I don’t really know a lot about cars and English isn’t my first language, so sorry for some stupid sounding sentences.
I own an old 1997 Subaru Forester 2l manual.
I had my clutch changed and now I have following problem.
If I for example wait at a red light, after pressing the clutch and stopping the car, my car is blocked as if I would have pulled the handbrake. The engine keeps running in idle. If I want to start driving again, there is some sort of resistance that forces me to use higher rpm. It feels like starting to drive with that pulled handbrake. After the first moment, that resistance disappears and I can drive normally.
If I go into neutral and release and press the clutch before starting to drive this resistance isnt there either.
The clutch is totally functional, something just gets stuck.
Does anyone have an idea? I didn’t find all lot on that problem in the internet.
I can’t go back to my mechanic because he’s on the other end of Australia.
I’ve been driving with this issue for about 10000km now and nothing really changed since then.
Thank you and sorry for my engish.
