98 neon clutch fork slop Sign In

I have a 98 Neon 2.0 5sp. For sometime(4-5 months) it's had a little bit of creep with the clutch in but here lately it's gotten worse especially in reverse. Went to the store and by the time I got home it was grinding into gear so I avoided all the stop and go go I could.I decided to change the clutch cable,ok easy enough. When I went to reattach the new one to the fork, the fork just flopped back and forth and a little side to side. Once the cable was hooked to the fork it absolutely would not pull back so I could at least attempt to seat the end of the cable in the bell-housing. Confused yet?

Confuses the heck out of me to,lol. OK though ,the clutch pedal would have to be all the way to the floor. As in mashed into the carpet and it looks like it flattened a piece of 1" or so tube steel that's a stop. Factory? Also very touchy as in no play or free travel(easy to kill it). This morning I had my son bump the ignition while I watched the fork(cable insertion end) and it just flopped. Yes neutral and E brake.
When I WAS driving the car I didn't hear or feel anything at all, except obviously the trans grind into gear.

Sorry. In the OP I forgot to mention the Neon has 200,05 K.

If this has no free play in the pedal, you may have a worn clutch disc. Gary

Thanks for the reply. Worn clutch or broke(how I don't know) I basically know jack about front wheel drive.It bothers me the the cable end of the fork or spoon flops back and forth with no resistance at all. Clutch or spoon or pivot ball I guess it comes out huh?

Yes, your disc may be worn as well. Gary
