this happened to me, burnout.
i was leaving my house, got like into the neighborhood, i stop, i start gain and as i start the clutch is barley catching, i have to get a lot of gas for it to catch, so now i turn round and head home, i shift into thirs, bam clutch stays down. had to walk home and get towed.
