Hi,

I’m new to E30’s 
I have a problem with my E30 318is. 75K on the clock.

When I’m driving it goes in gear perfectly. However, when I’m moving the car slowly, and dip the clutch fully into the carpet, the car appears to to jerk forward and stall as though the clutch is still engaged. If I’m still in gear after I stall, I cannot get out of gear unless I press the clutch again and restart the car. It then goes in gear no problem and drives okay again. But this repeats more or less each time I try to manoeuvre the car slowly. Any ideas?

Clutch master/slave cylinder issues or just needs bleeding perhaps.
