IME there is always a change in pedal feel with any clutch hydraulic related 
failure. A leaky slave that needs to be pumped you can detect the pedal 
feeling soft and sometimes even sticking to the floor. As you pump the pedal 
and draw in some new fluid you can feel the pedal get harder to push as the 
slave starts actually pushing against the pressure plate diaphram spring.
