    Question Clutch / Accelerator Response

    Hi,

    Recently I've noticed, when trying / pulling away the car is stalling due to either the lack of response from the clutch or the accelerator. The clutch does feel "loose" (not sure how else to describe it) and the accelerator doesn't always kick in when it should.
    Anyone any ideas what this could be?

    See sig for car.

    Cheers,
    Martin

    I'm being told it could be the flywheel...?

    Is the clutch slipping by chance? How far down do you have to push the pedal before the clutch will engage?

    I wouldn't say slipping. It could be something with the accelerator...
    I'd say maybe around half way before the clutch will engage and change gear.
    Roughly around the height of the foot rest if that helps at all.
