2010 reverse issue

So basically what I'm experiencing is a tightness when I try to first back out of my driveway. It shifts into reverse fine, but when I let the clutch out I can feel it wanting to move but it wont and it usually dies. I'll start it back up and do it again and its always fine the second time. Again, this only happens once upon initial startup after sitting overnight. It is a brand new clutch, so unless it was installed wrong couldnt be that. Any ideas?

Sure you've hit reverse and not 6th? I've done that a few times.

Yeah, I'm positive. It makes a rearward motion, but it feels like the parking brake is on. Hmmm, I wonder if my parking brake is sticking.

If the parking brake is stuck it should feel like it's loading up in the rear when you let the clutch out.

The initial push is always toughest as the oil in the diff's. If this is mostly on cold starts (+-4 hours sitting) plus depending on tire thread patter it will be easier/harder to move.. I feel the same sort of additional resistance here in Boston . Specially on nights like tonight where its about 33 degrees

Hmm, that's good to know. I purposely never try to push through it because I didnt want to break anything. Wasnt sure what it was, but it definitely feels like its coming from the rear. So, the diff being the culprit makes sense. I'll try pushing through it in the morning.

Bluejeepster, it does feel like its loading up in the rear. Which is why I' confused on if its the diff or the brake.

It does seem like there's resistance. The only resistance should be from Hill Start Assist and that should be for only a fraction of a second and then it should release. You can disable HSA if you want. Details are in the manual. Possibly your emergency brake or something faulty with HSA is causing the issue.
