Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. What you have here is either a clutch cylinder internal seal issue, or weak springs on the clutch pressure plate. . When you press the clutch, you force hydraulic pressure to the transmission, where it enters and pressurizes the clutch slave cylinder. The slave cylinder, when pressurized, moved the shift fork that moves the clutch. If the clutch pedal is limp, there is insufficient pressure being exerted to the fluid (via the clutch arm, via the diaphragm springs on the clutch pressure plate) to force the pressurized fluid back into he master cylinder reservoir. More often than not, the cylinders are the main cause of your issue. The recommendation I have for you on this request would be to replace both of the clutch cylinders (the master cylinder and the slave cylinder). I would recommend that you do not replace one by itself. The thinking here is if one is bad, the other is not too far behind. And, a new cylinder in either position may not activate of be activated by a weak cylinder that was nto replaced. This could cause you to be unable to shift gears.
