Sounds like your pressure head springs are weak. Has the clutch and pressure head ever been replaced? If not I would say this is most likely the problem.

Under the dash look to see if there is a spring attached to the petal or maybe under the hood. Or you might have something getting in the was of the petal arm. Good Luck and PEACE

SOURCE: the clutch is not engaging when pushed. ALthough

Does your clutch feel soft or spongy ? Not sure if it would have a slave cylinder on that model or not ? if so there should be a reservoir under the hood for fluid, check and see, if so add some brake fluid and see if that works. Could also be a bent fork which has come off the throw out bearing.

SOURCE: how do you adjust the clutch on a 2000 ford focus

The only adjustment is for the pedal itself. There is a master cylinder at the top of the pedal that makes the pressure which travels thru the metal line to a rubber hose to a metal line which goes to the slave cylinder which is what actually pushes the clutch rod in the transmission. Sounds to me like your problem is in the Master cylinder part. It is like the brake master cylinder, there is a rod with rubber cups on it, and it sounds like the edges of the cup folded over backwards and hung up inside the cylinder, when you forced the pedal back up they folded back the right way, and now they are **** up a little making them not want to push as easy. This problem will happen again, so You better start pricing a new clutch master cylinder. From what I saw while researching this It looks like you can buy the master and slave cylinder as a set. If any pieces of the master cylinder rubber cups came off during this they may work their way thru the system to the slave cylinder and cause problems there as well. The reason behind thinking its the master and not the slave is, if it were the slave that hung up the pedal would have come back up since it has a spring on it.

SOURCE: 01 focus zx3 overheating and clutch problems

I'm not sure but I believe the clutch pedal has a cable adjustment . usually its two nuts one on top of the other, hold one and turn the other until desire pedal is achieved.
However ,if its a hydralic clutch I'll let the shop manual give you the bad news. Your gonna need the Shop Manual any way because it will tell you how to adjust "pedal free play" which is what your describing.

First check that both fans WORK.How? Fabricate two jumper wires and remove the connectors from the fan(s)
one at a time and jump them from the battery one at a time. If they work ok if not replace the one that doesn't work.
Next find the coolant temperature sensor check it for resistance , wiring ,and to see if its signal is making it to the ECU. Then check if the ECU is telling the relays to turn on the appropriate fan. Remember one fan is for engine cooling the other is for the condenser of the a/c system. If you turn on a/c it should work.
Use shop manual for more detail testing and specs. I'll help you any way I can. Good luck

Car will not accelerate when gas pushed

Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

Hi! I was driving my Land Rover freelander 2.0D. I felt that the clutch was little bit slow when I was pushing it I contiuned driving and was accelerating to third gear. But since I would make a right turn...

One of three things 1) All the hydraulic fluid was suddenly lost from your clutch - check the fluid reservoir level under the hood on the fire wall bulk head 2) the clutch lever or release bearing has broken 3) the clutch diaphragm spring on the clutch plate has broken These last two can be checked by waggling the end of the clutch lever but any repair requires the transmission to be removed. Might be a good time to change the clutch and bearing while you are it.

99 rodeo Clutch bearing pulls out

If this is a hydraulic clutch, ask your mechanic to change the master cylinder (slave cylinder). This could have a leak (which he/she should have found, and checked this). If not, the cable may be too loose, or is not hooked up correctly.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My clutch catches at the last 25% on the top is there a way to adjust it so it will catch lower?

No the clutch is self adjusting and if it drives the last bit then your clutch is r/s
In other words worn out and on its last legs and you will soon get clutch when you take off or put your foot down to pass another car THEN its time to take it in and have a new complete assy fitted.
Sorry about that have a goodday
