Q: Clutch sticking

asked by on

My clutch is sticking.

The clutch hydraulic system would have to be checked first, to make sure that it is moving the clutch pressure plate in and out. If it is working properly, then your clutch pressure plate has a problem, and the transmission would need to come out in order to diagnose the clutch pressure plate, and clutch plate. If the hydraulic system is not moving the clutch pressure place, then it would need to be checked for problems like the master, or slave cylinders binding. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like ones from YourMechanic, come by and check your car to isolate the cause of your clutch problem.
