big lurch when pulls away from cold

1118 14

Occasionally the car does this v strange lurch when I engage 1st.
It only happens when it is v cold.
If I warm the car up before moving off it does not happen.

Ive been humming and ha'ing about whether to get the engine mounts changed. The gear stick feels fairly sloppy, but ive kinda got used to it.

But am i storing up trouble?
Will changing the mounts feel like £ well spent?

You need to open the hood and have someone watch as you let out the clutch in first and reverse gears. The engine may rock on one or more bad mounts. The worst case is if the rear mount lets go entirely and the engine hits the hood, but with the cable around it, it should only happen if the cable breaks... Ron
