Hi,

I am having some problems with my car. I would be soooo grateful if you could possibly assist in letting me know what there is I can do.

Last year, when it got to freezing temperatures outside, I had some real problems with my clutch. It seemed to have gone and I could not get my car in gear for love nor money. I had completely resigned myself to the fact that it was ruined and I needed a new car.

However, one day (when the weather had eased off a little bit) it was fine again. It worked all throughout the year without a hitch. No problem whatsoever, not even a hint of one. I thought it was all hunky-dory.

Although now the weather has gotten icy again, it has happened again! Arrrgh!

It basically feels like the clutch has gone, there is no resistance at all and it goes straight to the floor no problem and does not respond at all to pressure. I am at a loss… it seems like there is nothing wrong with the clutch or it would not be fine in warmer weather? Is there anything I can do to resolve this?

Your help is reallllly appreciated!

How do I check that? Forgive me for being a complete girl! :) The only thing I have checked is the brake and clutch fluid, I've topped it up completely but I remember that last year that didnt seem to make any difference?
