Its fairly easy to determine if your clutch is hydraulic or cable. Check in the engine compartment against the firewall on the drivers side, and see if there are one or two hydraulic reservoirs side by side. If there are two, the far left one is for the clutch, and you have a hydraulic clutch.
If you have a cable clutch, the cable should be clearly seen by the side of the brake hydraulic reservoir, a rather thick cable running from the firewall to the bell housing area.
There are two possibilities for adjusting - the adjusting nuts are either at the point where the outer part of the cable enters the firewall to connect to the clutch pedal, or where the inner cable connects to the release bearing fork.
To adjust, release the outer nut (there should be two, one is a locknut) and take up the slack by screwing the other nut inward.
Make sure you don't overtighten the cable, this could lead to your clutch slipping and you will need to replace the clutch plate sooner.
A hydraulic clutch is usually not adjustable, so if you have a problem there, take it to a service station.
Have fun.

SOURCE: trouble changing gears 1st and 2nd

If the clutch feels firm with no play u may have worn syncronizer's in the trans, take it to trans shop and have them road test it, they will not charge in most cases.

1993 primera hw du I adjust clutch also hw du ino if its cable clutch or hydraulic


If it hydraulic there will be a master cylinder ( similar looking to the brake M/Cyl and close to it). There will be a pipe from this unit down to the clutch slave cylinder. If it is cable there will be a cable from the clutch pedal to the bell housing. And if you have to ask these questions I would suggest that you get the services of an accredited clutch/brake specialist as it will be cheaper in the long run.

Does a 1993 nissan primera have a hydraulic clutch or cable clutch also either ither how do I adjust it as its crunching in 1st & reverse also starting to crunch in 4th


Well I don't what type of clutch you have but I can tell you how to find out. Open your hood look on firewall drvrside, if you have two fluid containers you have hydrolic clutch. If you have one then you have cable/linkage type.

Crunching when changing gears on a pajero


check the oil level of the gearbox, if level is low or oil is too thin will cause it to crunch. put an 80w90 gear oil into it if needs fill or change/ also check the clutch is fully disengaged. maybe clutch hydraulics have air in the system, this will reduce the travel of the clutch fork and not fully disengage the clutch. to see if its the clutch hydraulics select 1st gear push in the clutch and start the engine, if it starts to creep forward check out the hydraulics. if all this ok, prob be the synchro rings internal in the gearbox

Manual clutch not working effeciently


If the car has a few miles on it, the clutch may be worn. To test this, put the gearbox in 3rd and let the clutch out slowly while pressing the brake hard. The engine should stall immediately. If it runs on a bit before stalling, the clutch is worn.

At the other extreme, if the clutch is not releasing fully, which causes crunching of the gears, either the clutch hydraulic line needs bleeding, or the clutch cable needs adjusting up, whichever type it is.

My son has a '91 Pulsar, 5 door hatch. When he changes into reverse, the gear "grates", we beleive the clutch needs to be adjusted, is this correct? (he has no bother with any other gear...


When the engine is idling and the gear box selector is in Neutral all the internals of the gearbox are rotating. Pushing in the Clutch disconnects the drive from the engine to the gearbox but it takes a few seconds for the gears in the box to cease rotating. All the forward gears have synchromesh so there will be no crunching noise ifa forward gear is selected immediately the clutch is pushed in before allowing the gears to stop spinning. On the other hand Reverse has No synchros and therefore selecting reverse before waiting a few seconds for the gears to stop spinning will produce the crunching noise you have described.
So it pays to wait a second or two after pushing in clutch before Reverse is selected to minimise the crunch and if the clutch appears to be working correctly in normal driving ,then no adjustment is necessary.

Problem with 1993 nissan altima PLEASE HELP


It is a clutch problem. Do you know if you have a hydraulic clutch or a clutch cable? If you have a cable, it might need adjusted. If you have hydraulic you might have a bad slave cylinder or clutch master cylinder.
