Q: Clutch pedal gets stuck

There may be a problem with the clutch pressure plate, the hydraulic clutch master, or slave cylinder binding. The clutch is the most likely problem, and would need to be inspected to be sure. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, run a thorough inspection on why your clutch is not fully disengaging.
