    Default E36 Clutch Pedal Issues

    Hey, after over a week of my 92 325is sitting in the garage (this was the week right after the cold snap we had), I jumped in the car and depressed the clutch. The clutch hit the floor with no resistance at all, and did not come back up, i had to stick my foot behind the clutch pedal and bring it back up manually. At first I thought slave cylinder but it wouldn't make sense after the car has not been used for a week. There is no clutch fluid leaking either.

    What could be the problem???
