Default Zen pickup problem. Please help!

Hello guys!
I have a Zen (MPFI) with all stock engine. I face a very peculiar problem with it, after lot of clutch use in city's stop and go traffic, the engine start jolting during pick up in first gear and I have to press clutch immediately and start releasing again carefully.

This problem is gradually spreading to 2nd gear as well . My daily drive is about 50km but this problem is giving lot of pain.

Need help from experts!

Thanks
Ravi

The clutch bearing has nothing to do with this. A bad clutch bearing will just cause noise when the clutch is pressed.

It looks like your clutch plates are worn out. Have it checked at a reliable MASS.

Clutch plate is about one year old and has done only 12-14k KM.

Most probably, your clutch plate is worn out.

100% a worn out clutch. Best for you to replace it before your car breaks down.
