Q: Why would my clutch pedal be stuck on the floor in my 1999 Honda Civic

asked by on

The clutch pedal is stuck to the floor. It wont move and i cant change gears.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hello. The most common cause of a clutch pedal not returning to its upright position is a bad clutch master cylinder. When it fails internally it will no longer hold pressure which keeps it from returning up. It can also be caused by a clutch slave cylinder or a failure of the clutch itself.
