Help! Odd clutch problem on 159
I have an Alfa 159 1.9 diesel, which has developed an odd problem with the clutch.
In town, all works fine. Driving first thing in the morning, or after a period of rest, the clutch is also fine.
However, if driving along a motorway for example (fast speeds, no depressing of the clutch etc), when I do finally come to press the clutch it feels 'tighter' than usual. Basically harder to press down, and has a little more restistance when lifting of the clutch again.
After that first clutch engage, it works fine, unless I then travel for another distance at speed, after which it feels 'loaded up' again.
I should add that the car changes gear perfectly, and there are no noises. And no, it's not the carpet getting stuck behind the pedal.
