Default Jittery Clutch

Sometimes when i start out, it feels like the clutch is slipping,
the car wont bunny hop, just shake a little.
What it wrong???

this might be caused by not giving it enough enough gas/letting the clutch out too fast for the amount of gas you are giving it

Alright, Like sometimes, it will be perfect.
Like i can drive stick, But my car, sometimes the clutch is way different one day than it is the next,
so its hard getting used to,
But the revs dont drop low or anything,
its not bunny hopping,
but i think i might be letting the clutch out to fast

if it's different one day than the next i would start by changing the clutch fluid. it's cheap, easy, might possibly help, and should probably be changed anyway. make sure when you do this you bleed all the air out good.

dito. id bleed the system first and hopefully its just old bad fluid..... another thing i would check is under the dash... follow the clutch pedal and look for any fluid leaking around there.... if so the clutch master cylinder might be going bad. i know my old 94civic was leaking... under the dash and its clutch pedal never seemed to feel the same.
i know what your going thru

im just starting to get used to my new 96dx clutch. tho im still having slight issues with 1st/2nd. trying to get the gas/clutch right.... but i guess id rather burn alittle clutch than i would to kill the motor by not giving it enough gas and really look stupid in traffic.LMFAO
im getting better tho. i have been driving my auto civic for awhile now since i sold my 94ex.
i guess main good thing for me is if i roast the clutch NO BIG DEAL i got all the tools and time to swap it out infact i would like to swap out the clutch eventualy just so im sure i know the clutch is new..
