Push to the floor to start. Mine is different.

I'm stumpped. I have a 1996 with a Zf5 manual trans. It has the same issues that many others are having. Push to the floor to start, can't shift into gear without shoving the stick and clutch catches with the slightest release of the pedal. I've read the threads and watched the videos about the plastic bushing.

After looking at mine I've discovered that mine looks diferent than what everyone explains. Maybe I'm missing something.

It has a large spring (about 1.25") that sits on the firewall and on two pivot points on the pedal linkage arm. I don't see arm that has the bushing at all.

I'm going to take a picture and try to post it soon to clarify my poor description.

Any ideas?

Matt.

What you're seeing is the spring mechanism directly below the pedal. Look to the right of that, on the other side of the brake pedal. That's where the arm, bushing and pushrod are. The clutch M/C is to the _right_ of the brake pedal.

Could very well be the clutch master cylinder rod bushing (it's the usual culprit). Make sure that the bushing (and rdo end) are in good shape and not ovaled-out. Also take a look at the brake/clutch pedal box mainshaft bushings as they can get sloppy too. Cheers!

So a buddy wanted a ride in it yesterday, locked it n 4 wheel dig bout two miles down the road at random rpm sounded like the turbo was sucking hard... it was cold out or would it be something with the tranny I'm stumped, like throw out bearing.... or something does it in neutral with clutch fully disengaged...

It's a little hard to parse your run-on sentence, but we'll venture a guess -- is it making a "whooosssshh" noise? Do you get some power loss when it happens? Does it seem to go away when you give it a lot of go-pedal? That would be your EBPV - exhaust back pressure valve. Closes when cold to help warm the engine up faster. A lot of folks decommission theirs; you can wire it open, or just gut it.

Yep, that's it. Do a search here (and/or on the other PSD sites, if you're a member) on "EBPV"; you'll find threads on how to decommission it.
