Hi, I have a 2003 Pontiac vibe fwd base model with the 5 speed manual transmission and I recently replaced the clutch, half axles, ball joints, etc. It drove wonderfully for around 50 miles or so but now it can’t get going.
The engine starts just fine, but when you put it into gear its like the whole engine starts stuttering. It shakes andclunks and the wheels get no power, just this horrible and violent noise.
I checked the clutch fit with the alignment tool, used a new flywheel, torqued all the bolts, but I just don’t know what I missed.
Does anyone know what I could have done wrong? If there’s a possible fix that doesn’t involve taking the transmission off again?
Here’s a video I took or what it’s doing, hopefully that can help.
