Well I feel like a dufus. Turns out my clutch fluid was low - almost empty, in fact. Bleeding the system and refilling the fluid and I should be good to go. Guessing I have a tiny leak in the line somewhere, so I might replace the line over break if it does turn out to be a leak.

I would check your master and slave cylinders before I threw a line at it. It was pretty common on the 90's civics for them to be leaking very slowly, I'd imagine insights probably aren't much different in that regard.

That's pretty good news! No need to pull the trans out is always good news.
