you sure it's not just the dropping/raising of idle during normal high idle clutch engagement.

My car bucks like a F*ck when it's warming up if I don't over gas the crap of it and feather the clutch...

If this is your problem you may want to consider tightening your motor mounts...

Is the warm-up idle rough?

it only happened if i dont let the car idle for a little. Then sometimes after i get on it, it will jerk a little in higher gears like third fourth and fifth. not as dramatic though

Is it a misfire? Does it misfire under a load? Do you know what it feels like when an engine is misfiring because a faulty ignition component? Check your spark plugs, plug wires and rotor/cap.

it's because the idle is higher than normal so when you put in the clutch it's reving at a higher rpm then you're used to so if you shift you are gassing it the same as if it were at normal idle speed... so it bucks a little... you can give it more gas and let the clutch out a little more slowly and it won't do it... that or let the car come up to temperature...

It happens more with cars in need of a tune up... so if you're behind on any of the normal maintanance items you may want to go ahead and catch up.

It could be but generally it's just a general out of tune symptom..

that code is your tdc sensor which you don't really want to go... I'd replace the dist.

i was told i just need to replace the sub assembly, i just put a brand new 250 dollar ignitor in there and its still acting GAY!!!!!!!!! Today during the middle of the day that **** was acting weird like 3/4 power, you think heat has something to do with it at all?

the ignitor won't fix the tdc sensor or the dist... sounds to me like you need a new distributer...

heat could have something to do with it but not the most likely thing... a brand new ignitor shouldn't malfunction do to heat... although it's certainly not operating at peak...

the code you're throughing indicates you need a new dist.
