hello, ive been having problems with my car when driving off in first gear. the car will jutter and struggles to set off. it feels like it is about to stall and needs a lot of revs to go. this is only a problem when in stop start traffic or after stopping a lights. the problem is not present when the car is first started, is this a clutch issue or something else?

When it is happening in traffic it takes forever to go however as soon as it does there is no problem until I stop again

It has a fuel injection issue not a clutch fault.

okay, this only occurs when in traffic and not when the vechial is first started. it does not occur any other time apart from when the engine is hot after being driven for a while. would this still be a fuel injection issue?

yes that is because the engine is at full temperature so it is giving you the trouble could be a throttle body it needs diagnostic test doing.
