Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
My 97 explorer awd 4.0 clutch pedal is real soft doesn't seem to fully disengage the clutch making it hard to start is there an adjustment to the pedal or am going to have to replace the booster or what do i need to do? thx
You could have either a failing master or slave cylinder or the hydraulic fluid level is very low which could also be from a leaking master or slave cylinder; check for wet-looking areas around both.
The master is located either inside or under the hood on the firewall; the slave is located on the transmission housing itself.
Until you locate the problem, use neutral gear position when starting so the tranny doesn't drag and load the starter.
After replacing the defective cylinder, be sure to bleed the lines (like when doing brake repairs) to avoid having an ineffective or just spongy pedal again.
