We recently had this problem with a Caddy CTS-V, and it turned out to be the master cylinder. It did the exact same thing as what you are describing. Bob

This is just a dumb question but it almost sounds like the rod from your shifter to the trans is not moving. Could you lift up the shifter boot or take it off and shift the gears and have a friend look up through and make sure its moving the gears in the trans? Put the car back up and while its ups have someone grab ahold of the rear wheels and turn them engaging and disengaging the clutch and shifting to see if tension or anything unsmooth is felt. Hope this helps

It's obvious that you are not getting any power to the rear wheels.

Can you put the car into gear and still push it while its parked, if so you have something broke in the drive line.

You'll need to drop everything and check it out.

Torque tube - grab each side and make sure it spins the other side.

Tranny - Put in gear and make sure it spins the main shaft.

Sounds to me like you broke something, also check the rear.

Yeah could be the torque tube internals, sometimes in ultra high mileage and/or high power/racing situations a torque tube bearing can sieze up.

Yes, I was indeed talking about the clutch master cylinder. Your "pedal got stuck to the floor the gears go in without having to press the pedal but goes no where" description is the same problem we had. Bob
