Volkswagen Golf clutch problem
I have an ongoing problem with the clutch on my Golf.

It is okay at start-up but after driving for about 10 miles there is no pressure at all and pedal sticks to floor. It will not pump back up, and I have real problems with changing gear. If I stop and switch off the engine, it's okay again.

I have changed the master cylinder, which was okay for a couple of days but now the same problem again. There's no loss of fluid.

Comfortable and quiet on the move, enjoyable to drive. Nicely trimmed with great attention to detail. 1.4 TSI sweeter to drive than a diesel.
