`Did it bleed, did fluid come out in a steady stream? Isn't there a spring to bring the pedal off the floor?
Check the linkage of the pedal to rod to the clutch master cylinder, make sure that is all together. Any chance the master has an internal leak and won't build hydraulic pressure down at the slave? If you get it bled, then watch the slave operation while someone works the clutch pedal. The piston on the slave should extend and push the clutch fork enough to disengage the clutch.
Hi this sounds like the clutch is slipping , the cause could be a worn out friction plate commonly known (clutch plate) or it could be contaminated with oil either via a leak at the rear main seal or the transmission spigot shaft seal , it is best to replace the entire clutch kit , have a technician check the freeplay of your clutch pedal as a point of depature.
Hope this helps a bit,

there are only two adjustment you can make on a hydraulic clutch set up and that is pedal hight and free play. To adjust pedal hight you rotate pedal stop bolt at top of pedal assembly to adjust the hight. To adjust freeplay you loosen the lock nut at the master cylinder pushrod and turn push rod in or out to the specified freeplay then you tighten everything back up
A clutch needs freeplay. But it only needs a half inch or so. So if there is that much freeplay, leave it. You want as much clutch travel under pressure as you can get. If there is not at least a half inch freeplay, then you either lengthen the cable by shortening the sheath adjustment, or shorten the clutch master cylinder rod.
A high clutch pedal is good.
There should only be about a half inch of pedal freeplay, before you start to feel resistance.
So the clutch should not engage until it is almost fully released, near the top.
The makes shifting the easiest.
If the shifting is difficult when cold, then put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out when you warm up the engine.
That will warm up the transmission oil.
Of course you could also check the transmission oil level and change it.
But your question makes me believe you may need more experience on a stick shift. Make sure you do the H pattern carefully, and do not get lazy and turn it into an X pattern.
How is it suppose to ? What is 2 ?Does the clutch engages right away when you release the pedal or almost at the end (pedal up), did you check the freeplay on the pedal ? Should have free play, push clutch pedal by hand and you should move it a half inch before feeling resistance.
did you check your pedal freeplay check your adjustment you need to have not more thant 1 inch freeplay on the clutch pedal what it does is when you did not adjusted right it cannot release your release bearing also check your linkage aite..
The cluch is operated by a cable, the adjustment is at the fire wall in the engine compartment [drivers side] on the cable. To adjust the cable loosen the lock nut, then loosen adjusting nut for more freeplay or tighten for less freeplay. Freeplay is checked at clutch pedal, it should have approx. 1/2 to 3/4 inch of freeplay.
