Hi im kevin is car manual or auto ? Any loss of power ?
Ok if its manual the engine management light will be unrelated to the clutch issues .the engine management light can come on for many reasons if theres no loss of power or obvious sympthoms its likely an emmissions related issue .the aa shouldgive you fault codes from diagnostic check.the clutch issue will be seperate .
Does pedal feel normal when it occurrs ?has clutch ever been replaced ?how many miles have you done ?
It sounds like mabye fluid needs changing and as you pump pedal it improves .i would have fluid changed first as its the cheapest option if not is suspect clutch pressure plate is weak causing clutch not to clear fully meaning clutch replacement will be needed
Correct the clutch fliud is brake fluid which is hydroscopic meaning it absorbs moisture .this over a period of time degrades fluid
