Default Clutch Issue

This is my problem. I noticed today. When i push in my clutch an slowly let the pedal up it gets to a point where you feel it grab. But here is the weird part. At this point i can let off the gas pedal an the car will coast on its own. just like an auto in drive with out stepping on the gas. What the hell is wrong with my clutch?

What speed(s) & gear(s) does it do this? I'm thinking normal engine idle, but that depends on how fast you mean by "coast."

That sounds pretty normal to. I've had MTs in a few of my old vehicles and I could do that. Did it never happen before?

Not that i can remember. I might need to get my clutch pedal adjusted though. Ever since the stage 1 was put in i don't have to push the pedal down far at all before it catches.. An sometime the clutch pedal seems to loose pressure. it happened awhile back an i had to pump the pedal a couple of times before the pressure came back...

Yeah. Definitely get it checked out, shouldn't have that variability, especially if it's fairly new.
