Suddenly mushy clutch pedal
Today my clutch pedal on my 98 RS got mushy after about 45mins of backroad cruising (not thrashing) and 5mins of 50mph stop and go. It took about half the pedal travel to get some feel and then the last half to the floor would disengage the clutch w/o any grinding. Pick-up was half way rather than the normal 3/4 distance up. Ambient temps are in the 80's (Mass), fluid is Ate Super Blue less than a year old (maybe 22K). Clutch is original and has almost 55K miles. After a about 15 min stop, the pedal came back, but is still softer than normal. When I stopped the fluid level was at the full line and still reasonably clear.
Boiling (ed) fluid?

Have u tried bleeding the clutch ? There is a bleed nipple on the back of the actuator (on top of the gearbox housing).
I and others have had it where the clutch pedal suddenly goes down (no resistance). A bit scarey.. it goes to the floor.... then if you lift it.. it returns higher... but once pressed returns back to normal..
I have never figured it out yet.. probably an air bleed valve doing its job...weird
