Default I really need a instructor

So I currently own 2- 94 saturns a sl,and sl1. Sohc. 5 spds. I think the motor is on its way out on sl1 but I've thought that for months... I love my sl. However I'd love to make a few modifications to it. Currently experiencing clutch issues I think once the car gets warm the clutch gets squeaky if I continue driving it after that the clutch will go to the floor and stay there..

Where is the squeak noise coming from? Standing in the driveway, have someone else work the clutch while it is running.

What is the level on the transmission fluid dipstick? It is mounted low down over on the driver side. Pretty sure it is red handled and I think the top folds over to snap it down. this paragraph gives you a good idea of the last time I checked my own transmission fluid.....

Have you done any work on the clutch, mechanical or hydraulic? Meaning friction plate, clutch Master slave cylinders, throwout bearing?

How many miles on the clutch?

Pedal going to the floor means there is no resistance 2 the slave cylinder pressing on the fork inside the transmission that separates the clutch plate from the flywheel. It is a spring loaded system so to speak, so it is likely an internal issue. Someone else who knows transmissions better hopefully come along and pick up from where I left off. It almost sounds like a spring inside the transmission is becoming fatigued as a function of time and use and therefore it loses its stiffness or resiliency, and then the pedal goes to the floor because there is no resistance. I'm assuming that if you let the car sit for a while it then becomes drivable again which implies the spring somehow recovers. Is that correct? Unless it has a severe heating issue leading to the spring losing resiliency, I can't really understand how something metal could fatigue like that and then regain its original properties, although the total travel distance of the fork is pretty small so I don't know
