Car Get's Stuck In 1st, master, slave or clutch?
My 96 NA started acting up on me once again
It started last night
So clutch became about an inch or so lower than it was for the past 6 months
When I come to a complete stop, shifting in first is possible only if I touch the clutch just to shift into first. But I have to either shift it into 2nd or force to shifter into neutral (car feels like automatic you begin to panic and have to either shift or RIP it out of the gear)
If I hold the clutch and the brake or just the clutch pedal all the way to the floor for more than a couple of seconds it wont go into gear at all and clutch will stay sucked in for about a second.
No visible leaks on the slave cylinder, the reservoir is full and did not change it's level at all since summer 2013.
When the car is already rolling even just 2mph it's as easy as usual to shift in/out of the 1st. Definitely something clutch pressure related but what?
According to symptoms is it a slave cylinder, master cylinder or pressure plate?
