The master cylinder for the cluch needs to be replaced the clutch will still work for a while but as soon as enugh air gets in the system it will stop working because if fluid is getting out air is getting in
I believe you have a hydraulic clutch. You may be low on fluid in the master cylinder for the clutch. If it is low, it takes regular DOT3 brake fluid. After you fill it, you might have to drive it a day or two for it to recover.
Jack up the car with adequet support have someone work the clutch in and out,obseve the slave cylinder when the clutch pedal is realeased--is it free or hanging up -still tight then problem with the master or slave.If not then the clutch plate may be stickly on the splines when cold,
you need to bleed the clutch system.. have someone pump the clutch pedal three or four times, hold it down and release the bleeder valve( make sure the person holds the pedal down till after you tighten the bleeder valve back down) repeat this four or five times or till the clutch pedal feels like it did before.. good luck keith...
I have had the same problem it sounds like, I bought a Master cylinder for about 50 bucks, easily a 30-40 min job, just a few bolts and a pin behind the clutch pedal. The real problem looked like where the cylinder rod comes through the firewall it was rusted and thus grinding away at the gromet holding it in the firewall, hence leaking fluid all over your nice carpet, and possibly down the back of the clutch pedal, rusting it too.
