Q: Clutch stays pressed down

asked by on

The clutch stays down when pushed.

The clutch works as part of a hydraulic system that is sensitive to leaks. Any leak along the lines, or failure of a seal in the clutch master cylinder, share the same symptoms. Have a mechanic confirm your situation and locate the faulty component with your clutch. Consider YourMechanic and avoid an unsafe condition.
