Question about 1997 Pontiac Sunfire
Check Your Clutch Fluid It Just Like Checking Your Brake Fluid In The Engine Compartment. If Its Low You May Have Got Air In The Line Which Will Cause The Clutch To Feel Empty. Make Sure Its Full Then Get In And Push It 3 times and hold then get out and check it again seeing if its emptied the reservoir. Keep Adding until the clutch feels good again. make sure that after doing so there isn't any dripping off the bottom of the car which would indicate the line need to be repaired.
Next If The doesn't do it with the car off push the clutch very slowly and listen for any kind of suction sound near your feet. sometimes it leaks around the pedal. If you dont have any fluid on the floor board then all should be well.
Then fallow the line all the way to the transmission looking for fluid.
It is pretty easy to find as it doesn't dry.
Most vehicles use dot 3 brake fluid but your vehicle may differ check your clutch reservoir cap for specifications on fluid.
if it does take brake fluid do not spill it on your paint as it will take it down to the bare metal in no time.
I hope this helpful and look forward to hearing your results if you need more help.

Sounds like your clutch is on its way out, it might be worth checking into a garage to determine if you need a new one, alternatively you can get a mechanic to adjust the clutch cables underneath the car to try and reduce the amount of play you're experiencing in the clutch.
