Re: car touble

Has it always done this? (clutch can be difficult untill you get the "hang" of it, give it more revs)
Started just recently? (you mentioned 60k travelled, clutch maybe worn out)

Re: car touble

Stabs in the dark (I'm more of an E series man).

Does the BA have a clutch position microswitch to tell the ECU when the clutch is in or out? Earlier Falcons had one. If so, is it acting up?

How about silly things such as a wiring loom under the dash out of place? Depressing the clutch pedal might disturb a mis-routed wirning loom and cause interruptions to, for example, the ignition system. Might even be crushing wires etc.

As I said, stabs in the dark!
