Default Clutch Pedal to the Floor

Have a 2007 C6 6 speed with about 13K on it. No mods except K&N filter.

I was almost done packing for Carlisle and wanted to move the car to give it a last minute wash when the clutch went to the floor and won't go up. I heard a very small "click" when it went to the floor and the car was NOT started. There is no fluid on the ground, or under the hood, or under the car. The clutch fluid is black, but doesn'teem abnormal. All I wanted to do was release the clutch so the car would roll closer to the water hose.

Now it starts in gear and I had a heck of a time getting it out of gear. It will now start in neutral but has a hard time and smells like clutch.

Called road side assistance. They picked up the car within 1 hour and the dealer will look at it sometime tomorrow AM. I hope it's something simple so I can still make Carlisle!!!! Very frustrating, why the night I'm leaving?

Any ideas on what went wrong? Please help!

Thanks,

Chuck M

More than likely a simple drain & refill of the hydralic clutch fluid will fix this problem. All us guys that have modded out car experience this all the time, as HP increases, heat increases, fluid degrades, pedal sticks to the floor. BTW, there's not a simple way to drain the fluid.

This is a very widespread problem, especially with people who have added power. Please, ask some hard questions with the dealer & post the answers, everyone would appreciate the feedback. There's another thread running right now addressing pretty much the same question w/ as of yet nothing for an answer.

Thanks for the response. The dealer is looking at it once the tech finishes a small service job this morning. There are two techs that specialize in Corvettes there. I'll keep everyone posted. I'll also ask the GM people when I get to Carlisle about this and post the responses. If the car can't be ready by tomorrow AM, I'll have to take the SUV(yech).

This happened very often with my 2 SS's (H/C w/100 shot) and I got so sick of it. I stuck with the A6 this time. Just get familiar with bleeding it every 6 months and hope for the best. They really need a better system than the current slave. I have a buddy with a C6Z and his pedal gets stuck on speedshifts into 3rd with only 8K miles on the car. Your car should only need a flush and refill/bleed.
