    I'm having the same problem with my 2001 Kia Sephia. recently now, when i shift into gear the clutch pedal goes down but it would not spring back up as it once normally do, now in order to get the clutch pedal up i have to literally pull the clutch pedal up using the top side of myfeet to lift it back into position so i can shift again.l

    Clutch stick when the weather gets hot for my 2000 Kia Sephia 5 speed too.... and it works great with no problem if the weather temperature is below 70 degrees..... Although the posts here might be old, I wonder if the proposal by markander199 solved the problem by others? Thank you!

There is a spring on the pedal up under the dash, if this has come undone then the pedal may not be able to come back up to the normal position. The spring connects directly to the pedal and to a bracket under the dash.

If its a fluid clutch check your fluid level for a cable clutch also check the clutch arm is engaging properly it may need an adjustment on the box if its cable the cable might need a lube the clutch may be ok just need to eliminate some possible causes if its all engaging properly try taking off slowly in 3rd 4th or 5th if it slips then its usually the clutch

I have a 99 Kia Sephia and it will not move in any gear the clutch seems to be engaging and disengaging but the transmission will not spin the wheels in any gear

It sounds like a bad clutch. It is the clutch if you can change gears with the clutch out and the engine running.

Clutch is sticking

More than likely the slave cylinder on transmission is leaking,< Hydrolic plunger that atttaches to clutch yoke > or possibly the master cylinder that operates it,< plunger sticking >. inspect them to find source of problem.If the master cylinder is low on fluid then there is a leak and slave cylinder most likely source.
