After turning the car off I got out and looked under the car and there was a large damp spot about two feet in diameter which was approximately under the firewall and in the center just about where the transmission bell housing is.
My car has a hydraulic clutch (two cylinders - master and slave) and is not cable operated. The master cylinder is inside the car at the top of the clutch pedal and the slave cylinder is outside and goes into the transmission housing. Since there is a puddle I suspect the slave cylinder has gone.
I am wondering what has happened and whether it is an easy fix. I suspect that, due to the temperature changes and the age of the car, a seal has gone somewhere or a pipe has broken. I have not physically gone under the car to thoroughly check things out.
There is no feeling of the clutch plate being depressed to enable the changing or engaging of gears.
have the same problem?
