When I started my car this morning I noticed that I couldnt shift into reverse gear easily. I could hear the
gears grind. I hit the clutch and noticed reduced resistance. It easily hits the floor very easily now.
This problem was not there unitl now. I can still drive the car but have to force the gears in place.
Also, I noticed about a week back that when I start the car the idling had gone up. What would generally idle around 1000 rpm was now 1500 rpm. Generally the rpm would rise only when the A/C waas switched on, but since the time the idling has gone up turning the A/C on doesnt seem to make any difference to the rpm. I do not know if this was a precursor to the clutch problem but wanted to furnish this information anyways.
I am a novice when it comes to cars, so I would really appreciate any insight anybody could provide.
have the same problem?
