So here's the story. I'm about to leave for work this morning and I'm sitting in my car with it running. I park on an incline so I always have my parking brake up and throw it in gear. This morning as I'm sitting in the car with it running, I had the clutch pedal down all the way to the floor as I was finishing some texts...or so I thought. I start noticing a burning clutch smell coming from my heater vents. I com to notice the pedal wasn't all the way down like I thought. I quickly throw the car into neutral and let go of the pedal....the pedal is stuck where I left it thinking it was completely down. I pry it back, not sticking anymore and car runs fine the whoole hour to work.
I bled the clutch after work today in my bay just to try and help the crappy clutch grab point. On my way home, cruising in 5th gear I decide to test the clutch and see if it was slipping....it seemed like it was. Very slightly, but it felt like a car in snow....accelerates, slows downdue to bad traction. You all know the feeling. I try it again...floor it in 5th taking it up to 90mph from 80, same thing. ****!!!! the clutch is slipping. I know this for a fact because the second time I was testing...I heard a nice "grinding" noise I guess you could say as if the friction material (or whatever is left of it) was slipping past the flwheel.
Car can still drive fine, shifts normal, accelerates smoothly...as long as I'm not beating on it.
I just want to know what everyones opinion is...clutch is shot??? Or possible that it's just glazed over? I must mention that the grab point on the pedal is very low and you don;t feel any resitance until you're almost all the way down. Then yiou also feel resitance all the way to the floor. It doesn't ease off like usual when you pass the friction point.
Any help is greatly appreciated
