    if it's a hydraulic clutch system. nah, it's time for replacement since it's self-adjusting until your disc is worn down like brake pads do when they thin out

Rpms go up but speed wouldnt

There is a direct connection between rpm and road speed . IN your case if you have a manual gear box then the clutch is probably slipping(worn out or broken diaphram spring or faulty clutch m/cyl not allowing the clutch to properly engage. If you have an auto check the oil level is correct or have apressure test done on the transmission as it is probably slipping in a clutch pack or band system

if the clutch is hydrolic,sorry,there is really no adjustment. Hydriloc clutch master cylinders can be a ****** to bleed the air out and it could just take an afternoon of you and a buddy bleeding it. And remember, bleeding a clutch is different than bleeding breaks. It is a slow and time consuming process. If the pedal problem has been going on for some miles, you could also have a bad synchroniser in your trans preventing proper engaugement

How to remove the fan clutch

To remove fan clutch, you need a special clutch fan tool. Sometimes i can remove it with a large adjustable wrench while locking the water pump pulley. Remember to turn counter-clockwise.

Is clutch adjustable? Engine revs,but barely moves

it's not if you have hydraulic system.
check to see if the clutch pedal is firm and has pressure
start your engine, depress the clutch pedal and put it in gear
if it goes in gear easily and the car won't move then you need clutch

That is an auto adjusting clutch. If it is slipping then either the adjusting mechanism is broken or your clutch is worn out and needs replaced.

How do u adjust speedometer on a 96 explorer after tire size has changed

It can only be changed by a tech 2 scanned through the ECM program. Most larger tire store has a scanner to recalibrate the speedometer but the smaller tire shop will not, you can go to the transmission shop and have them also reprogram ECM to match your tire and recalibrate your transmission to your tire by raising the transmission fluid line pressure which is a must for larger diameter tire to keep the clutch pack from slipping and burning up. Good luck an hope this helps friend.

Transmission slip in drive, overdrive, and cruise control

no this is a transmission mechanical problem caused by the main clutch pack being worn out, the likage will not cause this symptom.
