crime in the city.

Default Is it possible for a perfectly fine clutch to not grab during startup?

The Problem
So yesterday is when it all started, I drove 14 miles to a grocery store and got my items and left. The clutch was working fine no problems at all. Then I drove another 2 miles to pick up my grandma. I got to my destination picked her up and was ready to go. I went to start the car and nothing happened. I'm just guessing its a clutch problem because it sounds like how a car would start up if you didn't press down on the clutch where the seat belt light and all the other lights come on but the engine does nothing. I left it there for the night and went back in the morning to fix it. Upon arrival I went to start it up just to see what happens and it started first try.

Then today it happened again after a 9 mile drive from work to home. I stopped at a gas station to fill up and it would not start up. So I waited for 2 hours till it finally started up again.

I've been on the same clutch since July 4th of last year. During that time I had my flywheel resurfaced and a brand new exedy oem replacement clutch.

Anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

This doesn't have anything to do with the clutch itself, just the starter cutout switch connected to the pedal. Sounds like for some reason the circuit isn't being completed, which could be from something as simple as the floor mat being caught under the pedal. Yes it happens.

I should also mention once in a while when I try to start my car I get that noise the car makes when you keep turning the ignition after the car is on, that grinding type noise, would that be a circuit problem too?

You might need a new battery(?); look into that.

Any other suggestions? This is starting to become a really big problem, I am now sitting in my schools parking deck and it looks like this car isn't gonna be moving anytime soon. This car is a 95 L btw.
