Question about 2006 Ford Fusion
At 70K miles, the clutch pedal in my 2006 ford fusion, 2.3L sticks to the floor when shifting from first to second gear; had to use my foot to pry the pedal back up. The fluid was checked shortly after that incident; it was very low.
Refilled using the prescribed dot-3 brake fluid and continued driving.
From stop to first gear, the clutch pedal would either stick to the floor or retract to only 1/2 way. From second to third, same problem, but not as often. From third on up, the shifting and pedal work is fine.
I heard moaning when shifting last week; and prior to that, one day, smelled like something burning briefly (came through the air vents), then it went away.
What is going on? Any ideas?
We had the same problem with ours. Its the clutch master cylinder.

I believe your pressure plate is broken and at a minimum will have to be replaced along with the clutch disk.

SOURCE: burning smell
The sulphur smell is the result of the emmisions control system. I have an 06 Expedition with the exact same engine and emmisions system as yours. When the engine is cold, you don't smell that sulphur smell, but as soon as the engine gets to operating temperature, the exhaust gasses smell sulphury. Nothing wrong with your ride - they all do that. The dealership sometimes spray the underbody with some type of rubber to protect the vehicle against rust. This rubber stuff sometimes get sprayd on the exhaust as well and then you will smell "burning tires" after driving the vehicle. This will go away after a few thousend miles though.

SOURCE: Stuck in 5th gear
That just recently happened to me. If your stick wont move into any of the gears, then you need a clutch. But if you can shift into the gears but dont go anywhere, then you need a new transmission.
