SOURCE: Heavy clutch pedal operation
Unfortunately, this model uses a clutch cable. The internal shaft (in the bell housing) eventually suffers from galling and crud accumulation. This puts enormous strain on the cable which may even break. The cable is self-adjusting but occasionally may need a little manual help. If you undo the nut (far lower right side of the box in American cars) and the clips holding the fuse box to the firewall you can lift it aside and see the cable where it exits the firewall. Grasp the large spring that surrounds the sheath and gently tug upwards. You should hear a click or two or three as the adjusting ratcheting mechanism operates. If you do not, tug a little more forcefully, but do not **** the cable as you can cause the ratcheting mechanism to fail. You will now have less free play of the clutch pedal and easier operation of the clutch. Order a new cable now and carry it in your trunk. You will be needing it soon.

Had a recent similar problem. Fortunately, my replacement cable is adjustable. As the new cable stretched, I had to take a crowbar to the the throwout lever next to the battery and lever it back while pulling off the cable (towards the battery). I then lifted the fuse box (look out for the 10mm plastic nut that holds it in on the side by the driver's side fender) on the drivers side right in front of the windshield to reach down and pull the cable up enough to reach the adjustor. When it is high enough, release the locknut and turn the adjusting nut upwards about 4 turns (both nuts on my cable were 17mm and a "stubby" is handy but not necessary. Grab the end by the battery and, making sure it is seated on the groove on the transmission, pry the lever again with the crowbar and reseat tg
he cable end in the lever. I have had to readjust the cable twice more before it settled in a comfortableplace, but once you get the hang of it, it only takes about 10 minutes.
Hope this is helpful.

the car will maintain 850/900 revs in all gears on the flat and only decelerate when the engine is reving over 1500.its called auto idling valve.....(computer controlled..)

The manual transmission doesn't have one - just drain and fill plugs.The disptick is accessiable from underneath on the automatic. It is on the front of the box and only small and green, held in place with a 12mm bolt. Hope this helps, James Booth. It sounds to me like your clutch is going out.
