I think my clutch is dragging.
It started off a little while ago as a problem changing from 1st to 2nd. Itís like the clutch isnít disengaging properly and 2nd only engages with a crunch. Now itís started doing the same from 2nd to 3rd, and when changing down to 3rd from 5th or 4th. Also, when releasing, the clutch engages rather abruptly, quite low in the pedal travel and occasionally, the pedal seems reluctant to come back up fully.
Could this be as simple as topping up the clutch fluid, or is it a potential master cylinder problem? Is that a major (expensive) job?
The car is a í57 2.4JTDm 159 with 40k on the clock. Apart from this, itís running beautifully.
