Clutch experts, Replace clutch master cyl???
Problem just started the other day.
Clutch pedal pressure and travel feels normal.
Sitting at light, hard to get into first unless I find another gear before going into first gear. Goes back into first easily if I keep foot on clutch but as soon as I take foot off clutch and push back in I can't get back into gear.
Does not happen when cold, just after it warms up.
Shifts perfectly normal when driving and down shifting.
Trans fluid is fresh and recent and level checks good along with clutch fluid.
No visible leaking from slave cyl. (internal)
There is a slow drip of clutch fluid on the drivers mat so I think I should go ahead and replace the master cyl.
I'm wondering if the system has drawn air into it and is causing this problem, although pedal feels normal.
What do you think?
