Mondeo - heavy clutch - marko
Recently acquired a Mondeo 2.0 petrol, 2000 on a X plate, 15,000. All going well until last couple of days when the clutch action has been getting heavier and heavier. Any thoughts on whats happening - can I expect to be stranded pretty soon?

Cheers

It's a hydraulic clutch and should be as light as that of a Japanese car. Suspect failure of master cylinder or slave cylinder or a leak in the assistance.

The hydraulic action for the clutch is by an integrated slave cylinder/release bearing assembly within the bellhousing. These set-ups are notoriously unreliable.
