Hi all
I am new too this forum as I have just purchased a corsa yesterday. Been driving it today and the clutch seems too slip in 2,3,4,5 gear only sometimes though does this mean it needs a new clutch or could it be something else? Like I say sometimes it pulls fine. Any help would be greatful thanks

The snag is that the 1.3cdti is notorious for having huge flat spots that can sounds and feel like loss of drive if you're not used to them.

The best check is to engage 2nd gear, set the rpm to fast idle, hold the throtte steady and then slowly let the clutch out with the handbrake firmly on. The engine should struggle as the clutch bites and then stall. If you feel it slipping when you do that test take it back to where you bought it.
