Stuttering in first gear

Hello all me again.

Evo is playing up again. Since it went into the shop the second time to have the same repairs done when the breaks were jamming on, I've been hearing a strange noise when going to slowly in second gear.
This problem has now developed into the car stuttering in firs gear like I'm not giving in enough revs.
Also to this when traveling and accelerating to change gear the revs will suddenly jump up. The highest increase I have noticed was when it jumped from 2500 to 3500. It then seems to sort it's self out and returns to the correct rpm but does it when you next change up.

Kinda feels like something may be slipping as yesterday I had to stop as I couldn't even get the car to go into gear, felt like the clutch cable had snapped.

Anyone got any ideas cause this car is really starting to get on my nerves.

Cheers
Paddy

Its a hydraulic clutch so no cables.

What engine, the M-Air? If so, go to the dealer and tell them to reset the M-air parameters.

Re: Stuttering in first gear

just had major work on the braking system didnt you?

get it back and get them to rebleed the clutch......

(its supplied off the brake fluid bottle if they drained the brake system down there is a chance air got in to the clutch system)

Re: Stuttering in first gear

It does run a cable actually.

Took it down to the dealership this morning and checked in in. Awaiting a phone call from them with the diagnosis. Given me a fiat 500 for the time being. Horrible for me being 6'2"

Trying to work out the costs to them at the moment.
Anyone know what a master cilinder and servo would run? With labour?

Re: Stuttering in first gear

No I was wrong

The list of work

Servo + master cilinder
Servo + master cilinder (2nd time)
Clutch + fly wheel

Any idea on what it would cost for parts + labour from a fiat dealership?
