I was having a problem with my clutch where it would be difficult to disengage it; crawling forward even with clutch depressed, difficulty getting out of gear etc. I gathered that the slave cylinder was a common problem so figured I'd start there.
What a pig of a job! Even with a flare wrench I managed to round the clutch pipe fitting, so ended up taking it apart where the hard line connects up to the soft line at the back of the engine bay. I bought another hard line, with the curly bit, and refitted it all today. But now I have a new problem.
With one press of the clutch pedal the clutch disengages sufficiently to engage a gear, but only briefly. Within a second the engine stalls as the clutch re-engages quickly. Pumping the clutch makes it worse and then there's no pressure. I have to wait 10 seconds or so and then can press the clutch once and it has good pressure again. I've bled it for a while and it doesn't seem to be improving, but this is my first time bleeding anything to be fair. Could this just be a case of it needing more bleeding, or is air getting in somewhere? Or does it sound like something else is broken?
Thanks in advance!
