I guess I should clarify myself. A while back my clutch, or so everybody thought, was giving me some problems. Initially it was hard shifting into third gear, then third gear just disappeared. Next went fifth and first gears. I visually inspected the shift and select cables at the shifter and noticed something wrong with the selector cable. However, several friends said that wasn't the problem and were sure that it was my clutch that needed replacing.
Well one week and $400 later I still had the same problem. So I r&r'd the selector cable myself and the problem was gone. All gears, shifts great, no problem.
Well now I have another problem. A friend was driving my car the other night and upon returning home he said your clutch pedal is stuck to the floor. After I inspected the whole system the one and only thing I found was that the master cylinder was empty. Nowhere, at any connection, on any line is there any leak or sign there of.
I filled the master cylinder and even bled the lines yet I can not get any pressure at the pedal whatsoever. The pedal will hold in the upright position yet once pressure is applied it "snaps" to the floor and stays there. Would I be safe in guessing that it's the master cylinder that's shot even though when bleeding it appears to be functioning correctly?
