Help with clutch

Ok, would like some input as to how everyone's clutch pedal feels. Took my 13 in for clutch replace. When I picked it up the clutch was basically on the floor, only coming up an inch or two. Drove cpl miles and it came back up to about brake pedal height. The way it's been since I bought it. Drove several miles and pedal was back on the floor. When it's down low it still shifts fine. Just want to know where it is suppose to be!!!!

Help with clutch

I had something similar when I replaced my clutch line and still had some air trapped in the system. I loosened my master cylinder cap slightly and got in to pump the pedal with the car off. Fully to the floor then release completely. Took another 50 times but it's back to normal. Did the same thing with the car on to make sure I got it all. Give it a try, can't hurt anything.

Almost forgot, pedal should be all the way up. Stick your foot behind it and lift, you shouldn't be able to lift it. That's how mine is on my 11.

This would concern me as to how the rest of the drivetrain is holding up....4K miles should be nothing on a clutch, even in hard conditions, barring full out drag racing.

Changing the line helped smooth things out when going through the gears. Wasn't having any issues with the pedal sticking to floor like some people but figured I'd upgrade while I was at it. Cost me $70 so it was a cheap upgrade.

First mod was an MGW. Then swapped the trans fluid under the TSB. Lastly, this past weekend I installed the Whiteline insert and braided line. I think I've sorted out everything I wanted to with the trans now. I can basically shift with 2 fingers regardless of temp or how hard I'm driving so I'm done messing with it...for now.

I have been hunting the net for issues like this. Have 30k on my 14 and recently I have noticed that the pedal engages almost instantly from the floor. After sitting a week, it won't go into first or second without force...like it is partly engaged. Stock fluid, and never opened system up, but looks like maybe moisture got in there or something. Gonna bleed it when I get home. Have whiteline, removed spring, and mgw, and replaced fluid in tranny.
Really noticed this more when I removed the assist spring. Not sure why.

Same here. I removed the spring and every time I start my car I have to pull the back of the pedal up with my foot. I changed my clutch line and it shifts great but does not really want to go into R or 1st in the morning or when cold.

Did this happen concurrently with removing the assist spring? I can't remember if that is when mine started this, but is was def near that time. I am having the same issues.

I removed the spring months ago but have had to pull the pedal up every time I drive since then. The difficulty with R and 1st started after I replaced the clutch line. I will say that I think it is an issue regardless when its this cold out. I have never changed the fluid, I think I will take it in this month to give the fluid change a shot.
