Clutch assembly going or clutch cynlinder?
Hey all, it's been quite a while since my 95' 325i has had any problems but I think my clutch may be starting to die. Sometimes when I push the clutch pedal in from stopped position, the pedal feels like something is pushing up on the clutch in a tapping fashion. This only has happened when I'm stopped at a light and I press in the pedal to shift into first. Sometimes I can feel it slightly from 1st to 2nd but it's harder to tell when the car is moving. When this resistance happens the clutch sometimes feels like it's slipping but I can accelerate normally and it doesn't slip at all in the other gears. Other than that the clutch feels fine and grabs on fine. This probably only happens 50% of the time because other times it feels fine and I can't feel that resistance pushing on the pedal. I searched the e36 forums for clutch problems but I didn't see any posts similar to my problem. I'm assuming it's something related to the clutch because it's coming from the clutch pedal. I'm just not sure if it's the whole clutch assembly going or if this might be a clutch cylinder problem. I haven't noticed any fluids on the ground but then again I park in different spots in my apartment complex. The car has 132k miles on it and I'm pretty sure the clutch assembly was replaced just before I got it at 98k. However, I'm not positive that it was replaced. If it wasn't, I guess this would be normal for my clutch to go out right now?
