Mondeo 2003 estate, 51000 miles, I have no problem engaging

Customer Question

Mondeo 2003 estate, 51000 miles, I have no problem engaging gears with engine off but engaging any gears is stiff to impossible with engine switched on but cold and I need to switch engine off to engage gear. This does not happen when engine is warm. Any ideas?

Hi .

This may be due to a bad clutch ,

But what i suggest you do first is flush and replace the clutch fluid ,

This is the most common issue for clutch problems as the fluid should be replaced every two years, but in most cases its never changed .

So do this first and see if the problem gets better or not .

If the problem is still there after the flush and replacement of clutch/brake fluid
then please get back to me if needed.

Need further assistance then please get back to me with the reply box and not the poor or bad service button .
