Hi Everyone, In a complete pickle here!!
In march I installed a new xtreme clutch/lightweight flywheel, koyo release bearing/oem slave cylinder and braided clutch line to my 350z.
it has done 2500 miles since then, all the miles have been relatively easy to run everything in etc.
Car was going great until saturday.
On way home gear change started to get a bit 'resistant' it was getting tough to push it into each gear. And then at a stop it became impossible.
Clutch in, and nope not accepting the gear. No grind etc etc.
Car was sitting still, no handbrake etc
car was def noisier pulling away just before it became impossible to drive.
Then weirdest part was when the car was at standstill, clutch in, when it wouldn't go into gear, but as I tried to push it into first, the clutch still in, the car began to start to creep forward.
turned car off. got the gear shift into first with clutch in, when to start and the car bumped forward on the starter motor with the clutch in.
Then when I put car back into 'neutral' and switched off engine, released the clutch, something seemed to free up, and i could deject gears etc ok again and car was 'drivable'
Clutch pedal was very stiff though and also small clunk 1/2 way up pedal travel.
It's off to mechanic this thursday to drop the gearbox to inspect the release bearing, clutch and flywheel etc etc.
BUT has anyone come across this or something like it before and shed some thoughts or light???
I fear it's inside the gearbox, but as mentioned it was driving and selecting gears ok after something free'd up again.
Any help, thoughts or experiences welcome.
