2008 Infiniti g37s. When driving on highway in 6th gear and downshifting to 5th gear (going 50mph) the clutch pedal drops to the ground like a loose noodle and I cannot shift to 5th. I then have to pump the clutch pedal to get any 'weight'/firmness back to the clutch. The clutch also now feels horribly soft when driving regular. This just happened this weekend. any ideas?

it sounds like you have a fluid leak in your clutch pedal line or slave cylinder , you will need to have it inspected for leaks and fluid level .
c'mon Roy! I'm counting on you!
I would start by inspecting fluid level for clutch
fluid level is good
ok if you can pump it up you must have a leak letting air into the system
but that only happens in 6th gear. Other than that, the constant pumping (between gears) keeps the clutch at 'decent' levels.
*correction* 6th gear = driving in 6th gear for a few minutes
the gear should not matter clutch works or not doesnt know what gear you are in
So this is relatively a minor issue?
could happen after sitting and will pump back up , I would have system blead out first to check for air in system
Sir! you have made me sleep peacefully tonight.
Sounds like this is not major issue
ok hope this helps , Thank you ROY!
