It sounds like the clutch actuator is worn out.
The clutch actuator has 2 parts:
1. the clutch master cylinder
2. the clutch slave cylinder.

Try to replace the slave cylinder first, and if it is still not solving the problem, then try to replace the clutch master cylinder

Good Luck

2000 toyota mr2 burninig a lot of oil, misfiring, lose of power, check engine light blinking

There are different reasons why this problem is happening. From your description, I believe that you may have an engine failure. Defective piston rings and/or damaged valve seals or guides. The first think I would do is perform a compression test. A compression test (wet and dry) will tell you if the compression levels are even and acceptable. It will also tell you if you are having a valve related issue within the head. Where you are losing oil, I would start here. There really is only three places for oil two go, when there is a failure. into the cylinders and out the exhaust, in the coolant, and onto the ground. I hope this helps, please write back if you have additional questions or updates on your progress, good luck.

Passat losing power when driving, all lights on dash come on, then the lights go back off. If I turn car off won't start acts like battery is dieing, what 30 min or so than car turns on. Drive a few miles...

This could also be a faulty fuel pump relay. I had a Honda Prelude that would not restart when hot, but if I let the engine bay cool down for 10 minutes, it would start no problem.

The answer to the the back up lights it the trans reverse switch on top of the transmission on the drivers side.The wires seem to corrode and fall out. Its really hard to remove so I used epoxy to set the wire back in place. as for the The other issue. Does this happen more often in the rain? Use some dielectric grease on the MAF sensor connected to the air cleaner. I hope that helps. Hit me up for a better explanation.

A host of problems with my '87 MR2

looks like you have a lot of problems due to poor maintenance. look for a salvage yard around your area. get an AFM, distributor, and coil/ingiter and swap each component one at a time to identify the culprit (I suspect coil). replace all suspect vacuum hoses (again one at a time). Check engine light can be diagnosed to point out your specific problem so there should be no guess work on this. inspect wiring that connects to the coolant sensor. Also check electrical connections (potitve battery post and all chasis ground). air pockets in the cooling system also causes idling problems so make sure you bleed it completely. also inspect air/fuel filter, plugs and plug wires and distributor cap and rotor. replace as neccessary.

good luck
