Annoying clutch pedal

Post by APDevelopments » 15/05/18 19:29

Hi guys.
My 1990 G reg MK2 Rev 1 mr2 Turbo has a very annoying clutch pedal problem.
Last year the clutch was replaced.
Since changing it it does a very silly thing and it’s getting worse.
When your driving it normally there is not a problem.
In traffic, doodling around everything’s fine.
But!
When you give it some beans and go to change gear the clutch pedal sticks down on the floor.
When you take your foot off the gas it pops back up as normal.
I’ve tried bleeding the clutch. Still the same problem.
The clutch is not slipping when the pedal is on the floor whilst I’m giving it some beans. So I don’t think it’s the clutch itself.
It’s very annoying.
So I accelerate hard. Press the clutch to change gear. It goes into gear but when I bring my foot back up the pedal is still in the floor. Until I relax the throttle.
Any ideas?

whats your engine mounts like?
reason is if they allow the engine to rock excessively then they it could cause issues with the clutch slave cylinder set up as it all flexes.
thats where I would be looking 1st
