About six months ago I had the clutch replaced in my truck. I noticed this problem then, but when I took it back to the repair shop I was told they didn't notice what I was saying. Then three weeks ago it went out again. Now, as before. It stutters as I take off either in first or reverse. Sort of a jumpy take off. It didn't do this before the clutch went out the first time. I've never driven a hydrolic clutch before, but I can't even fathom that that has anything to do with it unless it's a problem with the hydrolic system it'self. Not my driving. I've been driving standard transmissions for over 30 years and never had this problem before. Any ideas what could be the problem since the auto shop doesn't seem to want to look for the problem.
thanks

Hello: If it is a hydraulic clutch then it isn't a linkage problem, thats for sure. Wonder if they put the clutch disk in backwards. In most cases this is not possible, but if it can be put in backwards then the hub of the clutch that has the springs will not work and act like a springless center hub. Possibly grease on the surfaces, sometimes that makes them shudder. I don't know what else it might be without a little more info.
Good luck
Darryl.

It could be as simple as a piolot bearing a lot of times they are overlooked
