Drove my car to work yesterday, everything was fine. Tried to drive it home and the clutch wont fully engage in first or second. It will engage properly in 3&4 but only if I baby it around. Any kind of acceleration and it breaks loose. It did get really cold while I was at work but it is a bit warmer today and still the same problem.

Any ideas on what it could be becasue I really dont want to have to drop the tranny again.

So its slipping? If thats the case then go ahead and plan on pulling the tranny, you can try to adjust the master cylinder rod some, make sure the hydrolics aren't preloading the clutch.

Ya its barely moving its slipping so bad. Feels like the pressure plate isn't working at all.

What do you think could have happened during the six hours it was parked that could have made it go from working perfectly to slipping like mad so i know what to look for and fix so it doesn't happen again?
