Default Clutch getting stuck, even after bleeding.

So here the thing, the clutch gets stuck about an inch from fully being disengaged and I have to pull it up back with my foot, or it bounces back really hard. I have bled the clutch and it worked like butter for a day or so and now here it is again. Could it be the slave cylinder? From what I can tell it's not leaking anywhere, and brake fluid is filled up. Even though when I first bled the clutch, there was a lot of air in it and it was a bit low on brake fluid. My car is an 02 2.5rs. Thanks a lot !

Definitely sounds like slave cylinder or even the line from it. Inspect the soft line as well.
O also check the bleed port. Sometimes they get gummed up and may not allow the bleed port to properly tighten up, therefore allowing some air to get back in.
Make to get new o rings/seal for the reservoir to cylinder.

For some reason, my local o'reileys have the slave cylinder for only $23. Should I just order a whole slave cylinder and see what happens? They will also allow me to return it if that wasn't the problem so no risk taken here. Thanks a bunch for ur info!

Check to see if that slave comes with a seal or o ring for the reservoir. If it does just replace it. If not see if you can get it. No reason to buy a whole new one if the reservoir isn't damaged.

I had a similar issue except mine would go all the way to the floor and not come back. I changed the slave and that didn't help. Turned out to need a master. I did the ol' cluth delay valve-ectomy while in there and replaced the clutch line with a SS one. All is good.

I ordered the slave cylinder, how do I go about replacing it? Do i have to flush out all of the fluid? If so, do i do it with the bleed screw?

Put in the new slave cylinder, we will see in a day or two if that was the problem. Also, I used a week old brake fluid, should I flush it all out and put in a new one or is it fine? If so, is there an easier way to flush it all out or pump-unscrew the bleed port a bunch of times? Appreciate all the help!

Fluid should be fine. An easier way to bleed is by using a vacuum pump. Either a hand pump or compressor driven pump.
