All the time or just when the appropriate revs are happening?

@TEKaY
 :eek:  okay a couple of basic questions
                     with engine running ?  Yes / No ?
                    does car move at all ?  Yes / No ?
                     
 Usually,  clutch NOT working is the normal problem after a change    :rolleyes:

So it feels like I can change through the gears without using the clutch with the car off.

Is that a problem? I thought that was normal for a manual...  :undecided:

Also free advice.  :D Amazing where the English language can take you.  :cool:

Now , have you tried starting the car, and even been a bit adventurous,- eg. changing gears while on the road?  :mrgreen:

I like guessing games, but they can be frustrating sometimes!  :crazy1:
