Default Clutch Problem... pedal drops to floor, clutch stays engaged.

I had this happen once before, I replaced the clutch master cylinder and all was well again.

Now it's doing it again, the pedal will drop and the clutch is engaged, but this time I pull the pedal back up with my foot and everything is ok again.

It was low on fluid, I refilled it, will air in the system cause it to act like this?

Air could cause problems. Try bleeding the line.

It was the clutch master, replaced it but now I cannot bleed the system.

The fitting that is supposed to loosen so I can bleed will not come loose. If I twist on it any harder it will twist off the tube.

Will these system sort "bleed themselves" if I dont bleed it?

The pedal is very mushy, but it works.

You should bleed it. Try some PB Blaster on the stubborn fitting.
