Odd clutch issue

So driving home the other day my clutch feels a bit odd. It has stayed this way since after my hopes it would clear up. Basically as you let your foot off it used to engage right of the floor and the car was always a bit jumpy when shiftting, in a good way. Now it engages near the top and the clutch engages so soft I feel like I'm driving a geo metro! All the harshness is gone and it dosn't feel right, clutch and flywheel were done in January and I have around 15k kms on it. Besides this the clutch works perfectly it's just soft and slugish on engagment. Very odd any thoughts?

Possibly air in the system, so bleeding may help. The fact that the problem just started right away is a bit odd though.

Unless you've been abusing the hell out of it, clutch wear should not remotely be an issue, so I'd say if bleeding doesn't solve it, it's an odd issue.

Might be worth checking your engine mount. My shifting improved 1000% after putting a new pedro one in.

Did the mount like three months ago, and shifting is fine it's just engagment point on the pedal and the resistance in the pedal arn't there. It just feels light and the engagement point is just off. Might just take it in since the clutch is under warreny still.

So I have yet to get a chance to try a bleed but another thing I noticed that may be an issue is that when I let off the clutch pedal I can hear a fluid sucking sound. Almost a gurgling sound, normal? Almost sounds like a bad seal in the master cylinder? Thoughts??
