Q: Clutch

asked by on

Hi, thanks for writing in. This is caused by the clutch hydraulic system leaking or going bad. You will need to have a mechanic check it to see if it is a bad slave cylinder or master cylinder that has gone bad. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home or office to confirm a diagnosis on the issue and make or suggest the necessary repairs or replacements.
