clutch trouble

My car: Honda 1995 Accord LX 2.2

My car was sitting outside in the cold after spending time in the garage. I got in the car and pushed down the clutch and there seemed to be a lot of play - i could push it down about 2-3 inches before it was somewhat firm. When i first start to drive i can barely shift it. it doesn't grind, but its near impossible to get it into gear. After i get going the shifting gets easier, however the pedal still has the same amount of play and softness. any ideas?

I assume it didn't do this before it sat for a while? Did you check the clutch master cylinder fluid level? If it is low you probably have a leak some where.

Sounds like a fluid leak for sure. Change bothe the clutch Master and the slave cylinder to avoid future problems.
