The only adjustment is for the pedal itself. There is a master cylinder at the top of the pedal that makes the pressure which travels thru the metal line to a rubber hose to a metal line which goes to the slave cylinder which is what actually pushes the clutch rod in the transmission. Sounds to me like your problem is in the Master cylinder part. It is like the brake master cylinder, there is a rod with rubber cups on it, and it sounds like the edges of the cup folded over backwards and hung up inside the cylinder, when you forced the pedal back up they folded back the right way, and now they are **** up a little making them not want to push as easy. This problem will happen again, so You better start pricing a new clutch master cylinder. From what I saw while researching this It looks like you can buy the master and slave cylinder as a set. If any pieces of the master cylinder rubber cups came off during this they may work their way thru the system to the slave cylinder and cause problems there as well. The reason behind thinking its the master and not the slave is, if it were the slave that hung up the pedal would have come back up since it has a spring on it.

What does it mean by bleeder .I mean how to bleed the clutch slave cylinder ?


JUst open the clutch slave bleeder valve a little until drips. Let somebody push the clutch pedal. You will
observe the clutch fluid flow initially with bubbles. Stop pushing the clutch pedal upon observing solid flow of the clutch fluid, and close the bleeder valve fast and tight. Bleeding the fluid is releasing the air inside the fluid line going to the clutch master. This in effect gets your clutch good order.

You don't need to change your clutch!
All you need to do is replace a simple shaft which can be done by any mechanic!
Cost you much less!

Sounds like air has gotten into the hydraulic clutch system, or it is low on fluid from a failed master or slave hydraulic clutch cylinder or connecting line between the master and slave cylinders.
