Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi most chevy"s are fitted with a concentric slave thrust bearing. This normally creates hydraulic fluid leakage between engine block and gearbox bell housing if not so , check hydraulic pipe lines for leaks. bleed system and be certain hydraulic pressure maintains .If problem persists check and replace clutch master and slave or might be a rare case of a faulty pressure plate.

A clutch pedal not springing back is almost always an indication that there is air in the system. Bleeding out a clutch is a tedious endeavor to say the least.
I suggest you open up the bleeder screw & gravity bleed the clutch.(This will take a long time as well!)

SOURCE: no clutch response
I would check for a restriction between the Clutch Master Cyl. & the Clutch Slave Cylinder. I don't know if it's cold where you are but I've experienced a few Clutch slave cylinders that seemed to freeze, leak out & then continue to leak until replaced. Undoubtedly due to moisture in the systems. You could have a helper assist you in bleeding the slave cylinder, if you notice resistance at first, there could be something in the line from when the previous Master cylinder went bad that just got lodged in the system & didn't show up until now.
If you have no pressure whatsoever, lodging isn't the issue, attempt to bleed the system & then look for leaks at the boot of the slave cylinder. This will also confirm that the Clutch Master Cylinder is functioning properly.

If the car hasn't been driven for a while it could be corrosion on the fork but I think that is unlikely. I think you are right about the release bearing being jammed in the spring. If the truck has quite high mileage, it probably means a clutch job.

I too am having problems with my 2006 GV clutch master cylinder. I noticed gradually over several weeks the gears and clutch pedal were degenerating and then the cluth gave completely. My mechanic took a look around and said the cylinder is the cheapest one he has ever seen, it's just a piece of plastic apparently! Is going to hopefully get the part this week or next, though he said as it's such a cheap and nasty part its likely it will happen again in the future. Not happy!

SOURCE: i put a slave cylinder
I have always found the slave bleeding instructions inadequate. The way they design the slave with the bleeder away from the piston makes the standard bleeding ineffective. Unbolt the slave and put a wrench on the bleeder nut. Hold the slave in your left hand with your thumb over the pusher. Open the bleeder with your right hand and push the piston into the slave. Close the bleeder, release the piston, and repeat until air is out. This is essentially a bench bleed on the car.
