Default Clutch pedal does not return freely (sluggish): Saab 9000 Aero 1995

Saab 9000 Aero 1995

Problem: Clutch pedal does not return freely.

Recently replaced:

Slave Cylinder
Master Cylinder
Clutch
Release bearing
Clutch line
Gear shifter seal
Gear shifter pin
Pedal spring was greased

Work was done by knowledgeable and experienced Saab indie shop.

The problem is intermittent. I will start off in the morning and pedal has free and easy up and down movement. It may work fine all day. Other days it will begin to return slowly: especially at bottom end.

When it starts to act up, if I push it right to the floor it will stick there for a moment before popping up. I can kind of get around the problem by depressing the pedal just enough to be able to change the gear. If go past that point there is definitely a lag on the return. A times, times a big lag (sluggish return). It was worse before replacing the master cylinder but problem still there and intermittent.

All other aspects of the clutch system seem to be working fine.

Have had some resistance from my mechanic on dealing with this problem?!?

I will be dropping the car there next week so he can look at it...again.

Any insight is very much appreciated.
