More than likely you have a hyd. clutch and either the slave cylinder Mounted down at the transmission is bad or the master cylinder up in the motor compartment is bad. if it is cable operated you cable may be bad. there are other things that can happen but check this first.

What is clutch drag?

Source Q: What causes my clutch to stick or drag? A: There is no single cause of a sticking clutch. Some more common reasons for a sticking clutch are:- Clutch controls are improperly adjusted. Clutch cable is collapsing.- Clutch spring tension is to tight, spring binding.- Too heavy an oil has been used in the clutch. A thick viscosity oil can cause the plates to stick, especially when cold.- Clutch oil is 'worn out' or burnt. The oil has been in the clutch to long, clutch plate wear is excessive causing slippage, or a driving style that slips the clutch. Changing the oil in a clutch often improves the situation.- Clutch plates are warped. Friction plates or metal plates may be warped.- Improper adjustment on primary drive chain/belt.Hope This Helps.
