Default clutch stuck to the floor, not sure what to try.

I read a couple posts that say a couple of things could be wrong if the clutch pedal is stuck in but can be pulled out by hand. The fork looks ok and is in position, i dont know how a slave cylinder should feel but that was going to be my first try. However, when i push the clutch ALL the way to the floor i hear a pretty loud noise coming from the tranny. Leads me to believe its not just the slave cylinder. Any ideas or things i could try?

Also the car was always pretty hoppy trying to get into first gear from a stop. I have an aftermarket clutch put in.

Might want to ask in the proper forum. http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=55

But my advice would be what you have already said. Its a common simptom you find when the slave cylinder goes bad.

Not only could it be a bad slave cylinder but I'd check your Master Cylinder as well. When I had a clutch stick to the floor it ended up being the Master Cylinder but I had to replace the Slave shortly there after. Check both

have a friend step on the clutch while you watch the action on the slave.

(top of the trans, inside the engine bay.... under the intercooler)

Is the piston being pushed out of the slave and pushing the clutch release fork forward?
If the piston isn't being pushed out, it's the slave, or master or somewhere in between. If the slave has failed, most likely you'll see brake fluid coming out of it.

Was anything done prior to this? Normally they won't just fail out of nowhere. Don't forget the obvious and check the fluid level and try to bleed it out before replacing parts.
