Clutch on 1994 Ford laser not working. Car has been sitting in garage for 12 months. What do I need to look for?

Does the car have a cable clutch or hydraulic? If cable, there will be a rather hefty cable leading from the firewall (engine side) to the bell housing. If hydraulic, there will be a second fluid reservoir next to the brake fluid reservoir, engine compartment.
Hydraulic clutch: check for fluid level. If low, check for fluid leaks at the servo cylinder, that is the cylinder that operates the release fork on the bell housing, check for fluid leaks from the main cylinder. If it leaks, it will leak inside the car where the clutch pedal rod connects to the main cylinder. Any leaks you find on the main or servo can be repaired with a kit from your spares dealer.
If cable clutch - Check your pedal. If it is low, the cable can be adjusted to take up the slack. On older vehicles, I have found that the firewall itself sometimes corrodes if the cable is anywhere near the battery, and then adjustment does not help. The firewall has to be reinforced first.
If the clutch pedal feels good, have someone work the pedal while you have a look underneath at the release lever (or in the engine compartment if front wheel drive). See if it works well.
As a last resort, the friction plate or pressure plate could be worn, and this will mean removing the gearbox if your car is rear wheel drive. On most front wheel drive cars the clutch / pressure plate can be replaced while the gearbox is in place, a 45 minute job.

How to ajust the clucth

If you have a metal cable going to your clutch slave cylinder which is mounted on the gearbox bell housing (widest part of the gearbox) there is an adjuster on it. If there is only a hydlaulic pipe going to the slave cylinder then I'm afraid there is no adjustment to be made on your clutch, so, it needs either a new clutch or you have an oil leak onto you clutch pad which needs attending to, so, it's a trip to the local shop.

I have in my range rover 1996 year a clutch proble the pedal is down and dont come up self what to do

hi there are three possabilities to this one there could be a leak of fluid to the clutch master or slave cylinder check the footwel drivers side for a damp carpet or underneath the car for for any new leaks check the fluid level of your brakes and clutch as the resovoirs are often shared ,initially try topping the level up and bleeding the air from the slave cylinder near the gearbox to engine bell housing area and see if that improves things
Or a common fault with land rovers is the clutch fork may have snapped which requires the either engine or gearbox removal to replace the fork with a new one
Or the clutch thrust bearing has worn it way through the fingers of the clutch diaphragm and dropped through which also requires engine or gearbox removal to replace the clutch
good luck hope its only the minor problem

Fork engaging slave cylinder from tranny. (91 3000GT, mitsu)

Called a clutch fork Holds the thrust bearing right? and goes through the clutch (Bell) housing Got to be careful here or Is it the rod that goes directly into the slave cylinder? Either way as long as the rest of the cars ok it's worth keeping If it's the clutch fork you going to have to remove gearbox (Not the end of the world) Part won't be that expensive

If the clutch slave cylinder on my 2005 Saturn Vue is internal to the transmission, how would the fluid have poured out onto my garage floor? I think the transmission dude might be pulling my leg to the...

No its internal meaning that its in the bell housing.The bell housing is bolted to the gearbox to hous the clutch befor being bolted to the engine.It has no seal on it.So when your slave cylinder leaks,The fluid drips from the bell housing.And the only way to get at it is to remove the gearbox.

Clutch stopped working

The clutch reservoir is on the bulkhead / firewall by the brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet / hood. Its likely to be low or out of fluid. If this is the case its more than likely that you have a leak from the master cylinder or slave cylinder. First have a look from the clutch pedal side for any signs of fluid around the firewall area. Then follow the pipe from the master cylinder down to the gearbox bellhousing. The slave cylinder is what it attaches to. Chances are there will be a leak from under the rubber boot where the rod exits. In some cases you will have to remove it from the bell housing to check for leak. You can usually leave the pipework on at this stage. Carefully prize of the dust cover and check for leaks. Be careful not to let it drip in your eyes. If its leaking remove completely and replace it or the seals. Refit and bleed the clutch after topping up reservoir.
