The clutch pedal can be adjusted inside the truck under the dash. You need a 10mm and a 12mm open wrenches to make the adjustments.there is a 3-4 inch threaded rod that you loosen the 12mm lock nut then you can turn the rod with your fingers or the 10mm wrench. Turn the rod so it gets longer toward in the direction of the engine. then start the truck and check how the clutch feels. when it feels right then tighten up the 12mm lock nut. If this does not solve the problem then you may need a new clutch.

Check the fluid, check for leaks, if there is replace the cylinder or hose and bleed the lines of any air. There a two cylinders, the master cylinder(on the fire wall not far from the brake cylinder) and the slave cylinder(on the gearbox) i think this maybe your problem.

What can I do to adjust clutch cable on my 1989 LeBaron?


Just push and then lift the clutch pedal toward you to adjust the cable. The mechanism is above the clutch pedal and is selfadjusting as liong as you lift the pedal. If that don't work then the adjust mechanism is junk.

Clutch pedal travel is excessive. Sits about 2"


A clutch pedal takes MUCH more travel to function correctly, when compared to a brake system...

A clutch needs to be replaced (maybe) when it SLIPS, Chatters, Or fails to release...

Other than that, the clutch will need to be adjusted to allow for total release of the relese bearing when pedal is released, and full disengaugement when pedal is depressed....Have a mechanic look at the adjustement, as proper adjustment gives longer clutch life. This is a periodic adjustment item.

I cannot get the car into gear. It is a manual transmission. Is there a spot where fluid goes in for the clutch?


Your clutch is not hydraulic but is supposed to self adjust. Try the procedure below to help it adjust. If it will not adjust, the clutch may be worn out.


ADJUSTMENT

Free-Play See Figures 8, 9 and 10
The clutch free-play is adjusted automatically by a built-in clutch control mechanism. This device allows the clutch controls to self-adjust during normal operation.
The system consists of a spring-loaded gear quadrant, a spring-loaded pawl and a clutch cable which is spring-loaded to preload the release lever bearing. This compensates for movement of the release lever, as the clutch disc wears. The pawl, located at the top of the clutch pedal, engages the gear quadrant when the clutch pedal is depressed and pulls the cable through its continuously adjusted stroke. Clutch cable adjustments are not required because of this feature.

CHECKING ADJUSTMENT
The self-adjusting feature should be checked every 5,000 miles (8,000 km). This is accomplished by ensuring that the clutch pedal travels to the top of its upward position. Grasp the clutch pedal with your hand or put your foot under the clutch pedal, and pull up on the pedal until it stops. Very little effort is required (about 10 lbs./4.5 kg). Finally, depress the clutch pedal and listen for an audible "click.'' If you hear a sound, the clutch was in need of adjustment, and it has just adjusted itself.

prev.gif next.gif Clutch ADJUSTMENTS 1997-98 Models CLUTCH PEDAL HEIGHT The clutch pedal height should not be a periodic adjustment but may be checked after components of the mechanical clutch system have been replaced. The proper clutch pedal height should be 0.2 in. (5mm) above the brake pedal height If adjustment is necessary, loosen the locknut and turn the adjusting bolt until the appropriate height is reached. Once set, keep the bolt from turning and tighten the locknut to secure the adjustment. CLUTCH PEDAL FREE-PLAY The clutch pedal free-play should be checked from time-to-time in order to assure proper clutch operation. The proper clutch free-play should be 0.6-1.1 in. (15-25mm). Fig. 1: Pedal free-play is adjusted at the joint nut (2), while keeping the outer cable nuts (3) tightened around the center cable thread portion 7924hg30.gif
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. If the free-play must be adjusted, turn the joint nut (2) located at the transmission end of the clutch cable in or out, as necessary to achieve the proper play.
  3. Once the correct pedal free-play is obtained, check the free-play on the release arm (c), it should be 0.02-0.06 in. (0.5-1.5mm).
1999-01 Models These vehicles are equipped with a hydraulic clutch system. No adjustment is necessary.

Clutch bites high up on pedal movement


check clutch master cylinder rod adjustment and pedal height should be just higher than brake pedal. could try and bleed system also.
most hydraulic clutch systems have high take up points, adjust master cylinder rod, check for free play at top after adjusting if all that is O.K. then clutch plate may be nearly worn out but not slipping at this stage.

2002 Civic Dx Clutch?


i have just replaced an 03 civic ex clutch and transmission bearings due to a customer being too harsh on it. It sounds like its got a little life left in it if you are easy on it. 

if there is adjustment in this model use the below walkthrough to adjust it.

adjust the clutch pedal, 

1. if you look up on the top of the clutch pedal, the first thing you should see if a clutch pedal position switch, and right behind it there is a locknut, looens the locknut. once you loosen it, back off on the pedal position switch or adjusting bolt untill it no longer touches the clutch pedal. 

2. now behind the clutch pedal, there is a pushrod. and on that pushrod, there is a locknut, loosen that locknut. Now turn the pushrod in or out to get the desired height and stroke at the clutch pedal. 

The freeplay is the amount of push on the clutch pedal to where is starts to have resistance from the top. I have usually been told it should be set at 1 1/2-2 inches of freeplay.

Once you set it, tighten the locknut on the pushrod. With the clutch pedal released, turn in the clutch pedal position switch untill it contacts the clutch pedal. then turn it an additional 3/4 to 1 turn. And tighten the locknut.

Now on top of the clutch pedal switch, there is a clutch interlock switch. Loosen the locknut on that switch. then press the clutch pedal to the floor.

release the clutch pedal 15-20 mm (0.59-0.79 in) from the fully pressed position, and hold it there. adjust the position of the clutch interlock switch so the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position. then tighten the locknut on that switch.

Hope this helps

Clutch slipping


first i would try adjusting the clutch cable because commonly people with think that they're clutch is going out when really just the cable has gotten stretched....try adjusting that first and if that works then you should be fine for another couple thousand miles but if you want to not have to worry bout it for awhile i would just replace teh clutch assembly....usually ranges from $200 to $450 depending on the clutch set and the mechanic that does the work for you. Let me know what happens. :)

Clutch check


you have civic SI type R with the K20A engine and 6sp transmission? correct?

yes the clutch is adjustable.

  1. loosen the clutch pedal position switch(lower of the 2 switches) locknut and back off the clutch pedal position switch.
  2. loosen the clutch push-rod locknut and turn the push-rod in or out to get the desired height and stroke of the pedal.
  3. tighten the push-rod locknut
  4. with the clutch pedal released, turn the clutch pedal position switch in until it contacts the clutch pedal.
  5. turn the clutch pedal position switch in an additional 3/4 to 1 turn.
  6. tighten the clutch pedal position switch locknut.
  7. loosen the clutch interlock switch(the upper switch) locknut and then the interlock switch.
  8. press the clutch pedal to the floor.
  9. release the pedal about 1/2 in. from the fully depressed position, and hold it there. adjust the position of the interlock switch so that the engine will start with the clutch pedal in this position.
  10. tighten the interlock switch locknut.
clutch pedal stroke should be: 5.1 - 5.5 in
clutch pedal height should be: 7.76 in

if adjusting the clutch doesn't help with the transmission feeling notchy, may be the syncros.
