Clutch Pedal Sticks to floor only over 6250 RPM
I am hoping to get some advice on a strange problem.
I have just had my Clutch disc changed and a new Q2 put in on my 156 2.5 V6.
Doing the some enthusiastic driving revealed a problem.
My clutch pedal sticks to the floor only above 6250 RPM!
Pushing the pedal in all the way, changing gear then lifting it off causes it to stick to the floor and the engine keeps revving to it's redline. Upon letting go of the Accelerator, the RPMs come down, the pedal pops back up and gear is engaged.
I stopped to the side of the road, placed it in neutral, fully depressed the clutch pedal, revved the engine to it's red line, let go of the clutch pedal and it sticks. As soon as I let go of the accelerator and the RPM is below roughly 6000 the clutch pedal pops up.
Strange isn't it?
So while driving smoothly say revving up to just 5000 RPM, the changes in gear are faultless and silky smooth. Perhaps the bite point might be a bit higher than what it should but there is absolutely no slipping like there was before I had the disc changed.
I have done some searching on the forum and found nothing related to my problem.
The pedal never sticks if it is below 6000 RPM, so I doubt a slave cylinder job would solve it although I haven't totally discounted it.
It is as if the bearing inside the transmission is sticking to it's position on it's shaft due to the centrifugal force placed on it. (or is that centripetal?)
Any Ideas what it could be?
Thanks for you help!
I love this forum!
