Q: Clutch won't engage

asked by on

The clutch suddenly gave out when we were driving. It won't engage at all and just goes down to the floor when pressed. The car will still start and can still shift gears. What do you think it could be?

My car has 18500 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Sounds like the clutch disc has been burned out. You will need to replace the clutch, pressure plate, and release bearing. Have the vehicle serviced by a certified mechanic, they will be able to diagnose and fix your clutch issue.
