almost never happen when you are moving because when the rpm of the engine and transmission are closely matched the catch will be instant, no need to let the clutch out slowly when you are already moving. You can sometimes remove the varnish causing you trouble by bringing your rpm's up a little higher than usual and letting the clutch out very slowly, this can burn the varnish off and leave a fresh surface, it doesn't always work, but I have had good luck with it.
