    ...i noticed the other night that the pressure on my clutch was almost nill, that i can push the pedal down easily with my finger. ...I didn't think much of it, i got in it this morning and same deal. I parked it and left it in reverse at school, and when I come back out I turn it on and the engine is chuggin n about to stall...my clutch is stuck halfway out.


    any tech help available here?


    ...i figure its either that my clutch is burnt out <the syncroes on the tranny have been fucked for awhile> or that the fluid for the clutch is gone.

    sounds like a fucked throw out bearing or pressure plate.

    It could be the throwout bearing or pressure plate, but before you go pulling the tranny to look make sure your clutch master/slave cylinder are in working order and your have fluid to them. Maybe try bleeding them. If none of that fixes the problem then you might need to pull the tranny to diagnose.
