Mein Auto: 95' E36 M3
Odd occurrence this morning.

I pushed in the clutch and it didn't engage all the way. When I let off just a touch the car shot out if the drive way like a car possessed. Ok it moved just a little before I let off the gas and it died.

I went to start the car again and the cloth was stuck to the floor. I pulled it up and started the car again. A once again it stuck. Now I'm in the street so I do it again and when I start the car it was as if nothing happened.

I'm thinking possible jealousy of the gokart because she's younger and lighter and i just bought a bunch o stuff to make it faster, but I'm taking any suggestions you guys might have.

Sounds like slave cylinder death.
