Hello, the clutch system has a hydraulic and mechanical operation. You could have two issues. The hydraulics assist in releasing and applying the clutch. There is a pressure plate that reacts to the clutch pedal, if the pressure plate has failed it will create the issue you have this would involve removing the transmission to replace. The hydraulics can become stressed, causing a leak of the fluid and the system to fail. If you’d like, a certified Your Mechanic Technician can come to your location to inspect the clutch system. Please look at this web site for more information and service options. clutch
