Question about 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe
Especially when starting to move the vehicle, I find the Santa Fe will **** rapidly if I do not release the clutch fast enough. My previous Santa Fe allowed me to play the clutch back and forth and no rough jerking would happen but now, this 2004 Santa Fe is almost always bucking me when I am going at a slow speed in first gear. Any ideas on why this is happening? I have the seat moved back to the farthest position, I am in a comfortable position overall, plenty of leg space for the accelerator and clutch. But I have to shift to 2nd gear within seconds of getting the car to move or else I am riding a bronco.
Most jerky clutches are traced to weak clutch disc coil springs.They are mounted in the clutch disc to absorb shock,but can get weak and can cause a jerky clutch.
Could also be a broken weak motor mount.

Have you checked the fuel pump pressure? About 100,000 miles the fuel pump of some Isuzus tend to fail. What I recommend Is to check
the fuel pressure of the pump using a fuel pressure gauge. Another possibility is a clogged fuel filter.Check the fuel filter.

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.

Scan for codes. Discribe when it jerks! Under a load,going up hill,pulling away from a stop? Does it shift okey? Possibilities--Bad ignition coils, Bad Throttle Position Sensor, Bad EGR Valve,Dirty Throttle Body ETC.

likely is an issue with the motor itself, or could possibly be due to dirt/rust in the way on the track. best to take the forward window panel out and check if it is blocking the way otherwise replace the power window motor.
