SVT Transmission Question. Not old topic!

Hi Focus Stick Shift Owner.

I recently got new SVT. Its not entirely new as it already has 26000 miles. Still under warranty and all. I used to drive the stick couple of years back so I'm abit rusty in my shifting. But I'm having abit of the problem shifting from rest - 1st - 2nd. It always want to stall and feels like the release points are not the same from one try to another. Everytime I shift from 1st to 2nd I can never get it smooth always bounching around - feeling like different release point again. It has been 3 days I have that car and I'm not the worst stick driver since I was very smooth with my previous stick car (about 5 years ago)

I'm scheduled to have my tranmission fix due to rattling. Any of you know if it will fix alot of the problem I'm having such as shifting release point, and rough change from 1st to 2nd? Any input would be greatly appericiated.

i don't know what to tell you - the 2004 has a new transmission that has a problem with powershifting from 1-2 but i've never heard any tranny issues on previous models

might be.. I'm certainly not sure since the car is in very good condition. I think it might be the symtom from the clutch. because from 2nd - 3rd- 4th... it goes fine. Only on the 1st and 2nd. With the new set of clutch and flywheels - I think it should improve a few stuffs.
