My independent mechanic believed a fluid line (utilizing the master brake fluid supply) was likely swollen, resulting in this condition. We replaced this line (which, after being exposed through a good deal of labor, did NOT appear swollen or damaged) as a precaution. The symptom reappeared after being run very briefly to wash the car and then returned to the garage. I am almost certain that, on this occurrence, the clutch pedal was in the “engaged” position and the car left in first gear. My mechanic thought it was fully possible that a leak in the one of the two (front or rear) cylinder resulted in the pedal being “pulled” back to the fully depressed position as fluids cooled while the car sat un-run for a few days.
What do you think? Where would you look?
Thanks very much. Pacman
