Clutch issue? Please advise.

So I noticed something yesterday that's got me worried. I was driving along and a GTO pulled up next to me. We were running 30/35. I dropped her into 2nd and jumped on her for about a block. This is when I noticed my clutch pedal would not come all the way back up. It was stuck half way down. I pulled into a parking lot, side stepped it a few times and it popped back up. No issue since but I haven't ran her hard again. I'm freaked out about it. I am going to the strip on the 22nd but now I'm worried to run her hard.

Thoughts?

Do not fix it half way by removing the clutch assist spring. Such a stupid and half a$$ed way to do it. Replace your stock hydraulic clutch line, very easy to do and many choices are out there. The factory clutch does not like high rpm shifts due to the small diameter and high expansion of the factory hydraulic line. Replace it, top off your fluid, pump your clutch 100 times because it's a self bleeding system, recheck fluid, and enjoy. The best $60-$80 you'll ever spend on your car. Good luck!

Good luck with that. Lol. You couldn't pay me enough to take my car to a dealer for service. I'd rather sell it.

if you replace your clutch line....DO NOT DROP THE RETAINING CLIP!!!!!!

also you may have to re-bleed it the next day with 100 more pedal pumps.

oh yeah, do NOT drop the clip.

long needle nose are the trick to get the clip out plus it's an excuse to go to Home Depot/Lowes and get a set!
