sticking clutch

so when I when i try to shift quick, sometimes the clutch pedel will stay on the floor for a few seconds after i let my foot up, one time I had to pull it back up. am I just pushing the clutch to hard or could a bushing or the return spring be worn out and is it an easy fix?

there is a helper spring under the dash you can pull out..

if its a stock clutch I'm thinking your pressure plate or master cylinder may be the culprit

I dont have the sticking problem. If I go to shift into third quickly though. the gears will grind. The clutch is all the way in.

Here's the fix

Go to the Ford dealer, tell them you need a clutch master cylinder kit, I bought one about 6 months ago it was $119.00 + tax, my clutch pedal went to the floor and stayed there and this is how I fixed it . When you get it it should come in a long box, everything is all put together and pre bled, all you need to do is remove your old one and reinstall the new one, no more than a 1.5 hr job at the most...


Good luck
