when holding my clutch in at stop light it goes away and sticks on the floor. will not disengage, but can pull pedal back to normal and it works. It is like its bleeding off. on a 2000 f350 with diesel and 64000 miles

It's possible the brake fluid in the clutch is contaminated with metals.

These metals can cause the brake fluid to boil, resulting in an intermittent clutch pedal problem.
Since the pedal problem is intermittent, I don't think an external leak is going to be this problem. Drain and fill the clutch fluid. Use DOT 4 brake fluid.

If that doesn't work replace the clutch master and slave cylinders.
