Q: Clutch pedal not returning

The clutch pedal won't return when I press it.

A: The clutch in your car is hydraulic. The we...

The clutch in your car is hydraulic. The weight from your leg when you push the clutch pedal transfers to the clutch master cylinder. It forces fluid through a hose to the slave cylinder. It in turn pushes a lever, that pushes the release bearing into the pressure plate, dis-engaging the clutch. The spring pressure from the pressure plate returns the pedal when you lift your leg. If there is a hydraulic leak or malfunction, the pedal stays down. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid reservoir. If it is empty, you have an external leak. If it is full, there may an internal leak in the clutch master cylinder. It's possible that the release bearing or pressure plate is to blame, but unlikely. A qualified mechanic from YourMechanic can help you identify what part is faulty and get you back on the road.
