Check to see if the pedal is on a hydraulic system or cable system. If it is a cable then you probably need to replace the cable. Verify that the mechanical pedal under the dash is not binding first. If it is Hydraulic then the slave cylinder could be the culprit.

It happen twice to me ,spring come out from clutch disk and jam the pressure plate, check transmission shift very well with engine stopped, When you push the pedal you push the spring and put pressure on the disk
Sticking clutch throw-out bearing arm or linkage/cable, or pedal, so that throw-out bearing is just barely and intermittently touching the throw-out plate of the clutch. Depressing the pedal slightly engages the bearing to the plate causing positive drive of the bearing, quieting the noise. After running a while, the bearing moves sufficient distance to disengage. Next time it happens, with the vehicle stopped, in neutral and with the parking brake set, stick your toes under the clutch pedal and pull it back, see if the noise stops or changes..
Ok it looks like there is no problem with the clutch or tranmission. You problem is that the clutch pedal is stiff and sticking to the floor. This sometimes happens when vehicles sit for extended periods of time. It might free up by working back and forth by hand. Have the vehicle off and the parking brake applied and push the clutch pedal up and down with your hand, It might stick to the floor and you may have to pull it off the floor a few times. You can also get some spray lubricant from your local canadian tire or auto parts store. open the hood and have someone move the clutch pedal up and down and spray the moving parts. It might take a few times to free up the stiff linkage but it will work :)
Do the following:
-Check the clutch fluid,
-With the engine off make the trip from 1 to 5 gear,as if you were on the road
if it is okay
Let's go to the second step, With the engine running, do the same but keeping the pedal depressed , Does not engage any gear ?
-If the clutch fluid is OK , then The bearing of the output shaft is damaged or clutch release bearing
your clutch uses a hydraulic master and slave cylinder to disengage. It is likely that the slave has been leaking and the reservoir gone dry, thus allowing air into the system and reducing effectiveness. Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir (near the brake reservoir) fluid level. If low, also check the slave cylinder at the clutch for leakage. If leaking, replace the slave and bleed the system. If you need procedures or have more questions, please let us know.

The clutch pedal sticking down is normally due to the damper sticking. You can see it just above the gearbox bellhousing. If it's not obvious, track the hydraulic line back from the clutch slave cylinder and you'll come across a disc shaped object with 2 hydraulic connections. You can either bypass this and rebleed the clutch cylinder (normal practise) or replace it and rebleed. The AR part number for EURO 1992 12v V6 cars and USA 1992 12v V6 cars is 60556925.
there is a way to pressure bleed the system. depress and lock the clutch pedal down with the use of a pedal depresser or a stick, long extension something, with the pedal depressed crack the bleeder open and the pressure plate springs should force fluid out of the bleeder. note in some cases the pedal will stick in the depressed position. without the springs from the pressure plate. this is normal. just manually return the pedal to its start position, and repeat until air is purged.
If it is a brand new clutch, it's not broken in yet, which is why it
"sticks". Give it some time, though, and it will stop "sticking". It
took a half mile of stop and go traffic for mine to stop doing that
with my new performance clutch.
