I was just going to get a valve cover gasket because I wanted to take a look at the valve seals. So I'm driving about 10 miles to the parts store and maybe 2/3 of the way there the clutch starts engaging really low. So I just tried to think of the best way home with the least times to use the clutch. I was able to shift a couple times without using the clutch between 2 and 3 but at one point I had to use 1st and couldn't get it in. Some people came from a nearby house and pushed me down a hill and I got it back into 2nd, gave a wave of thanks, and went on. On a straight section of road I took a look down past the clutch pedal and sure anough, fluid is coming down all over the inside of the firewall. Just one left turn at a stopsign to get on my road. Well, a car was coming so I just had to push the breaks down and stall it out. Ok, what to do? I stick it in 1st and turn the key, I lurch across the road and it starts. Slam shift to 2nd and make it home. What fun! Took the other car to the parts store, got a new master cylinder and got it installed before dark. Whoohoo!
