Mk2 Mondeo Clutch

25 November 2012 - 05:24 PM

Hi guys-compliments on an excellent forum.
I have a 1996 Mk 2 Mondeo 1.8 Turbo diesel with 109000 miles on the clock.Just recently the clutch pedal has started to slip to the floor-only on first starting and not every time. After that it returns back to normal and operation is fine with no slipping or difficulty in changing gear.
I think it may be getting worse as the other day I had to pump it a couple of times.
I have topped up hydraulic fluid but only a small amount just to keep it on the max level.
I cant see any leaks but of course there is a engine weather protector panel under the car.
My local garage said it might be the slave cylinder on the clutch itself and said it could cost big bucks.
I was wondering- given the age and value of the car -how long is it likely to be before it fails completely and would bleeding the system help,any advice much appreciated
.BTW the brakes are fine
