shifter vibration in 2nd gear

Hello, all.

I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing/has experienced this.

When I'm in 2nd gear the shifter seems to vibrate alot. However, if i pull slightly on it toward me the vibration completely disapears.

Maybe this is normal but I don't recall any other stick I've had be quite like this.

Thanks!

I don't recall this being a problem in my car. Like previously discussed, the biggest concern for me is when shifting into 2nd or 3rd gear (the synchros).

i wondered about that when i bought my car but im not sure if your having the same issue. if you shift into second when your rpms are kinda low, there will be a vibration.

Woah! If you raise it to high, how am i gonna inject the cheese!

nothing like that for me... I just try to be careful when I throw it into third, I make sure it's all the way in.

when you have your rpm's below 2500 is it rattling alot. this may be what your feeling if you shift at a low rpm. thats what i have noticed a little. its very suttle though.

For 1st, 2nd and 3rd I usually shift at 4000rpm on a daily routine i'm-tired-as-hell-and-just-want-to-sleep drive. But sometimes I'll hit 5000-6000rpm when I'm trying to past someone from a complete stop. But on the days I really feel like "driving", it's to the redline we go!

That's when you shift? I don't shift that low (2000rpms) in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd 'cause then you'd have to shift waaay to quickly, I just let it creep up to 3500 - 4000rpm then shift.

no problem with mine, but i would normally shift between 3,500-4,500rpm. the only time, i would change below 3,500rpm is when there is a cop! hahahaha...........them CAI get's pretty loud, and my exhaust(cop said, when i got pulled over and didn't write me a ticket for it, "it's pretty loud!")

Yay for fellow 4000rpm shifters. Too bad that Driss drives like a granny.
