    Starting the car

    Hi when i start my car the engine seems to "jump" shoogle and when inside the gear stick moves shakes shoogles more than i would have expected. ok at tick over just the initial starting of car.

    Also when driving in any gear and you accelerate the gear slick moves to the left a bit.

    is this fairly normal.

    Car - Astra 1.8 SRi 03 Plate

    Thanks

    Sounds like it's just your engine moving a bit when you're driving. They tend to lean back a little when you're driving anyway as far as I know, so...

    As for your "Shoogle".... I don't know. You got plenty oil in the engine?
