Adjust your clutch pedal free play (clearance). It should be about 12mm only.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: After bleeding my hydraulic clutch I still don't

Did you replace the slave or master cylinder or both? WHats the reason for needing to bleed it? If it seemed like it was out of adjustment and you bled it, it may indicate that either of these parts are allowing fluid past when under pressure. If you replaced one and not the other, that could be where your problem lies. If you replaced both, then try loosening the bleeder and leave it undone overnight. This should allow the air out.

Clutch pedal travel


Your pedal height may be adjustable by a stopper bolt at top of pedal. You would have to check the specification for your car. Most important that the pedal has about a half inch free travel before clutch begins to engage. You need that free play to ensure the release bearing (the throw-out bearing) is not touching the fingers on the pressure plate when not engaged. If it always is touching, it will be rolling around constantly and will go out prematurely.
Your new clutch will allow gear engagement sooner as the clutch pedal is released. I mean gears will engage just as pedal is lifting off from floor. You should notice that difference-the old clutch would have taken longer pedal travel from floor before releasing.

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 have a 98 cherokee sport. clutch pedal is releasing right off the floor and some times i have no clutch at all i have replaced the clutch master twice and the slave twice, air checked the line. i have...


About the only thing that would be left to check would be that the clutch pedal free travel is correct. It should be about ¼ inch (measured at the pedal rubber) before the push rod that links the pedal arm to the piston in the master cylinder contacts the piston
If free travel is incorrect, adjust by first loosening the locknut on the rod at the end where it attaches to the pedal arm and turning the rod in either direction to obtain the correct free travel. One adjusted retighten locknut.
You appear to have eliminated all the other possibilities, so the only other reasons for your problems could be that the clutch plate is warped and and therefore not disengaging fully or the pressure plate diaphragm spring is faulty and not allowing full disengagement.

On my 98 firebird on cold mornings the clutch will not release. i have had a couple people tell me it was the slave cylinder. what do yall think it could be?


Well, there are a number of areas.
By release you can mean the clutch will not disengauge, or the clutch will not grip, after letting off of the pedal...

THE key is exactly how does the clutch FEEL? A slave would feel like more pedal travel, before any clutch depression happens. If you had a slave issue, you would normally be running through fluid.

Not Disengauge...So, yes, you can have slave or m/c issues, but does the pedal depression feel any different? There is a pilot bearing that supports the front end of the trans input shaft. This bearing is often brass and needs lubrication when apart.

If not clutch grab, while releasing the pedal, this can be the hydraulics or a pressure plate issue. If out of adjustment or worn, the pressure plate sometimes will bind on itself and not release, usually releasing suddenly, eventually....Tests would be to release hydraulic pressure, while car is safely on stands, and with qualified assistant.

Burnt smell from clutch when im in 3rd gear


It sounds like the clutch is close to being worn out as the pressure plate is not gripping the clutch plate with sufficient force when power is applied. Before you consider replacing any thing, first check the clutch free travel adjustment because as the clutch plate wears the free travel does decrease and if there is no free travel, then there will be some releasing action on the pressure plate allowing cluth plate slip. Hydraulic setups are usually self adjusting but you should check the free travel of the clutch pedal which should be about 3/8 to 1/2 inch measured at the pedal rubber. This is done by adjusting the push rod that links the pedal arm to the piston in the master cylinder. Adjust by first loosening the locknut on the rod at the end where it attaches to the pedal arm and turning the rod in either direction to obtain the correct free travel. One adjusted retighten locknut.
For a cable setup there should at least 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable before it starts to move the clutch fork on the outside of the bell housing. To adjust, hold the operating fork so that the release bearing is touching the fingers of the pressure plate. You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork when the pedal is depressed.
If all adjustments are correct and clutch is still slipping then the pressure plate diaphragm spring has lost its tension and /or the clutch plate has worn down to the rivets. Either way you will have to do a complete clutch rebuild.

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. :)
