Stutter when taking off + gear change sound
I have a 2007 159 2.2 JTS, when taking off, at 1st gear it goes fine until at around 2000 rpm it suddenly stutters, then goes back to normal again. It also feels like there is a lost of traction at the start of taking off until the stutter finishes.
I also notice some clanking noise between gear changes and most noticeable between 1-2, 2-3 and 3-4. There is also a whirling sound in 2nd and 3rd gear, i've googled the problems but most of them says its a "characteristic" of this car, however i am not too sure.
Would i need to do a clutch rod adjustment? If so, can anyone please tell me where the clutch rod is located and how to access it? Or if there is any other way to fix the problems please tell me.
