Question about 2011 Suzuki Grand Vitara
This could be more than one reason. Could you please comment below describing exactly what happens when the pedal gets 'stuck' down?
Does the pedal feel correct as you push it down? Does it change gear normally even when the pedal does get stuck?
If the clutch pedal feels wrong when you use it, the clutch fluid may be low needing to be topped up and the system might need bleeding. Is the pedal slack when you press it or pull it free? This could be a faulty return spring on the pedal.

SOURCE: no clutch pressure
The master cylinder located under the dash and connected to the pedal may be malfunctioning. Try bleeding the slave underneath the car first, Be sure your brake fluid is clean also. If the fluid is dirty or muddy looking, it is possible the fluid has "eaten" some of the rubber parts in the master and/or slave cylinder. Flush the system and be sure & use a good quality fluid.
The pedal is directly connected to the master cylinder and if it doesn't come up then it's probably going to be a master cylinder problem if you have bled the system & it still malfunctions.

You could have a problem with your pressure plate, but you need to check out your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder too. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid reservoir, and make sure it is full. It is located on the back wall of the engine compartment, approx right in front of your clutch pedal. If it is low, or you notice any fluid leakage, you need to address what caused that. You can bleed the system too, but that won't repair the problem.

YOU DO NEED A NEW DISC AND MOST LIKELY A MASTER AND SLAVE HYDRAULIC CLUTCH CYLINDERS, THE STICKING MAY BE DUE TO OVER TRAVEL DUE TO THE WORN OUT DISK.

first check for fluid in clutch reservoir, maybe low. second bleed air from clutch system. if still no pressure then check master cylinder or slave cylinder. sometimes it is a simple fix.
