    So my transmission started to F up today. I drove it home from work and gave the car a good beating, no issues. I then took it out later tonight, and the car is shaking really bad when I engage the clutch starting from rest. The first 5 mph is really shaky, then its fine. I tried really letting the clutch slip from the 1-2 shift, but the shaking wasn't as bad. I also noticed that it is tougher to get the car into gear.

    It's an ITR tranny with a stock clutch. My guess is that the clutch might be going, but it still holds under load fine.

    So now the car is grinding at every shift unless the revs < 3000. Take-off's are very shaky, and I smell burning up front. I'm pretty sure something is fucked up with the pressure plate. It still holds at wot no problem.

    +1 pull it, don't drive it, stop any posable further damage, I blew apart the inner housing of my trans and did notice untill I seen a huge oil puddle in my drive way and went to start my car and it was all sorts of wicked grindage not even in a grear lol, and the fact that my cars clutch wouldnt disinguage anymore.
