View Full Version : clutch is pulsating

Hello to all. I noticed that my clutch has been pulsating when i put my foot on it. I also noticed that it has been difficult to shift gears. Can anybody provide any solutions? Thanks in advance.

It's an '01 A4 1.8T and its only chipped.

Anymore information? Was the clutch and flywheel recently replaced? whats the mileage? Do you have a lead foot?

I had the exact same problem. It most likely is your 'Slave Cylinder'.
Replace that first, and save yourself a lot of cash.

update: I replaced the clutch slave cylinder, and it seemed the problem has become worse. I can shift the car with no issues when the car is off. However, when the car is on, Im not able to shift the car from neutral with ease. In order to get the car to move, I have to start the car in 1st to get it moving. It feels as if the clutch is almost nonexistent. Can anybody provide some insight with this, before I plan to buy a new clutch and flywheel??
