couple ?'s

i did my research and came up with nothing.

I know my clutch is shot it slips to all H***
my TOB grinds/ and stops when i push in the pedal
so i got a new clutch kit. doing that tomarro
i'm getting rid of the clutch damper? box as well while im under there.
but my clutch pedal falls to the floor from time to time like theres no pressure. i see no leaks and i have bled it 2 times and its alright for like 2 days and it'll do it again.

i'm one of those guys that when i buy a used car all major drivetrain parts are replaced first, so the slave is next and prob a master as well.

the question is does the spring on the clutch pedal play that big of a role on pulling back the pedal. (i know its there for a reason but i never had a spring on my other 4 cars so i never noticed) or is it there for a little extra help
thanks in advance

The spring does assist the pedal to be pushed back. It applies tension but if your pedal sticks to the floor from time to time it could be other issues. Im thinking your pressure plate is bad. Its no pushing the throwout bearing and fork back which pushed the slave cylinder, which pushes the hydraulic fluid and pushes the pedal back up. Correct me if im wrong guys but thats probably your problem. Also be sure to bleed your slave cylinder by itself. The FSm will not tell you to do this but its very important.
