Best Answer

The clutch pedal dropping to the floor indicates no pressure to hold it up. In a hydraulic system the master cylinder or slave cylinder have either gone bad or the fluid is too low. If fluid is low then air has gotten into the lines preventing the pressure from operating the clutch. This can also be caused by a broken arm attached to the pedal.

Well, we need lots more information here. Is the clutch pedal actually "stuck" to the floor? In other words, can you NOT lift the pedal up to the normal position? OR, has the clutch pedal "fallen" to the floor due to no resistance from the clutch?

You should not attempt to replace the clutch yourself unless you have considerable mechanical skills. In this case, the problem is most likely that the spring holding the clutch pedal in place is broken.

Why does the clutch pedal stick to the floor?

You've blown a clutch hose by the sound of it, or you've got a leak in the clutch master or slave cylinder. Either way, without clutch fluid, the clutch pedal wont come off the floor and the clutch will be disengaged. Any half decent mechanic should be able to figure out what the issue is without charging and arm and a leg.
