Hiya 

Just left the garage with a new brake cyclinder , and rear wheel brake cyclinders replaced, however and struggled to drive out the garage. It was fine before taking it in .

I asked the mechanic before I left but he didnt take anything on board.

I don't think its the clutch because I can select gears when the engine is off. 

Suppose the gearbox needs some tuning and maybe a mechanic has knocked it out with some recent work? 

I promise I'm getting better at basic mechanics! 

Phil

It is likely to be the clutch dragging if it's better with the engine  stopped. If it is you should find a similar problem with reverse.

Depending on the type of clutch, it might just need adjusting.

Clutch master or slave cylinder possibly on their way out?

How far is the push rod moving out of the slave cylinder when clutch pedal is being depressed

Will most likely need adjusting like you said! 

 

You might also want to bleed your clutch again, as for some reason I had to bleed mine again after replacing the release bearing

Thanks.for all your feedback .. I think the clutch needs adjusting . I've watched a few videos online and going to give it a bash. After going into a garage for new brake cylinders, I couldn't even get it out the garage, it was fine going in ! Thanks all

I have posted on here a 'Clutch Drag Fault Finder'. If you do a search you will find it. It will enable you to go through the entire clutch operating system and find the problem.
