On a 1997 saab 9000 cse turbo: the clutch pedal stays down

Customer Question

on a 1997 saab 9000 cse turbo: the clutch pedal stays down on the floor when working it a lot in stop-n-go traffic. It returns on its own eventually. There is enough fluid in the reservoir. How can i tell if the the problem is the clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder. The hoses don't appear to be leaking.
JA: Leaks can get messy. The Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: just inspection of hoses and the system diagram to figure out the likely cause. Seems to come down to either a bad master cylinder or bad slave cylinder which is where i need help in the dagnosis
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Mechanic should know about your Saab?
Customer: no
JA: Our top Mechanic is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Mechanic in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Mechanic until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.
