Clutch only has about 15000 miles on it. The clutch pedal is extremely stiff/ hard. The vehicle starts to move when the clutch pedal is almost to the top and it seems that the clutch itself is sticking.
My car has 89000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
If the clutch pedal is hard to push or stiff the most likely cause is a problem with the pedal linkage or the clutch cable (if mechanical clutch versus hydraulic). If the fault is not found there, the other common causes of a hard clutch pedal are a worn or binding release bearing guide worn, no lubrication on the release bearing guide, binding clutch cable, binding linkages or worn bushings, worn release fork or pivot, worn cross shaft guide, improper hydraulic fluid, overextended slave cylinder which though could reflect additional internal mechanical clutch problems, damaged firewall with the clutch mount pulling through firewall, broken or worn pedal bracket or bushings, and other causes. If you would like your issue diagnosed and estimated for repair, please request a comprehensive clutch diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this resolved for you promptly, right at your location.
