Car Moving Slightly In Neutral

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i pulled the datto out the other day and i noticed that while i was warming it up if i have the gearbox in neutral and release the clutch the revs drop a bit and the car tends to roll forward until i depress the clutch pedal. Seems to do it when its really cold upon first start up. I have searched around the net a bit and some are saying its due to the colder weather here, the gearbox oil is thick or something like this. What do you guys think? Does it seem normal, or have you guys had this issue before? Maybe an adjustment? It only rolls forward really slightly.

By the way its an SR with S15 6 speed, solid mass flywheel with 5 puk button clutch.

Try selecting reverse (or any other gear), then back to neutral and see if it still does it.

I'm guessing the first gear syncro is a bit sticky.

If this is the case, and it drives normally when warm, I dare say the problem will sort it's self out with time and use.
