Clutch pedal goes to the floor?
I know we've covered the clutch-pedal-bushing issue for pedals that go all the way to the floor, and but how about one that goes to the floor... and STAYS THERE?!
I just got done with the clutch job this weekend, my wife helped me bleed the clutch and it went into all gears, so I called it good. But now twice, the pedal has gone all the way to the floor, and stays right there! I had to flick it up with my toe, and on the next pedal stroke, it was fine. Fortunately, both times it happened at a stop.
Did I miss some air in the system somehow? I followed the standard bleeding procedure (pushing the slave cylinder to force the fluid and air back up the line), which seemed to work, but if it happens mid-shift while on the road, it might be an issue! Any suggestions?
