Default Stuck Clutch Pedal MY98

just trying to confirm or deny that this is the
Master/Slave clutch cylinder before I go order
the parts. Stealers are charging 130 for Master
and 50~ for the Slave. Just don't want to be
200$ in the hole and have the same problems.

Symptoms: Clutch pedal sticks when depressed,
hard to push into forward gears, grinds bad when
put into reverse. Happened recently after high heat
times. Fine on start-up after been sitting, continuos
driving seems to start showing symptoms. Stop and
go on a hill will pretty much lock up my transmission.

Car: MY98 Subaru Forester S, 5spd Exedy stg3 clutch '
and lightened flywheel under 7k on it. Thanks ahead guys
and girls.

Found this thread, not sure if it will apply to me though.

I'd be stunned if it wasn't one or the other, and it's best to just replace both at the same time. I don't think those prices are actually that horrible, based on other cars I've worked on.

that's your slave cylinder

change the slave + the hose

my car does the same thing and has done for a while
but only in 80F + temperatures

me = too lazy to change it

that's defo the cause.

Yah, definitely change the slave. Those are the exact symptoms my Supra had. I had to use my left foot to pop my clutch out a lot.
