    Don't know if someone can help on this, but this is becoming more and more often now, when the car starts to move/drive off, there is a lot of vibrations on the front esp if I release the clutch quickly...same in 2nd, 3rd...

    any ideas? Thanks

    what are the signs when the clutch is on the way out?

    btw, if I press the throttle more and then slowly release the clutch, it doesn't happen...seems to be near the wheels. or under the engine bay

    I even thought it was wheel alignment/balance;had it all checked.
