Thanks for using JustAnswer.com! My name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I'll try to answer your car questions. I'll start off with some basic checks to do, then we can get into more advanced diagnostics if needed. Let me know if any questions come up, or if there is anything I can do to help! You can update this message at anytime. - I'm sorry to hear about any troubles with the vehicle, but would be glad to try and help! - Usually these symptoms are first signs of a failing slave cylinder, or clutch disc. Recommend having the clutch fluid level and condition checked, and inspect for signs of leakage or contamination. If fluid level is good and no leakage, use borescope to check the operation of the clutch inside the bellhousing of the [transmission](/topics-transmission-jaguar/). Look for signs of overheating and wear. - Depending on the mileage of the vehicle, the clutch may need to be replaced, would recommend having clutch master and slave cylinder replaced at the same time, to prevent any hydraulic issues causing future issues. Lemme know what youre seeing, or if any questions come up while checking things out!

I have 150,236 miles off that mileage would it have to be replaced? I also noticed on my dash the low fluid comes on

Ya, it's getting up there, sounds like time for replacement, especially if seeing a low fluid light on for the clutch. Recommend having the clutch hydraulic system checked for leaks and wear, then the clutch assembly itself. If any of the parts need replacement, would recommend to replace as a set, to avoid future issues. Please lemme know if anything I can do to help, or if any questions come up while getting it checked out!

Alright thanks
