6 speed manual clutch sticking

Hi there, I hope someone can help me. I have a 2006 drw f-350, 6.0l with a 6 speed manual. My last trip home from holidays I was pulling my boat, 7000lbs, and found that after a hill climb when shifting from 4th to fifth the clutch would go in hard and stick to the floor. It would come up if I pulled the pedal up with my foot. It also did this when I started from stop and went through the gears to get up to hwy speed, 3000 rpm shifts. other than that it worked as normal. I checked the spring under the dash as a few people have suggested, but all seems normal. I have read others with this same strange phenomena but no one seems to have any post on an answer. Fluids in the slave res are good.

Thanks for reading and any help you can give me.

I have the same problem. But I don't haul anything.. mine is happening under hard throttle so far in 3rd 4th and also in OD.. I do a lot of highway driving and half on my main trip is on two lane so I do a lot of passing. If I give it hard throttle ( I say close to 3/4 or full throttle) the clutch is depressed and I have to pull it with my foot. I haven't given it hard throttle in 1st or 2nd to see if it does it in those gears also because I am worried about burning up the clutch or damaging the tranny. It just recently started doing this and it's kinda making me worry I have burnt up the clutch which I don't know how it would already be burnt up.. 96K miles. Any help would be appreciated!

I would suggest trying to replace the master and slave it's fairly cheap and a good point to start. Sounds like a hydraulic issue they are known to be cheap setups made out of plastic.

Are there aftermarket master or slave cylinders? Or would it be best to just get the stock parts?

Well I don't know of any aftermarket but from any dealer you can get a pre bled. That's where I got mine. I'm not postive that's yours or the op's problem just what I would do it's worth a shot. I'm sure one of the site vendors can get you one for a good deal.

Does $400 sound right for parts and labor for master and slave replacement?

I paid 200 for the setup it doesn't take no two hours to do it. It's not hard I'm sure you can do it yourself.

Well I told the guy to order the parts and do it.. All the shops back home are more than a week before they can get to it and same here except this guy. So he will get to it Friday and hopefully it will fix this annoying freaking problem.
I would do it myself but I just don't have the time with school.. so I guess I will just get gouged this time.
