mine is the same way but i have no idea how old the clutch is. i feel like something is wrong and mine might need a new clutch kit installed soon. i will probably try bleeding this one some more to see if it helps though

no air in the system, and the firewall is not flexing either.

When my previous mechanic redid the clutch on my ‘97, it engaged tight to the floor. He said it would self bleed and I didn’t really believe it, but over the course of a week it it resolved. I’d give it a week or two and see if the pedal height at engagement comes up.
