clutch pedal bottoms out....

well today my clutch started acting up.. first it felt like it was loosing all pressure and it was hard to get into gear, after pumping it for a bit i got it into gear and could drive it. then the pedal started to bottom out befor it would get to the floor, and it would stick and still felt soft. i pulled the master and slave to check for damage but didnt see anything, no leaking or anything.. what more could it be? the clutch only has maybe 8000 miles on it.

That's what it sounds like to me. I had the exact same thing happen on mine. Went down wouldn't come up. Replace the slave didn't do it.

I couldn't even shift it it was so jammed up.
