From another forum:

From The Owner: "The clutch got stuck down after shifting into 5th. I got it back up with my foot but it pushed right back. The car stayed in gear though. Pulled over and couldn’t force to neutral, so it conked out. Got under pedals to try to see what was up. Daughter noticed smoke, popped hood and small fire was right behind where the clutch is. The rest is in the pics"

Wow! Really strange about the clutch and getting stuck in gear. Curious to see where this goes.

Have a full investigation on it and there’s no reason why it happens to you! If it is defective then every Dark Horse or Mustang needs to know why this happened!

We hope you’ll get a new one soon!'

Also keep us posted of your result here with us!

Glad no one was hurt.
I hope someone can figure out what caused this as I have a 6spd also, and I really don't want my DH to blow up on me.

You cant make this sheet up...In 2024 a clutch that is stuck on the floor...C5 and C6 Vettes used to do this when driven hard (at high rpm) for a period of time creating air bubbles in the hydraulic system the pedal on the floor...Could get it out of gear only by letting off the throttle getting torque of the gears and thus getting back to neutral...Dont ask me how I know...LOL Quality is definitely Job 1...Not ! The insurance will take care of it...! Thanks for sharing...
