On a 2000 Ford Focus my clutch is stuck in the pedal won't go down

The focus clutch system is hydraulic therefor, if no movement is possible at all it is most likely that there is something at the pedal causing this. Get down there with a good light and look if the pedal swivel pin did not come out or is partially out, a foreign object that got stuck in the top movement area of the pedal ect. If there is nothing found it can be the clutch master cylinder that need repair/ overhaul.

Ford Bantam rocam Clutch: How do I bleed the clutch?

Clutch bleeding on hydraulic slave cylinders are done in the exact same method as regular hydraulic brakes. If the slave cylinder has a separate reservoir, make sure it is above "MINIMUM" at all times. If it does not have a separate reservoir, then it works together with the master cylinder for the brakes, make sure that one is above minimum too. Pump the clutch pedal a couple of times (note you will rarely feel any resistance in the pedal), hold the pedal down, and have someone open the bleeder valve on the slave cylinder. Close it when no more fluid comes out with pressure, then rinse and repeat until the clutch pedal feels ok.

This should be a Warranty repair. Some of the clutches use a hydraulic assist which multiplies the force of your footstep to make the clutch easy to operate. Sometimes it is called a "slave cylinder" and when the fluid leaks out you get no assist. Take it in, you may get a new clutch if the slipping is not cured by replacing the cylinder.

Clutch pedal has came up and their is no resistance when pressing foot down on the pedal

Sounds like the clutch cable needs to be tightened up. They are adjustable. Usually where the clutch cable meets the side of the transmission.You'd want to tighten the nut to shorten the cable.

Or it could be a hydraulic clutch. Check the hydraulic fluid or the brake fluid. Some cars use the brake fluid for the clutch. Could of sprung a leak in the clutch line.

Clutch problems

if the clutch is still working then it could be the clutch spring which has come off or snapped because it is very old. some cars have hydraulic clutch systems but i would think that yours is a spring. look in the footwell up the pedal and you may see a spring which has come off.
