Default Clutch pedal keeps getting stuck to the floor.

I had this problem when I replaced my clutch lines for stainless steel braided ones; the ebay seller who sold me the line sold me a leaky one and the leak would cause me to lose clutch fluid, eventually causing the clutch to stop working. I replaced the line and now it doesn't appear to be leaking any more, but a new problem has appeared;
If I hold the clutch down for more than a few seconds (say, stopped in traffic for example) it will stay stuck to the bottom and I will have to pop it back up with my toes and pump it a couple of times to get it to work properly again. It is losing clutch fluid through a leak somewhere but I can't pinpoint where.
Assuming it is not the clutch line again, where else should I look for a clutch problem?

did you replace the banjo bolt washers? It might be leaking at the points that connects up to the hard line or the slave cylinder.

And if you haven't already, bleed the cylinder of course.

Bleeding the clutch won't make the problem go away; the reason why the pedal sticks to the floor is because there is a leak somewhere that is bleeding clutch fluid. I know there is a leak because I have to top off the fluid every couple weeks.
I don't *think* its the line; I can't see any fluid around it. Could it be something else?

I have the same problem, but I am not leaking any fluid. Mine happens after I have been driving for about 5-10 mins. Then it gets sticky and i have to pull it off the floor. I am going to try to re-bleed the system.

This is often the sign of a dying clutch slave and/or master cylinder. Bleeding the system may help temporarily but the problem will usually come back, as the cylinder(s) are either leaking internally and losing pressure, or externally and admitting air. The permanent fix is to replace BOTH the master and slave, and of course bleed the system. Replace only one and it may be ok for now, but the other one may then fail in short order. These things travel best in pairs.

Thank you; that is what I suspected, though didn't want to hear.
Say, how much do those cost and where can I get them from cheaply?

mulder hit the nail on the head...fairly common issue on the GC's.

I think we have the master and slaves in stock - they are not especially pricey parts

I just found a pinhole leak on my Ebay stainless steel braided clutch line. That blows; its the second one I have that leaks.
Are there any other aftermarket replacement ones?

Ah yes, the "Ebay" brand aftermarket parts. Always a good idea to avoid.
Adam at Z1, who posted above, can sell you the real deal.
