Morning all,I have an intermittent clutch problem.Car has new master and slave cylinder and I had a problem putting into gear so I bled the system assuming some air was in it.Made a difference for about a month and now this morning it is back.when I put it in gear then started the motor I could feel the clutch was slightly engaged with the clutch pedal all the wat to the floor !
Could it be a problem with the pressure plate ?

Any ideas would be helpful
Thanks Giffo

Could be pressure plate, or could even be oil on the faces. Any oil leak from the drain hole at the bottom of the housing? Try another bleed of the system, then remove the slave and master and peel back the dust boots to see if any of the fluid is escaping past the piston seals inside. Inside of cylinders should be nice and dry. If clutch has done big K's, say over 150,000 then it may have to come out.

Did you have the problem before fitting the new master & slave cylinders?

If yes, then it can't be faulty new parts. If no, you may have a dud new part.

The clutch has done 150,000ks and no towing. I purchased the car off a relative so I know the history.The master and slave were replaced just before my purchase.It was done as the master cylinder died one day.There is no leaks from the base of the bell housing .Maybe one of the parts is dodgy,nothing to say that new parts are OK.I will try another bleed later today (before beer time ! ) as its too hot at the moment.

If the bleed fixed it then it would seem you had air in the system somewhere.

If the problem has come back then maybe you have a leak in the system somewhere.

I would check any place where there is a join or coupling in the system, like unions on the slave cylinder. It could also be a problem with the slave cylinder itself.
