    Exclamation Help! Clutch sticking - bleed or master?

    So I got in my car after work and the pedal was on the floor. I can pull it up with my hand and it'll stay up then falls back to the floor when I push on it. Does this sound like a bad master cyl or does it need a bleed and should be good?

    I already read that. Jus wondering if anyone knew if I could get away with bleeding. The car had a crappy clutch feel when I first bought it. I'm thinking it's the master and I pray it's not the slave ....

    check to see if your clutch hydraulic fluid is low.
    If it is, then you have a leak.
    If no leaks then you probably have a bad master and should replace it

    I deduced that as well, I thought I lost pressure somewhere, somehow but I still have fluid. I think I'll go ahead and order a new master.

    The first thing you want to do is flush the fluid and bleed it.
