Default Need help plz 350z gear grinds

Hey guys just looking for a little input. I have a 2006 350z 6 speed. Was driving it absolutely fine no issue.. All of a sudden every gear was grinding as if the clutch was not working (the clutch was not old and still grabbed hard). As i would shift gears, each would grind unless I waited for the RPM's to fall and then it would shift into gear without a grind. I brought it to the mechanic and he said the clutch was completely gone and i also needed a new fly wheel? How could the clutch randomly be destroyed from normal driving? Could this be the master clutch cylinder and they are trying to scam me? Anyone? Thanks

Have you checked the fluid level of your clutch master? When was the last time you changed it?

BTW- if the clutch was "completely gone", you would feel quite a bit of slippage once in gear and accelerating. Going uphill or at WOT, you'll notice this slippage with a worn out clutch. Did any of these symptoms occur?

Thanks for the replies, the fluid level is fine but I have never changed it. I never experienced any slipping of this clutch, it grabbed low and never slipped. That is why i was a little dumbfounded when they told me that the clutch and possibly fly wheel was toast. Could this be a simple fix or adjustment?

Can you start the car in 1st with the clutch pushed in and foot on the brake or does it stall?

Yes, the clutch will engage without issue as long as the RPMs are low and not being revved without stalling. When driving i shift to neutral, wait for the RPM's to fall and then shift into gear without a problem.

If you rev it in 1st, with the clutch pedal pushed in does it try to pull you forward?

Master or slave would be my guess. What is not a guess is don't go back to that mechanic.....
