Clutch problem the clutch pedal won't return back UP, why ?

indicates no fluid in the system or air in the system
in a hydraulic it requires fluid to make the clutch disengage and also fluid to make the pedal return from the pressure of the pressure plate
if it is a cable clutch, replace the cable as the inner cable is breaking and jamming in the case

Hi there, the clutch pedal has been depressed to the floor and won't return out and therefore engaging gears on this 1994 manual Camry is proving to be a challenge, could it be a broken cable and if so,...

Before I can give you a correct answer I really need to know mileage and if you have ever replaced clutch,clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder...You can do a quick look under driver side dash and see if clutch pedal return spring is broken or disconnected...Look at the top of the pedal...Also look under hood while you are at it and check clutch master cylinder for fullness..also check for any leaks from behind master cylinder ..?.There are different things to cause this.....Please send more info unless you see your problem..If you see something wrong I will be happy to guide you through a repair...Thanks..

Hydrolic clutch pedal sticking

Hi, Look in the foot well (where you normally have you feet) you should see a return spring attached to the clutch pedal, if missing or you can see broken spring you need to buy another spring, you will see parts of broken spring where they fit not a very hard job to replace. Please leave me feedback thanks, Malcolm Campbell.

Clutch sticking on 2000 pontiac firebird trans am. clutch comes halfway up but need to pull it up the rest of the way w/my foot.

There is actually a fix for this problem. There is no return spring for the clutch being that it is hydraulic. You need to take the master cylinder out and drill the return line an 1/8th of an inch. The reason why it sticks is because the return line is too small. All the fluid is backed up and once it is cleared, the clutch will return to normal. There is an article in GM High Performance magazine online that has the step by step instructions to fix it. Hope this helps.

When I was at a stop light, I went to put it in first gear when the light turned green. When I did, the clutch pedal just went straight to the floor, and stayed there. It doesn't seem to be the clutch...

The thrust bearing could have collapsed or the Fingers on the clutch plate have gone.

If when you press down on the clutch the cable moves the arm on the clutch housing then it is either of the above
