Juddery clutch

Ive managed to sort out my horendous oil leak, which turned out to be a worn aluminium ring seal on the chain tensioner. No sooner have I sorted this but my clutch is now working itself. CHRIST!

Every gear change from 1st up to 5th is now juddering/jumping away as if the clutch is slipping. It is driving me up the wall. Does this mean my clutch is knackered or is it just an adjustment thing?

Oh by the way Ill remind you guys that it is a 1997 108D. I love it so much.

Whats the mileage on that clutch?

Coupla things could be wrong - Warped friction plate or pressure plate, Take-up springs in the friction plates went pete-tong, doubt it would be the actuating fork maybe a siezed thrust bearing....either way mate, I think you are in for a gearbox out effort, bugger!!

The van has done abou 85,000 miles. I know that this is probably not the cause, but the problem with the clutch has only started whilst I had this major oil leak from the chain tensioner. There was so much oil that the driveshafts had spread it all over the underside of the engine on both sides and right down the floor pan to the raer of the van. Is it possible for the oil to cause this problem?

its not impossible, but I would say its unlikely, normally if your crank seal goes and it leaks oil onto the clutch, its starts to slip, not judder, thats my experience anyway.

If there perhaps a plug on the bellhousing that you can remove and shine a wee torch in and see if the internals are oil covered?

How is the clutch actuated, oil or cable?
