My Accord LX is a 5-speed manual. When I put the car into first gear and pick my foot off the clutch, the engine shudders if I don't push the accelerator hard and give it "Too Much" gas. This is especially true when I start the car first thing in the morning. It still does it when the car is warmer but not as violent. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

This is the original clutch that was in there when I purchased the car new.

Hello Tcambri, I was wondering if you ever found out what the problem was with your car. I have the exact same problem with almost all gears though, 1st is worst, 2nd, and 3rd just barely does it as well. I have a similar year and model, civic 2001 so maybe it is the same problem. Whole clutch assembly replaced 2 months ago so I am very confused. I've been told my front axles are very bad and need replacing, could this have something to do with it?
