Clutch pedal

Hi just looking for some opinion and other drivers owners experiences, I got 2006 2.3 diesel fiat Ducato based motor home old shape/style, the clutch pedal is very high on it in the cab, it pulls ok, starts to stall in second gear clutch test, but never was at uphill reversing, very easy to produce smoke, so have to take it real easy, as I do not want to burn out the clutch, is this normal do i have to worry clutch is on the way out? it only has done about 30miles so not very much millage.Is the clutch in these model cable or hydraulic?
Thanks for any answers.

I'm not sure what you're saying about uphill reversing but I wonder is this the era of 'reverse judder'? Some on here suffered that and will have some knowledge.

And welcome to the forum cyberfruit.

Can't really comment on your other queries, as to answer I think it would be necessary to actually experience the conditions you mention.
The clutch operation is hydraulic.

If it’s an hydraulic clutch the push rod between the back of the pedal and master cylinder should (could) be adjustable for length. That would enable you to move the pedal itself “down” a bit!

To make any clutch smoke you have to give it some pretty serious abuse!! Try just lifting the pedal up slowly and allow the anti stall to do its job. That way you won’t burn the clutch out

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
