    Most likely, your master cylinder is gone again. get it checked.

    Fiat Lover, if the master cylinder has a problem, wouldn't it affect all the gears and not the third one only? Can you please elaborate?

    Gear cable going dry could be a reson. I had this issue in Linea. TASS wanted to change clutch kit :) However lubrication of gear cables solved the problem.

    "TASS wanted to change clutch kit".... may be when I asked the adviser abt this last time , he told me tt " may be its time to change the clutch- it may cost apprx abt 10,000 INR. and wont be covered under xtra warranty. :( Will be keep updating abt this issue pls keep in touch....

    I had the same issue once and it got worse gradually and had to apply too much force to shift gears especially to 2 & 3. Finally, the MC failed completely and had to replace it. Another indication is a very faint metallic sound when releasing clutch, intermittently.

    I think depending on your driving habits, it may fail on day one or may be prolonged for sometime, before it completely gives up.
