Q: Engine shudders as foot is removed off clutch on 2000 Honda Accord

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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.

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?
