    I have a 1998 Honda CRV and I have had this same problem periodically since replacing the clutch master cylinder several years back. However, now when it is cold outside, the problem is MUCH worse. When the weather is warm, there isn't a problem. Now, it is below freezing at night here, so I can't get my car in gear. The clutch goes all the way to the floor with no resistance whatsoever. Any thoughts on what would make the clutch mess up only in cold weather?

You've lost the integrity of the clutch hydraulic system. Chances are that either there is air in the system, the slave cylinder or the master cylinder has failed.

First step is to bleed the clutch. See if that's a fix.

A slave cylinder is down on the transmission and is relatively easy to change (only two mounting bolts, one hard hydraulic line, and an accordion-boot covered plunger). When it's changed out, the clutch needs to be bled afterward. If it's a clutch master cylinder, that's where the clutch fluid reservoir is underhood (next to the brake fluid reservoir, just to the right as you face the front of the car). Removal requires undoing the lines coming out of the cylinder, removal of the locating/mounting bolts/studs, and disconnection of the plunger rod from the back of the clutch pedal, way up under the dash. Once it's replaced, bleeding the system is required, and you also may have to adjust the pick-up point of the clutch by turning the nuts on the plunger rod - it only takes a slight turn to change the pickup point dramatically, so go slow with that.

I'd do the slave cylinder first - it's more easily accessible, significantly less expensive, and quicker to change. If it's not a fix, don't feel too badly about changing it since it's only about a $25 part and it is prone to failure, so at the very least, you've eliminated a potential problem down the road. If the slave is not a fix, I'd change the master.

The clutch might be a hydraulic system. When it's leaking oil the pedal sticks to the floor and has to be pulled back manually. Because it's designed to be fail safe, it still works but only for some time till all the oil has leaked out.

The burning smell might be clutch oil dripping on the exhaust - meaning the seal on the clutch servo is leaking oil.

There are repairkits for clutch servo's - usually it's suggested to replace the cylinder seal on the clutch pedal also.

Started my truck this morning..it was stalling out 2-3 times.. then the cluch pedel went to the floor. pulled it back up with my foot. now it is working fine. ?


Sounds like your clutch master cylinder, or slave cylinder or actuator seals failed. Most likely the actuartor. Check the clutch lines for fluid leaks. It could probably happen again and you might not be so lucky this time.
