Q: Clutch problems with my BMW.

asked by on

The clutch is not working.

We need to know if there is pressure on the clutch pedal or if it is loose. If the clutch pedal has no pressure, make sure there is brake fluid in the master cylinder. I would have a technician inspect the clutch to see if there is fluid and no pressure. If the clutch has never been replaced it may be time to replace it, they should last around 150,000 miles depending on how the car is driven.
