Default Clutch not disengaging?

Has anyone heard of this before?

I was approaching the high way last night and went to downshift around a corner, and I couldnt get it into any gear. I rolled to the side of the road, where I tried shifting again. I turned the car off and back on again, and it wouldnt let me shift. I pumped the clutch I tried everything. If I turned the car off and put it into gear, and, with the clutch pedal still depressed, start the car, it launches and stalls. It sounds to me like the clutch is not disengaging. I'm not sure how that could happen, only if the fluid boiled or if there were water in it...

Could also explain why my car has felt sluggish, if the clutch hasnt been completely disengaging. Any takers?

Is this still the stock clutch or has it been changed? Did you remove the factory clutch delay valve? In other words, has anything been done tot he car recently that comes anywhere near messing with the clutch system?

Take a look at the clutch reservoir. Is it low? If it is then you most likely have a leak somewhere. Take a look at the connections, the hose running to the slave cylinder, and the end of the slave cylinder to see if any fluid is leaking out.

While you're in there looking at the slave cylinder grap on (sorry, old joke) to the end of the TOB fork that the slave cylinder presses against and give it a wiggle. Does it flop around?

Default seized clutch disc

your clutch disc could be seized on the input shaft. I had that happen to me.

More than likely your clutch fluid diden't boil. Since your fluid is never in contact with a direct heat source. (like brake fluid in the brake system is directly in contact with the caliper, heating the fluid) I think your foot would fall off from pumping before you boiled your clutch fluid. That being said, It is more possable that as above stated, your clutch disc could be seized on the imput shaft, low fluid, leak, problem with the TOB, or maby the master or slave cylinder...
Just some proscess of elimination for you...
