Exclamation Gated Gallardo Clutch Issue

Hi all, needed some help. Have a very weird situation with my G. Had lost my key for the vehicle after driving it 4 weeks ago. Parked it, sat outside in the elements for 4 weeks. Found the key yesterday - went to drive it, and the clutch is not engaging. When the car is off, you can push the car thru all the gears, but as soon as you start the car - push the clutch (feels normal), but trying to put the car in gear and it won't go - its like forcing it but won't move. If you shut the car down, and put it in gear, then try to start it with foot on the clutch - if jumps like you don't even have your foot on the clutch. Clutch was replaced by a forum member about 4000 miles ago.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Your gated clutch was replaced 4,000 miles ago? Just curious how many miles were on it when they replaced it?

Could be the clutch has some corrosion / rust on it and is stuck to the pressure plate and flywheel. Not sure the best way to fix that with it in the car.

Check clutch fluid
Check slave cylinder is moving under the car
Check for leaks
Could be throw out bearing, pressure plate perhaps?

As stated above, you most likely have a leak in the hydraulic clutch system.

Had the exact same problem on another car and it was exactly what paintballrefjosh said: the clutch disk was frozen to the pressure plate. I tried everything, included some not good things like towing it and popping the clutch and putting it on my lift (I used two floor jacks to maneuver it on the lift), starting it and working the clutch.

It was a simple suction, not corrosion. Just like suction cups work. It is amazing how much suction force is generated.

I called the company that made the clutch and they said it is common. The solution was dirt simple: remove the inspection cover and insert a small putty knife between the clutch and pressure plate. Took me 5 minutes.

I don't know though how easy it is to get at in the G.

Was the throw out bearing replaced with a new one when the previous replaced the clutch?

Thanks for all your responses. Fluid level was good, bearing was replaced with clutch with a newer 560 type. Took the vehicle to my friends shop locally and they are going to look at it hopefully tomorrow. Will keep you all posted. And of course for fun it threw a CEL today too 😭
