Ford Ka Hard To Get In Gear

3 posts in this topic

hi guys i did a full service today on my 2004 1.3 ford ka 1.3 duratec it is hard to get into gear when driving and when slowing down with car in gear and clutch pressed it feels like engine is trying to cut out.

i replaced the coilpack just before this problem started and when i was fitting the coulpack i disturbed the brake servo hose and i hear a hiss noise like it let a little air in.

could this cause the gear problem or any ideas what can be causing my clutch drag symptoms.

cheers guys

Hiss is probably servo/pipe leaking air, not sure if you still get hiss or not but this will be unrelated to gear problem.

Would check your fluid level in brake master reservoir as if it's a bit low in can create an air pocket in clutch system...either way would have clutch bled anyway to see if that improves matters
