HELP! (hoping just clutch cable)
driving home from work last night, just taking it really easy... accelerate like a grandma, change slowly into second, get up to about 50k's and i put my foot on the clutch pedal, and it felt extremely different to it has ever felt before.
and the car wouldnt go into 3rd. so i pulled over to let passing cars go past me, and went to put it into 1st to pull out again and it wouldnt let me change into 1st!!. so im think oh shit, so i think ok i will get home in 2nd. so i try to change into 2nd and it still wont go in.
i pumped the clutch pedala bit, and with alot of strength jammed it into second and drove home in 2nd gear. after fiddeling with it today, it seems i can get into all gears using force. (except reverse) , and i can idle in all gears with clutch in, and can drive in all gears.
i am hoping that the clutch cable has snapped a few strands and is extremely loose.
will pull it apart tonight and have a look..
i am just worried that the cable is fine and i have snapped a few prongs on the diaphram pressure plate =-\ coz thats gona be a bitch to fix.
ill keep yas posted with what i find the problem to be.
until now looks like ill be scabbin lifts to school again..
