Also, mine was like that when I bought it a couple of months ago. Pulling up on the pedal made no difference, and I was PO'd. I had just learned to deal with it when last Sunday night, I was heading to church and the clutch just died. My dad and I pulled the transmission and found the friction material had shattered on one side and was almost non existent on the other. I replaced it, and now the pedal is perfect!
