    Ya the stock hydraulics on these cars isn't that great.
    drill mod would help out a lot.

    Clutch Master Cylinder

    Same thing happen to me about six months ago @42K. It took a new clutch master cylinder to fix it. Lots of ideas from fluid change, drill mod, and bleeding to name a few. New cylinder did the trick.

    My guess would be the master also as the drill mod would'nt affect the 'petal' (pedal) from returning unless somehow fluid flow was blocked. It would take a big hunk of garbage to block the hose if this were the case. Also wanted to point out that the 01 +02 cars have better hydraulics.
