POWER TRAIN

3/27/2015 - SYCAMORE, IL
WENT TO GO START THE CAR, PUSHED IN CLUTCH AS NORMA, STARTED FINE, BUT WHEN I WENT TO GO PUT THE CAR IN GEAR, IT WOULDNT GO. I LIFTED THE CLUTCH AND IT WAS STUCK ON THE FLOOR. I HAD TO MANUALLY LIFT IT UP WITH MY HAND. WHEN I STARTED IT AGAIN IT WAS FINE. THEN WHEN I AM DRIVING IT DOES NOT GO UP ALL THE WAY IT DROPS ABOUT 2 INCHES AND STAYS WHICH GRINDS THE CLUTCH AND CAUSES PREMATURE WEAR!
