clutch pedal goes to floor; clutch won't disengage!
« on: September 19, 2017, 01:24:18 AM »
WWWWHHHHYYYYY?????? The week before the Rally???????
I was driving during the week end, and suddenly, depressing the clutch pedal doesn't disengage the clutch, i.e. the car still motors along with the clutch pedal down.  Had to do some fancy speedshifting to get home; and shut the ignition a couple of times at traffic lights to stop.  Any suggestions?  (other than to get rid of it--I love driving it; it always adjusts my attitude)  There does not appear to be leakage in the engine bay.  Haven't been under car yet.  Vehicle is a '94 Base Miata.  Maybe should be expected; after all, car is 23 years old with 160 k-miles.  I just spent a bundle @ Addicted Performance to replace a burst coolant hose running from the rear of the valve cover (area) to the oil filter manifold.

Time to replace the clutch hydraulic system (master&slave cylinders and line). This shop has a good reputation with many miata people. http://www.jrjautoservice.com/

Master and slave seem to be routine maintenance.
