Only in hot weather, and only in stop-and-go traffic or around town (with frequent clutch use), the clutch pedal travel gradually increases until it's on the floor and changing gears is impossible. Clutch fluid was changed approx. 175,000 mi., no help. No leaks, fluid remains full. Fine in winter, regardless of amt. of clutch use! Appreciate any help -thank you!

Thank you for your prompt reply and help! As I've been out of work for a year, I wanted to have an idea where to start and what to expect BEFORE bringing it into my mechanic - and waiting for the bill! I'll make those suggestions to him.

Thanks again,
