There is a little tube that your clutch cable runs threw on the fire wall, make sure it is lubed up. If it is not you will break the tube and have real problems.

1988 mighty max. When I depress the Clutch, it has gotten increasingly Harder to Push in. It got so hard, it Pulled the Firewall in.

Does you clutch pedal assemble freely move without the cable attatch,if that good you need the cable and if it still stiff the clutch fork is not pivoting that good, also check you body ground,the cable may have acted as a ground system to the chasis

Hard to press clutch pedal

Hi, if its a cable clutch , replace the cable with a new one etc. is there a winning noise from the back of the engine with the clutch depressed, if so , could be the release bearing that's the problem, you might get some vibration through the clutch pedal if this is the case, good luck.

Can't shift when car is cold

I have a1998 VW jetta vr6 glx with the same problem and living in New England it gets really cold, but i did some research and it worked.... With the car in neutral and the E-break engaged, reach down and pull up on the clutch pedal, thus "resetting" the tension in the cable, it will be a bit higher on your foot and the release/engage point will be higher as well but i did this when it was 10*f and i could not get any gear, after pulling up on the clutch, shifts with ease,,,, such a relief

Clutch pedal suddenly goes to the floor, no longer [dis]engaging the clutch

I found that having a wood stick on the clutch pedal down to the floor all night (the other end of the stick held by the seat. oh yeah !!! ) would help to ease shifting for the first hour the next morning, then it would come back stiff and hard to engage in gear.
