Probably a problem with the clutch hydraulics. You may need new clutch cylinders.


Or badly worn pressure plate springs. OTOH if you have a mechanical cable adjuster tighten it up a bit and retest. If hydraulic it's NOT adjustable and either a leak should be chased down (ala FOR), or that PP's springs are old and soft.
