    Default Help!! Clutch advice needed!!!

    Hi was out last nite in my 56 plate cdti 150 and i have been having problems with the clutch sticking, but last nite when pulling away went to change gear and the clutch pedal sunk right back in to the floor and isnt rising to the top at all. Has anyone else had this and does this mean i need a new clutch or could it just be a cable or something? the car has 100,000 on it.
    also if anyone can recommend somewhere decent in the glasgow area preferebly eastend that would be great

    could be the slave or master cylinder causing the problems
    can you lift the pedal back up manually ?

    have you checked if you are losing fluid,as D say's it sound's like master/slave cylinder .also it could be gearbox input shaft that needs greasing on spline.

    no idea on cost ,under bonnet to the left on bulkhead there are two fluid resorvoir's (plastic containers about the size of a cup)one is for brakes the other the clutch,there is a level mark on side of container ,
