I'm having trouble changing gears any my clutch pedal is to the floor?

(1999 Ford Explorer)
in Potwin, KS on July 03, 2014
It seems that no matter how hard I press I can't get it to go into gear. I just had my clutch changed about 8 months ago what could the issue be. Is there some sort of pressure spring on the pedal? I also just changes me IAC valve and ignition coil and it seems that my cars idle is really high now why is that?

Is the fluid level ok? If empty, find the leak and there's the bad part. If the pedal is abnormally soft you probably have a bad master or slave cylinder. If the pedal is hard then it's most likely a bad pressure plate. Did they replace the slave cylinder when replacing the clutch?-I always do on Fords with internal slaves which I believe you have.

Most likely you got a bad IAC, the connection is bad, or it's leaking. If you removed any other stuff while changing it those could be leaking. Check engine light on?
