Clutch problems on possible future car

Hi guys, planning to buy a fifth gen from my area. Unfortunately it has a clutch issue and i'm sure its been posted somewhere before but i'm barely sure what to search for. I'm mechanically competent and could probably figure it out but I would like a second opinion before i start trying everything.

Okay so, looked at the car yesterday. Everything was fine except for the clutch. It only has pressure about 8/10 of the way down while pressing it. The clutch only feels like it disengages about half way because you have to force it into gear, and its not just a little push, it took a lot of effort to get it into gear. And as soon as its in gear and you move your foot back about a half an inch or so the clutch grabs. Its not slipping its a strong clutch. Would just like to hear what you guys think it could be. Thanks in advance and also, its a 99 prelude, with the h22 vtec, 215k on it.

Re: Clutch problems on possible future car

My guess would b the clutch master or Slave going out. My slave cylinder was leaking at the rubber part and it was extremely difficult to put the car in gear. I changed that out and the master for the hell of it cause u kinda want to Change both cause bleeding the clutch is pain in the azz. Start at the slave cylinder
