P.O.S. cluch problem

i was driving and shifted into neutral to coast, my clutch goes all the way down to the floor board wont come up. so idk what to do, then it comes up and is hard as a rock so i cant push it down. i end up driving home without using a clutch, which was not exciting. what happened to my clutch?

I'm not an expert but it sounds like a slave cylinder problem or you could have an air bubble in the assembly somewhere. I had a similar experience of driving without a clutch in another car

Ditto on possibly being the slave cylinder if you had to pull the clutch back up off of the floor... or clutch pedal linkage issue

My dad said something about there being fluid? Idk. But he was hoping it was a cyl. Or something in the hydraulics so he didn't have to take the tranny out. Driving wothout a clutch=no fun. With my luck I hit a few red lights

I had my slave cylinder fail once on my Yoda years ago and had to do the same thing to get it home with speed shifting. Had a couple of grinds, but made it.

I'm thinking that if you were able to shift it, chances are its hydraulic or linkage vs the transmission itself.

You won't know if you will need a new clutch until you take it apart. It could be a couple of different things to cause what you are describing. I had the EXACT same experience a few years ago and it ended up being the small "pivot clip" that attaches to the shift lever inside the transmission bell housing. Good news is that it only cost about $1.50 from the dealership, bad news is that you still have to remove the transmission.

Word. My dad and I looked at it, it wasn't the slave. He said I might need a new clutch, but ill tell him about that clip thing

my old honda did this twice, once was a slave cylinder , (not a big deal)

The second time was complete transmission failure. Which pretty much totaled the car out.

I hope its not the tranny. I don't think it was the tranny because I was still able to shift
