Clutching at straws
Ok here goes,156 1.8ts, done 200 miles on rebuilt engine with no problems, came to go out and now wont go in gear. Turn engine off and goes in gear fine, try to start (with clutch pedal down) and she tries to drive/stall
Noticed the fluid level empty so top her up and have a look for leaks but find none, zip, zilch.
Bleed through new fluid and lots of air bubbles,and we start to get a peddle. Bleed more and she'll go in gear hoorah!
Take her for a spin and the pedal gets worse and worse, eventualy the pedal stays down and have to bring her home in 1st...
Fluid level hasnt gone down, and no matter how much pumping the pedal stays soft/down.
Bleed through again and its all airated fluid....grrrr Then it goes dark.
Anyway I'm thinkin the clutch master cylinder is shot and drawing air in?? Ideas? Price?
The clutch itself aint new but when you get a pedal it works just fine.
Could it be the slave cylinder?
Anyone had a master cylinder go?
Anyone help would be appreciated, even Bazza! frown
