  1. Mk2 Mondeo Clutch

    Thanks for replies guys-still running-touch wood.I had a quick fumble behind pedal-no major leakage but might be a bit greasy-will have a good look at weekend.Would it be possible for the master to fail internally-ie no visible leak? Also I have realised the symptoms described above are more likely to happen the day after my daughters driving lesson-!!
  2. Mk2 Mondeo Clutch

    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
