Question about 1992 Honda Accord
Is there a mechanical adjustment or does it need fluid?
The clutch on the 1992 Honda Accord is hydraulically operated. It's self adjusting.
Check the fluid level of the clutch master cylinder. Only use the specified hydraulic fluid.
Total clutch pedal free play is 0.35 to 0.59 thousandths. (About 11/32nds to almost 19/32 of an inch) 9 to 15mm. This is the free play measurement of the clutch master cylinder piston, to the pushrod contacting the clutch pedal arm.
If there is no free play in this area, the clutch release bearing is in constant contact with the clutch pressure plate. (Diaphragm spring 'fingers' of the pressure plate)
Result is clutch slippage.
On the rod, (Pushrod), that comes from the clutch pedal arm to the clutch master cylinder piston, there is a locknut.
If the clutch is not fully releasing suspect, low fluid, the clutch slave cylinder, then the clutch master cylinder. (When replacing the clutch master cylinder, you have to pressure bleed it. You cannot manually bleed it out as you would for brakes)

They use a hydrolic system wich use fluid if your gears are not grabbing and its slipping no udjucment require because the cluck is bad but if you cant put it in gear when it on then its your hydrolic system

Free-Play See Figures 8, 9 and 10
The clutch free-play is adjusted automatically by a built-in clutch control mechanism. This device allows the clutch controls to self-adjust during normal operation.
The system consists of a spring-loaded gear quadrant, a spring-loaded pawl and a clutch cable which is spring-loaded to preload the release lever bearing. This compensates for movement of the release lever, as the clutch disc wears. The pawl, located at the top of the clutch pedal, engages the gear quadrant when the clutch pedal is depressed and pulls the cable through its continuously adjusted stroke. Clutch cable adjustments are not required because of this feature.

The self-adjusting feature should be checked every 5,000 miles (8,000 km). This is accomplished by ensuring that the clutch pedal travels to the top of its upward position. Grasp the clutch pedal with your hand or put your foot under the clutch pedal, and pull up on the pedal until it stops. Very little effort is required (about 10 lbs./4.5 kg). Finally, depress the clutch pedal and listen for an audible "click.'' If you hear a sound, the clutch was in need of adjustment, and it has just adjusted itself.
