it sounds like a hydraulic problem, but could be more. its like brakes, you could have master, slave cyl problem or leak in the line so inspect the system first for leaks. if a master or slave goes you may see leaks around the petal or down by the trans

Thanks for reply jwfirebird the fluid resevoir seems to be full that was the first thing I checked and I did not notice any leaks inside the car or around the tranny Also I removed the clutch master cylinder but was not sure if the rod from the pedal is supposed to be attached to the master cylinder or if it just mashes inside of it
