I have a kia sportage 2001 model. It is a very good car. Clutch, gears everything was perfect. The starter motor died. I had it changed. I gave the car to a mechanic whom I know nothing about to change the starter motor as he was the only person who had a starter motor for the car. After the starter motor was changed the clutch is not engaging properly, by this I mean, when I press the clutch pedal, the clutch is not fully engaged and it is difficult to change gears. If I keep the gear in either first or reverse and start the car with the clutch pedal fully depressed, the car starts moving. When the engine is running if I keep the car in first gear or reverse gear and with the clutch pedal fully depressed the car starts moving immediately even before I release the clutch. What can be the reason?
Please help, thanks.
