I can feel every shift into gear. Like the clutch doesn't engage properly. I am new and don't know if this is normal. I had everything replaced like clutch flywheel throw out. I still have that rattle type sound when clutch is out. Do all fsvt do this. It doesn't grind but damn close. You can hear every shift.

Is it a clunking sound that you're hearing when you shift? Took me a while to get used to it but it usually goes away when the car warms up. The flywheel rattling can get a little annoying too when sitting at a drive-thru.

The rattle is normal, it's just how these trans are. As far as the shifting, if you remove your air box, you can see the shift linkage. Just take some spray lubricant and lube it up, might just be stiff. It helped mine.
