I have a 2004 Honda Rune, when I start out in first gear it

Customer Question

I have a 2004 Honda Rune, when I start out in first gear it sounds like I am in 2nd gear and there is a clinking noise from the engine. Once I get into 2nd and 3rd gear it runs fine, only when I start out in 1st gear.

From what you describe there is an internal transmission problem. Is this something that suddenly appeared or did it come on gradually?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It came on suddenly and is getting worse. Some people have told me maybe a bad tank of fuel?
Expert:  TIMOTO replied 2 years ago.

If fuel was the problem it would run bad in all gears.
