Can the clutch be adjusted on a 1994 ford laser gl?

The clutch in my ford laser is good, it just needs adjusting. the grip point is right at the end of the outwards pedal movement, so makes it difficult to get the car moving sometimes

The clutch is a fluid clutch system and has no adjustment. the symptoms that you describe suggest to me that the clutch is worn out and needs replacing.

SOURCE: My 1994 ford rangers clutch pedal just lost all pedal

There are two types of clutch actuators. (Mechanical & Hydtraulic)
A. For mechanical type,- Check the clutch cable as
this could be cut from wear and tear. This is easy
to replace. You can find this connected to the
pedal and the clutch lever near the transmission.
B.For hydraulic operated - Check the level of the
hydraulic oil at the cylinder of the hydraulic
actuator under the hood. This actuator is
directly connected to the pushrod driven by the
pedal. If the actuator is leaking, you have buy
a repair kit (Hyraulic clutch repair kit for Ford
Ranger 1994 MOdel.) These items must be
repaired to activate your pedal.

On my 99 camry 2.2 4 cyl my clutch pedal catches all the way out. Is it possible to adjust it so it catches farther in?


Yes, there is an adjustment that would have the effect of shifting the point at which the clutch engages, BUT, that would not correct what appears to be your problem. As the clutch wears, the point at which it engages shifts, moving further outward until it will slip even though the pedal is completely out. I suspect that your clutch is nearing its end of life.Toyotas are such reliable beasts however, it would make sense to replace the clutch. I replaced mine at 212,000 miles, and in now has 289,500 miles and is still going strong. Hope this helps. Dano

My pedals (clutch and brake) on my 1989 ford f250 xlt lariat engage when pressed but do not return to original location when no longer in use i have to pull up with the tip of my shoe how do i fix it


Hello, For the brake pedal it can be a Master cylinder problem. You would need to replace the Master Cylinder and flush the brakelines as the lines may be full of rust. It would not hurt to check your brakelines for signs of staining and wet spots.

The clutch on your model may have a return spring that is missing or weak. There is also spring tension on the throw-out bearing. You may need to adjust the clutch linkage to compensate for wear on the clutch disc. You want to adjust the freeplay so there is 1/4 to 1/2 inches of freeplay before the throwout bearing is touched.

Also check your pivot points for the pedal levers under the dash. Check your transmisson and motor mounts for movement which could cause binding. When you adjust the clutch there may be an Interlock switch for the starting circuit. Make sure this switch is working freely and that the clutch pedals' return is not held back because of this switch.

That about covers everything that moves on those two pedals. I hope my solutions are very helpful and you get your truck fixed.

How do I adjust the clutch? Clutch engages when


A high clutch pedal is good.
There should only be about a half inch of pedal freeplay, before you start to feel resistance.
So the clutch should not engage until it is almost fully released, near the top.
The makes shifting the easiest.

If the shifting is difficult when cold, then put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out when you warm up the engine.
That will warm up the transmission oil.

Of course you could also check the transmission oil level and change it.
But your question makes me believe you may need more experience on a stick shift. Make sure you do the H pattern carefully, and do not get lazy and turn it into an X pattern.

TRY THIS I BET IT'S YOUR PROBLEM

Neutral Safety Switch
  • Put the selector in the park position.
  • Loosen the screws on the neutral safety switch.
  • Remove the switch.
  • Reverse the procedures to complete the installation.
Clutch Start Switch
CAUTION
Before replacing the clutch switch or any component connected to the vehicle's control computer, disconnect the negative cable from the battery.
  • After replacing the switch, slowly work the clutch pedal and note any unusual noises or interferences with pedal movement.
  • If the switch is adjustable, make sure the clutch pedal height and push rod (free) play are correct.
  • Then check the release point of the clutch.
  • Begin by engaging the parking brake and installing wheel chocks.
  • Start the engine and allow it to idle.
  • Without depressing the clutch pedal, slowly shift the shift lever into reverse until the gears contact.
  • Gradually depress the clutch pedal and measure the stroke distance from the point the gear noise stops (this is the release point) up to the full stroke end position.
  • If the distance is not within specifications, check the pedal height, push rod play, and pedal free play.
  • If the distance is correct, check the clearance between the switch and the pedal assembly when the clutch is fully depressed.

I replaced the clutch and slave cylinder on my 1994 ford f-150 5 speed and bled the line. There is no pressure and the pedal has to go all the way down to engage/disengage the clutch. I don't know what to...


It needs to be pressure bled, you can open the bleeder valve on the slave and remove the cap and push and hold the pedal down once, if it allows fluid to flow threw the bleeder port let it bleed about a pint of fluid to completely rid system with air. Remove the hose off the master clutch assembly and have someone press down on the clutch pedal to see it the master cylinder is pressurizing, if it does reconnect and keep trying. If not remove master and use a screwdriver to push piston on the master to see if fluid comes out. If it does not pressurize you have a bad master. this is a common problem. Also you could have a bad master cylinder or slave so start the procedure above and if it does not pressurize up pull slave off the truck and have it tested.

Clutch self adjuster on a k reg escort van


the self adjust mechanism is made up of two pieces a pawl and ratchet. removing them is more awkward than difficult. you need to remove the clutch pedal by knocking out the pivot shaft that also supports the brake pedal just knock it out far enough to remove the clutch pedal after removing the clip. when the pedal is out you will see how it is assembled. the hardest part of the job is replacing the spring which is attached to the pedal this must be hooked back into the pedal last i find a strong piece of wire threaded through the hole in the pedal does the trick this is a job for someone who has some experience good luck

86 ford mustang 5.0 ho motor. just installed a clutch. wont go into gear. the cable has been adjusted. is there a slave cylinder adjustment too? or is the slave cylinder not workin properly


My '86 5.0 was a cable controlled clutch no slave or master cylinders. Make sure the throwout lever is seated properly, and check for movement when the clutch pedal is depressed. It should move at least .75 inches when depressed. Also make sure the bell housing is mating up to the engine completely and all bolts are tight. If all these things are ok it could be an improperly installed or wrong throwout bearing. I hope this helps. I remember what a pain that job was when I did mine esp. that screwy cable pulley thing attached to the clutch pedal. Which also may be the problem. Good luck.

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.

It sounds like it hasn't been setup right, and needs adjusting, there is an allen key bolt on the top of the pedal, try adjusting it here first, if it doesn't cure it then adjusdt it ontop of the gearbox
