This is a Hydrolic System ,thus there is no Adjustment for what you discribe, You will need a New Clutch Assemble. I Recomend replacing ALL Clutch Parts while Trans is out. Uncluding All the Parts Listed Reliece Bearing, Clutch Disc, Pressure plate,And Renew Slave Cylinder FLUID.

Wnating to know how I can know or tell if im gonna need a entire clutch set or jus a part to my clutch for 1997 nissan pathfinder SE it was high reving by its self when i would be driving for past week or...

Start by having the clutch adjustment checked by a knowlegdable mechanic. If you need to replace the clutch, yes it all needs to be replaced, and the flywheel resurfaced.

Meanwhile, quit driving the unit as you are overheating the clutch and flywheel by slipping.

Second clutch slipping after only 60,000 mi. first got 121,000

SLACKEN the clutch cable. I had the same problem with my wife`s Legacy - as the clutch plate wears, the cable tightened up. It started to slip. When I asked the Subaru dealer to adjust it they TIGHTENED it even more, and said the clutch was slipping because worn out, and needed replacing. It took three minutes to slacken it off myself and the car has now done another 20,000 miles with no clutch problems. No wonder Subarus are now so rare in rural areas! The adjustment is right at the back of the engine in the middle under the firewall. You may need top adjust the "HillHolder" cable as well. DON`T PANIC! It`s easy AS

Clutch slipping

A clutch is usually adjusted from underneath the car if it's a mechanical clutch.

Your comment that there is very little play at the top indicates an improperly adjusted clutch. You should have about 1/2 - 3/4 inch of play before feeling the clutch in the pedal.
