My car done that for a while until I got rid of me bovver boots - only joking though. It sounds like a clutch or gearbox problem - does it happen in any other gears

If it only happens when the car is cold I would suspect a sticking clutch plate. As a matter of interest can you go from 1st to any other gear when this occurs.

If not under warranty I suggest you take it to a clutch clinic - sounds the most likely cause to me. Do you leave it in gear overnight and have you tried depressing the clutch whilst starting as many handbooks recommend.

Sounds like some of the folowing
1. Sticky clutch
2. Faulty gerabox
3. faulty linkage
I have a look at the linkage first, then the clutch, then the gearbox. Good Luck

I had the same problems on my Peugeot and that was a Diesel aswell. when you start the car just leave it to warm up first and go throug your gears, 1 2 3 4 5 and Reverse, after leaving it for about 5min it should be fine. Garage told me it would cost over £130 to fix, but i said il do the warmin up part first :eek:
