Every once in a while when I shift, my clutch pedal won't come all the way back.. I'll have to put my foot behind it and it will just pop back.. This happen to anyone else? And what should I do?

Thanks

More often then not, a bad master cylinder is the culprit. You need to check the slave cylinder when this happens and see if the clutch fork returns to the normal position when the pedal sticks. If so, and the slave isn't leaking fluid, its the master cylinder.

Check and make sure all the bolts are tight where the top of the clutch bracket (that holds the spring) to the fire wall. Mine would mess up when one of these losened.

Has it been making a whole lot of creaking noise for a while before it started doing that? Mine did, I just attributed it to that bushing problem that is so common. First time it happened on mine is when I think the bushing broke completely and jammed things up. Ever since it has had kind of a sticky return.

It does seem like that acutally.. I only got the truck a few months back, but yeah it's always been squeeky. I got out of the truck one time to go ride with a friend through some sticky stuff that I didn't want to go through.
When I came back for some reason the clutch pedal was pushed all the way in with no pressure.
I pulled it back and ever since then about once every 10 or so minutes it will just return about 75% (the clutch is fully out, but the pedal won't come all the way back)... I could live with it but I'd rather not.

I'll check for loose bolts on the bracket tomorrow first though
