Clutch Pedal Stuck Before Top (Out)

I was driving a long distance today on a U.S. Highway with quite a few stop and go's, temperature about 80 and high humidity, so the transmission was plenty hot, I'm sure. Pulling up to a stop sign, I downshifted from 5th to 4th and the clutch pedal didn't come all the way up (out), probably 1-1.5" from the top of travel. I pushed it in and out again a few times but it still stuck in the same position and I couldn't shift to another gear. I pulled over to check things out and ended up using my hand to pull the pedal all the way up. I kept driving, about another 100 miles, to work, and it didn't happen again. I have 56,000 miles on the car. Is this an obvious sign of a particular problem?

BTW, in hindsight, I might also be feeling some occasional momentary clutch slippage. I wasn't sure what I was feeling but it feels like a hesitation during acceleration.

no expert but I would say you need a new clutch and pressure plate.

Take out your helper spring. It helps when this happens. You might need a new clutch though.
