I might say that, again, this ng proves to be a valuable resource! Well, the fellow from AAA who came to tow me to the service center took a look under the hood. Indeed the brake fluid reservoir was low; we filled it up, and he then noticed the line to the slave had not ruptured perhaps, but more or less pushed off the pipe. However, even before the line was reattached, as after, the pedal would always come back up - just no resistance on the way down. I've thought a bit more about the recent days prior to the failure, and two items stick out: 1st, there was a little give, perhaps an inch, when beginning to depress the pedal; and 2nd, a slight whine/low squeak happened several times when accelerating at a lower-than-normal gear (though only a few times). I'm thinking that this is NOT the clutch itself, else it'd been easy as pie to shift gears, just hell to keep it IN gear. Am I completely wrong? Stephen Goodman * The free Loop of the Week!
