    When clutch is pushed down, it doesnt always come back up, it has to be manually brought back up with your foot.

Same thing happened to me, but like atomx12, it always just turns out to be the floor mat.

Believe it or not, the floormat on my 2000 Sunfire will sometimes slip forward and hold the clutch pedal down against the floor. It truly feels like a mechanical problem, but simply pull the floormat away and the pedal pops right back up!

Why is my clutch sticking down? how do i fix it?

You may have a few things going on here. First, you need to look under the dashboard where the clutch pedal contacts the pushrod. There is an adjustment screw/locknut. The pushrod should be making contact. If not, losen locknut and adjust then tighten locknut. Secondly, the clutch master cylinder may be low on brake fluid or worn out, lacking hydraulic assist. Third you may have a weak slave cylinder. If they never been replaced I recommend replacing them together. Hopefully the line that carries the fluid isn't leaking. If so it'll need replacing too. This sounds like a handful but for this vehicle it isn't. These parts won't even run you $100 total.

Clutch pedal

if fluid level was low and you add some more could have air in the system causing spongy pedal or clutch mastercylinder failing.

1999 pontiac sunfire clutch pedal stays down

The hydraulic clutch works much like the brake system, there is a master cylinder with a piston and spring that should keep the pedal up.
You may have to take the clutch master cyl off and inspect the internal parts.

What does a clutch pedal position switch do?

It tells the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) what position your clutch pedal is in (pretty much like the name implies). The PCM will not allow the starter to work unless the clutch pedal is in the down position. The purpose is to keep you from starting the engine with the clutch engaged so the vehicle doesn't jump forward and kill somebody when you twist the key.

I have a 2004 sunfire, it is a standard. when i switch from 3rd gear to 4th it makes a loud grind sound. it drives okay other than that, but what do you think it could be?

Does this noise only happen when switching between these two gears ? Also need to know how much play you have in the clutch pedal (push down on pedal, how far does it go down--free play?? plus when you release the pedal how far from the floor does it star to engauge ??) need to know these questions first before i can answer your question..ok..

I have a 96 sunfire & the clutch when depressed stayed depressed down to the floor! Do I have cheap options to fix it or what??

See if the pedal, itself isn't sticking. Next, see if your pedal operates a cable, linkage, or if it is hydraulic and uses a brake line.
(It sounds like a cable is broken)
