Default 2005 Pt Gt HO - Low clutch release

Hi all,

Second post in the past week, having some really bad luck..

Driving today and the car was idling a little rough. Got to red light and I couldn't get it into gear on green. I eventually slammed it in there and took my foot off the clutch about 1cm and it started pulling forward. Had to rev match to shift to 3rd until I found a parking lot to pull into. Shifter cable and clutch have been replaced in the past 15000 miles.

Thinking slave cylinder but can't find any info on the turbo version and how it's fluid works. Any info is appreciated!

There is an adjuster under the dash. I think it's 8mm. Loosen it, pull the pedal up and lengthen where the adjuster is, them tighten.

This is the only free option and I recommend you try it first

very likely the pedal to rod attachment clamp is damaged, it's only cheap plastic and easily fails. there is a machined aluminum piece with a bronze bushing available from modern performance.

Well it's kind of a funny fix. After getting it towed and searching for hours of possibly causes, turns out there was air in system small clog in fluid lines?

Now back to oil cooler/cooler line leak :/ never ends with this car....
