This is a hydraulic clutch, it is self adjusting, it sounds like you need to replace the clutch because it has adjusted out as far as it can. I think you are saying it slips when you try to accelerate, that most definitely means the clutch is worn out.

2002 toyota celica clutch is there an adjustment or is it hydraulic?

It is hydraulic and has no adjustment, it self adjusts as the disk wears out. If the pedal is high up when it engages the clutch and harder to push than before you need a new clutch.

85 toyota pickup clutch wont engage

The gear box should be okay. Check the clutch-watch if the clutch fork on the bell housing moves when someone presses the clutch. If it doesn't move, the cable needs adjusting, or if hydraulic clutch diagnose the clutch master and slave cylinders. Either one should cause the clutch fork to move and engage the clutch.

The gears are incredibly sloppy in my toyota celica 90' , some friends have suggested that it is just an adjustment with the clutch, as the clutch is on the floor, where is the adjustment? Imogen

make sure you don't have a leak in the clutch master or slave cylinder on the transmission as that would cause the pedal to go all the way to the floor. Check your clutch fluid level, then go back inside the car and look behind the clutch pedal like up towards the top of the clutch rod right by the firewall. You will see and adjustment nut, although I doubt that the adjustment is the problem. How long have you had this clutch in? You may need to have the clutch replaced.

I have a 77 Toyota PU. New Clutch installed. Slave and throughout adjusted properly. Adjustment under dash adjusted full out. Still I have to jam the clutch all the way to the floor and barely able to get...

if it worked good before the clutch kit was installed , but not after then the clutch installation is incorrect
probably find the the clutch plate has been installed incorrectly
with a correctly fitted clutch kit , there is no necessity to change pedal height or anything else

There is an adjustment for the clutch pedal under the dash where the push rod goes thru the firewall. There is only aprx. 1/2" of adjustment so be careful when making an adjustment, if your clutch is slipping then you need to shorten the throw of the push rod.

Clutch problem

The rod at the end of the slave cylinder can be adjusted. make sure clutch pedal has no more than an inch and a half of free play. If free play is within the 1.5" & still have problem with clutch disengaging, chances are clutch is worn
