The spoongy feeling is a defective clutch slave cylinder. Generally a cluthc will not slip because of a pressure issue with hydaulics.

If the clutch is slipping with your foot off the pedal it defineately is time for a clutch job... Best bet is to get it inspected to be sure.

SOURCE: spongy clutch pedal

Depends on mileage.
If it's due to be changed, replace all parts, but I'd guess a hydrulic issue or adjustment problem.

SOURCE: my clutch fluid is leaking inside the car when I

I would look into a new master cylinder for the clutch. because the clutch itself has been replaced does not mean they also changed the clutch hydraulic system which has a master and a slave.

SOURCE: clutch pedal sticking

The clutch pressure plate might be weak in the manual transmission.

I wouldn't worry if it doesn't cause a problem in changing gears, until you have the clutch changed, if you ever get that far.

Clutch problem the clutch pedal won't return back UP, why ?

indicates no fluid in the system or air in the system
in a hydraulic it requires fluid to make the clutch disengage and also fluid to make the pedal return from the pressure of the pressure plate
if it is a cable clutch, replace the cable as the inner cable is breaking and jamming in the case

Where is my clutch pedal return spring located at and where do its attach to???? 2006 volvi? s40 2.4l

It shouldn't use a spring to return the pedal, it uses hydraulic pressure to return the pedal to the rest position. If the clutch pedal isn't returning, you could have an issue with the slave or the master cylinder for the clutch.

Is there a diagram of where the clutch return spring is on a 2008 Hyundia Santa Fe?

The clutch don't have spring to return. hydraulic pressure return the pedal. if you pedal go down to the flour and don't return you lost the pressure. First look in the reservoir for fluid. add DOT3 brake fluid and bleed the system. inspect for leak
Good luck

Clutch problem

I would think you have a hydraulic clutch, so there should be a return spring on the pedal or the master cylinder.

My pedals (clutch and brake) on my 1989 ford f250 xlt lariat engage when pressed but do not return to original location when no longer in use i have to pull up with the tip of my shoe how do i fix it

Hello, For the brake pedal it can be a Master cylinder problem. You would need to replace the Master Cylinder and flush the brakelines as the lines may be full of rust. It would not hurt to check your brakelines for signs of staining and wet spots.

The clutch on your model may have a return spring that is missing or weak. There is also spring tension on the throw-out bearing. You may need to adjust the clutch linkage to compensate for wear on the clutch disc. You want to adjust the freeplay so there is 1/4 to 1/2 inches of freeplay before the throwout bearing is touched.

Also check your pivot points for the pedal levers under the dash. Check your transmisson and motor mounts for movement which could cause binding. When you adjust the clutch there may be an Interlock switch for the starting circuit. Make sure this switch is working freely and that the clutch pedals' return is not held back because of this switch.

That about covers everything that moves on those two pedals. I hope my solutions are very helpful and you get your truck fixed.

Clutch sticking on 2000 pontiac firebird trans am. clutch comes halfway up but need to pull it up the rest of the way w/my foot.

There is actually a fix for this problem. There is no return spring for the clutch being that it is hydraulic. You need to take the master cylinder out and drill the return line an 1/8th of an inch. The reason why it sticks is because the return line is too small. All the fluid is backed up and once it is cleared, the clutch will return to normal. There is an article in GM High Performance magazine online that has the step by step instructions to fix it. Hope this helps.

Don't know where my return spring goes on my 71 firebird for the clutch.

You should have a heavy return spring under the dash on the pedal and a lighter one on the clutch linkage with one end hooking beside the rod pushing onto the clutch pivot. (some have a small hole for the spring) (The clutch pivot is the part going into the bell housing holding the bearing) and the other end hooking on something that will keep the pivot and bearing away from the clutch when you are not pushing the clutch pedal.
TIP. When sitting stopped for any length of time with the engine running......(and more important with heavy duty clutches)....put the vehicle in neutral and keep your foot OFF the clutch.
