Question about 1997 Mazda MX-6
I can lift it back up with my foot and then it will work. It will shift the car but it is happening more and more frequently. It feels spongy. Its really weird to see your clutch pedal slowly going to the firewall every few minutes and you cannot shift. I have to lift it back up and then shift.....arrggghh
Probably the clutch fluid? I've never checked it, anyone know where/how to do this?
It sounds like a fault with the clutch master cylinder or possibly the slave cylinder at the gearbox. With the age of the vehicle and the cost of the parts I'd recommend replacing both. This may not be something you want to tackle yourself, groveling around under the dash removing bolts for the master cylinder is not much fun, and clutch systems can be difficult to bleed up when they get air in them. I'd recommend taking it to a brake specialist (they do clutch work as well) and getting an estimate on costs before going ahead. Get a few estimates from a few garages to ensure that you are getting a good deal.
Hope this helps.

This just happened to me, 500 $ CDN to fix parts and labor + tow. Take it in before it leaves you stranded. Clutch cylinder or slave cylinder. I can't remember.
