Hey,

LuRu just called me and she's stuck at the Home Depot because the clutch on her Ford Ranger won't depress at all. Any suggestions? She'd love to just get home (we're only a few blocks away) so she can do stuff while waiting for AAA.

Is the pedal sloppy & loose, or stuck in position? If loose, she might be able to top off the clutch master cylinder (under hood, in front of column) with fluid and get enough clutch back to make it home.

Thank you Professor, I think the check ball was stuck. When the tow truck dude tried it, in miraculously worked again, making me just seem like some weirdo who enjoys hanging out in the home depot parking lot at noon in the hot sun for an hour for no apparent reason. I am going to take it in tomorrow and see if I can get the clutch cylinder flushed upon the advice of my dad. I am glad you have diagnosed the same thing. Yah! car dudes rock!!!
