SOURCE: How do I adjust the clutch? Clutch engages when

A high clutch pedal is good.
There should only be about a half inch of pedal freeplay, before you start to feel resistance.
So the clutch should not engage until it is almost fully released, near the top.
The makes shifting the easiest.

If the shifting is difficult when cold, then put the transmission in neutral and let the clutch out when you warm up the engine.
That will warm up the transmission oil.

Of course you could also check the transmission oil level and change it.
But your question makes me believe you may need more experience on a stick shift. Make sure you do the H pattern carefully, and do not get lazy and turn it into an X pattern.

Clutch adjustment, LANOS DAEWOO.


The clutch is hydraulic and is self adjusting (no adjustment provide for). If you have clutch engagment problems your clutch is most likely worn out.

Had new clutch fitted and clutch now very fierce can ig be adjuste i am lurchinf forward all the time.1998 puma


Clutches can be adjusted. But usually that is to compensate for the wear that it undergoes. U adjust it to bring the engagement point up but apparently you are used to it all the way down and have gotten accustomed to it. U replaced the clutch because it was all the way down.

Anyway, what you need to do is get used to the new clutch. What I did to get better control was to put the heel of my left foot on the floorboard and pivot my left foot up and down on the clutch pedal. Gives you much better control of the pedal and after a while it will be automatic with no hassles. Try it.

Just put in a new clutch on a 97 civic ex, clutch not engaging. how do I fix this?


U need to adjust the clutch so that it engages at about half peddle. Sounds like it is not adjusted at all. You can go to public library and check out a service manual to tell you how to adjust it.

Cant get 2nd and 4th gear on my citroen relay 57 plate


Hi Colin, What happened to your Lotus? The problem with your vehicle could be broken or damaged engine mountings or adjustments of the linkages if the problem is failure to engage, but if you are engaging the gears and then the gears pop out, the problem is inside the gearbox with the syncromesh cones and clutches. Lotus is better than Citroen anyway! Regards John

Low idle when engine is warm


Idle is normally set a bit higher anyway for a cold engine. If the warm idle is OK when the clutch is not engaged and gearbox in neutral, then it points to some kind of severe friction in the area of the clutch throw-out bearing, which may be seizing up, or the clutch pressure plate fingers, one of which may be broken off. If the idle is the same, then that simply needs adjusting.


Is there any odd noise when the clutch is depressed, like a low growl? That will be the bearing. You could have someone listen next to the clutch bell housing while you work the clutch pedal, to try to localise it.

I have a 92 f-150 custom ford with a 4.9 straight six. It seems when I go to put it in reverse it acts like the cluch is not fully engaging. this has a manual trans. is there an adjustment for the cluch....


The clutch is not releasing fully when changing gears. Does the pedal go down quite a way before it seems to be contacting anything? The reason the forward speeds don't make noise is that they have synchromesh gears, which is a pre-engagement mechanism that allow smooth noiseless shifts (up to a point anyway!). I think this a hydraulic clutch mechanism and the lower slave cylinder at the clutch bell housing is the adjusting point for correcting the clutch free play. It should be set so that the internal release arm is nearly touching the throwout bearing inside the bell housing. The problem may also be that the slave cylinder is loose on it's mounting. The clutch pedal should move about 1/2 to 3/4 inch before it starts to push on the shaft from the master cylinder. Hope some of this helps!

Clutch needs adjustment


as the clutch wears the "free pedal" is reduced ... its easy to adjust "free pedal" and important to do so .. when there is very little or no free movement above where the clutch engages/disengages then the clutch starts to wear rapidly ... if there are no other symptoms like clutch chatter, slipping or noise then the clutch plate likely has some life left if it is adjusted properly and promptly ..

1991 Toyota pickup 4WD clutch slipping


There is an adjustment for the clutch pedal under the dash where the push rod goes thru the firewall. There is only aprx. 1/2" of adjustment so be careful when making an adjustment, if your clutch is slipping then you need to shorten the throw of the push rod.
