STUCKING IN REVERSE GEAR

2002 Vauxhall Vectra • 85,000 miles

Hi wonder if anyone could help me with the problem I am having with my vauxhall vectra 1.8 2002 model. When the car is left over night and I put it into reverse it won't come back out until the engine has been switched off even with the clutch down.
The clutch was bleeded yesterday and the car was driving fine with all gears better than before it was bled. The reason it was bleed because I was having the above problems with reverese and other gears. Do I just need to re-bleed again or is this problem relating to something else.

Any advise would be very much welcomed

You could have air in system but the bleeding should have taken care of it.

If the vehicle tend to struggle as if the clutch is being released for taking off, the clutch hydraulic system has a fault. The master cylinder could be losing hydraulic pressure. This would mean the master cylinder is failing.
