Clutch pedal falls to floor and stays

Hey everyone i have a 2002 alfa romeo 156 1.8. I recently have had problems with the clutch sticking a little bit and then it progressed in the the clutch staying to the floor. i could just pull it up and then it be fine. Then it stopped doing it for a few days and it worked fine. now its really bad. The clutch just like sucks itself in with very little pressure and stays on the floor, i cant even put it into gear. I bleed the slave cylinder and still no change. If anyone has any help it would be much appreciated, thanks.

Yea from everything I've been reading that what it sounds. Do you know of any tricks or anything else to check before replacing it. Also do u happen to maybe have the steps or anywhere I can find them to do it?

Search for threads on "stiff clutch pedal" (stickied i think) .. The process mentioned in it goes through a step of getting to the slave cylinder. Replace & bleed system.

I'd be looking at the clutch pedal return spring...

Edit: although I've just seen you've said "i cant even put it into gear", so probably more than that...

More likely the master cylinder. Don't seem to like cold weather, I guess it finishes off already worn seals when they stiffen with the cold.

Stiff clutch pedal refers to the diesel only, this is a petrol which is different (gearbox actuation is different).

When I replaced by Master Cylinder on my 1.9jtd GT the slave went two weeks later. I would change both at the same time as its only another £40 or so quid. My clutch feels much better now!

This is a petrol, the slave is inside the gearbox so it's a much bigger job to change.

yea i emailed the mechanic and he said that it would be better to do both the slave and master and it was only gonna be 330$ for parts and labor which isnt bad. Im also gonna have them put in a new clutch while there in there so im sure thatll tach on a few more bucks. 330$ sound fare for slave and master job?
