Hi I have recently bought a Mazda 323F a few months ago, it has now 72200 miles year is 1995 and is a 1.5GXI. Recently when I am driving and change the gear from 1st to 2nd it starts to jerk as though its misfiring this repeats the process in 3rd gear also but not in 4th please help as my car had been serviced in June when I bought this.

Many Thanks

Does it have a rough idle in Neutral position. If not could be the clutch slipping.

Do this at 1st gear ease on out on the clutch and when it gets to the point when you normally release it, kick on the gas if revs up high before it reacts its slipping. Maybe a free play/height adjustment if not then its time for a clutch assy.

Then again it might be coming from the electronic engine controls-

Try checking for an exhaust back pressure to rule the exhaust system-Hence Catalytic Converter.

Thanks for your advice really appreciated, I have just one more problem when I am moving away in first gear when the car is stationery or when reversing I can hear like a ticking sound coming from behind. Please advise what this can be.

Could be something loose -check the exhaust system or look for an exhaust leak

I have been told the ticking is because I need a new back box on my exhaust.
