Thumbs down Need some HELP!!

Alright guys i got my car back last week on wednesday it was at the dealership as wat i described to the service manager as a vibration under 2k rpms when in first gear and when downshifting in 2nd under 2k rpms. There is wat i thought a hesitation where the whole car vibrates. The service manager said oh its the flywheel there is a hotspot on it i said ok. I ordered a new flywheel and clutch assembly stage 3 clutch fidanza flywheel - now ive had my car back for a week its still doing that at first i thought maybe it would stop and the parts needed to be broken in now i know it wasn't the flywheel wat else could it be. I don't wanna talk it back to the dealership and they charge me to figure out wats wrong with it when they couldn't get it right in the first place. is it a broken mount or is there something wrong with the axles or is it the tranny. Please help me out here

So you had to buy the parts that they diagnosed incorrectly? Shouldn't they be reimbursing you for this? Sounds VERY shady!

Yeah well they should but right now i just wanna get to the root of the problem. I just wanna kno wat it could be - again like when im at a dead stop and try to go the whole car shakes and hesitates then once i get going it doesn't but if im slowing down and drop it into 2nd around a turn and its under 2krpms the car does it again and it doesn't do it any other gears just 1st and 2nd and from a dead stop. If im already rolling it doesn't do it.

If you drop into 2nd, but leave the clutch engaged, does it still do it? Sounds like the engine is bogging down or trying to stall on you.

yes thats exactly wat it feels like and yes its with the clutch engaged if i hold the clutch down it just goes down to where it should be and if i let it go it shakes also if i drop it into second at lets say higher than 2k it doesn't do it at all but if it gets lower than 2k i can feel the car shake

How about idle at a stop. What's it do then?

Sounds like it's something with your clutch then, kinda like it's slipping at the low RPMs. Was it installed correctly?

the chattering sound is the fidanza flywheel...perfectly normal

the "hesitation" sounds like a fuel issue...either from not pressing the gas pedal enough (I don't want to critique your driving, but remember your clutch is new and operated differently/has new engage point, etc) OR could be fuel pump. Do you have the YRF0 flash?
