Question about 1991 Mercury Capri

1 Answer

Seems to be clutch problem

Yesterday, I started my '91 Capri (had just driven from Texas to Alabama without any trouble at all) and attempted to put it in 1st gear--when suddenly the clutch seemed much too easy to depress. I immediately noticed the car would not go into gear. I turned the car off, put it in 1st--then when I attempted to started it, even with clutch depressed, turning the key over made the entire car move forward--as though clutch was not even depressed. Is there something that could suddenly come loose (ie. a clutch cable or "linkage"???) I'm no mechanic, but I also am in financial crisis and have to try to troubleshoot this myself---if possible. Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have a 91 mercury capri xr2 5 speed and suddenly ive noticed that the clutch is not engaging synchronically as it usually does, ill let off the clutch pedal and the rpm's will shoot up way faste

It sounds like you have a worn out clutch. You need to remove the transmission and replace the clutch assembly and have the flywheel machined. Since this is a very expensive repair have a shop confirm my guess.

Solved most of this myself. Changed ING. module which solved spark problem. The injectors still would not function, help came from JUSTANSWERS by idenifying a relay tucked between the left headlight motor and the coolant recovery canister. Like the IGN. module, this relays not cheap. I found a $5 dollar used replacement from a self-pull wrecking yard from it's sister car, a 1988 mazda 323.
