Have a Nice Day? Help! Clutch is dead

I am looking for a little help. I went to bleed my clutch today because it has not been feeling right as of late. When my buddy pushed in the pedal I opened the valve, fluid rushed out and I closed it. Then my buddy said that the pedal did not return when he let it go. What is going on here? I was able to pull it back to its resting position and it feld like a switch. It would either stay in its normal resting place or if I pushed it in, it popped all of the way to the floor. I noticed that the little pushrod was indeed moving in and out with the pedal, but the lever it was supposed to push against was not returning when the rod did. Anyone know what would cause this? If it is the clutch do you think it would be covered by the powertrain warranty? I've already gone past the regular warranty miles. Thanks much for any help you may provide.

The clutch is just a pump. Push it in and it will stay down if you are bleeding it. You must then pull the clutch back up by hand to pump more fluid. If the actuator rod inside the car is not returning with the clutch pedal, there is likely a missing pin or bolt.

Thumbs up

Hey, thanks for the reply. I don't think it is the master or secondary cylinder that are causing the problem. The little rod moves in and out with the clutch pedal, it's the lever that goes into the tranny that is not returning leading me to believe the pressure plate is not providing any force to clamp the disk. I will look into it being something else as you mentioned, however. Thanks much. Anyone else have an opinion?

Update... I looked into Revision's advice and it may be closer than I originally thought. I went and looked at a friend's RS and I noticed that the lever that goes into the tranny case is not in the wrong position. It appears that the piston is not fully extending so the rod extending out of the cylinder does not contact it. If it fully extended it would push on the lever and it would slide back an inch or two. I tried pumping the clutch about 30-40 times but it didn't do much. Now, at the last inch of travel on the pedal you can feel the rod contact the lever and push it just a bit. Why can't I get the hydralic pressure back?
