Is my clutch burned out?? - 97 Nissan Maxima Sign In

Please help!! Recently bought a stick shift 97 Nissan Maxima V6; that hadn't been driven or started in about a year & a half. After having it checked out we were told it needed minor things; new alternator, new battery, tune up, etc. So we did all of that and had it smogged..it Failed!..w/ 3 codes... 1) O2 Sensor Fault 2) Knock Sensor 1CKT Malfunction. 3) Misfire detected -Cylinder3.

Besides a lil' hesitation on start up... car was running good. Then one day I had trouble going up a hill. It felt as if it wasn't grabbing the gear and didn't have power. Also, if I put in 1st & let go of clutch pedal the car doesn't turn off or even hesitate. It got worse and worse and now I can't go anywhere because it got scary to drive...(One day i was at an intersection & the light turned green, it took me until the light turned yellow to get through the intersection). Frown

Is my clutch burned out or can it have anything to do with the Cylinder3 misfiring? Please help. Thanx in advanceSmile

Sounds like two separate issues and your clutch is toast.

We`would need exact code numbers, not someone's interpretation of them.
