Ok, this really confused me... tonight I go to start my car and the clutch pedal goes straight to the floor. I know it's around 10 degrees outside which makes me think the weather has something to do with it, but this happened the whole way on my 45min commute from work. Changing gears really isn't that nice and it almost seems as if the clutch is only partially disengaging. What is this? :confused I know it can't be good... any insight would be great.

P.S. All fluids under the hood are good and my car has 125k on the original clutch.

sounds to me like one of the clutch cylinders may be bad, master cylinder maybe?

Damn pressure plate... a friend of mine worned me about it a month or so ago, but I didnt think anything of it. Any of you know the damage to the bank to get someting like this fixed? I'm away at school now and really am not looking forward to it.

try doing the easy and cheap things first. start with bleeding the system with fresh fluid. if that doesnt work then check the slave and master cylinders and replace if necessary. i rather change a master cylinder rather than dropping a transmission.

I'd be up for bleeding the system if it wasn't 15 degrees outside and if I was at home where all the tools are. I am left with taking my car to a local shop and having them check it over. Would it be worth asking them to bleed the system or what? I don't want them looking all over the place because I don't have money to pay for labor like that. Thanks though. Keep the tips coming... I can't afford much downtime with my car.

yea if ur fluid is ok then u should just try bleeding it. check the slave and master cylinder . go inside and look to see if ur clutch pedal has fluid dripping down in there and open up the rubber on the slave cylinder to see if fluid is leaking.

if its the pressure plate sometimes its just worth it to replace the whole clutch because sometimes it will cost just as much.
