sounds like...

...either you blew something in the hydraulic system, if it has one...you'll have to look at it and have someone work the pedal and see what moves. or is it mechanical...levers, cables...that sort of thing. if it's mechanical, it may be very obvious unless something broke inside the bell housing. likewise, if you popped the master cyl or slave cylinder...there should be fluid showing. when looking for fluid from the master, don't forget to look inside where the push rod comes thru the fire wall for fluid running down under the carpet. it is also possible that something broke in the clutch itself so if you don't see something external, the trans will have to be removed to verify. i'd recommend replacing the clutch either way if the tranny has to be removed...and resurface the flywheel at the same time.

not unless...

...i knew exactly what broke in it...$100 for a blown slave cylinder installed...$600-800 for a broken clutch.

If your losing clutch throw and the fluid is not disappearing, you have a bad Clutch master cylinder but I would recommend changing both if the slave is mounted externally.
In the future, please use the reply button to keep all this within the same thread. It's impossible to follow otherwise.
