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)

    Note*
    "On the pushrod going from the clu", is not a cutoff of a sentence, that is supposed to be there. Technical advice I can do. Using a keyboard seems to be beyond my expertise. lol!

I need to adjust my clutch on a 1998 ford zx2


Your vehicle has a hydraulic clutch, and there really is no "adjustment." Verify fluid level in the clutch fluid reservoir, and consider replacing clutch plates if you are experiencing slipping.

I was told the clutch on my 2003 mazda protege is hydrolic....how do I go about adjusting it


The whole idea behind the Hydralic Clutch is there is no adjustment.If the clutch is slipping then you need a new one.If you are having trouble getting it into gear then you may have a bad clutch master and or slave cylinder.Let me know if i can help.

I was driving my crv home today and the clutch went to about half pedal...Hard to get in gear...it has 135,000 miles...I was wondering if it had some adjustment on it...thank you...Doug Deatherage


It should have some adjustment to it or it may be time to replace the clutch if it is the OE Clutch that has been in service since new. Check to see that there is fluid in the Slave Cylinder Reservior and have a Mechanic adjust the clutch.

Stuggle to get get gears(1-4and reverse) in a 1995 vw chico.Is the clutch gone?


The clutch may be fine but need adjusting or bleeding (if it's a hydraulic clutch). This can also be caused by a failing throwout bearing, pressure plate, clutch fork, low fluid in a hydraulic clutch or a mechanical linkage that's out of adjustment.

Check for low fluid first because it's an easy solution. If the clutch uses a cable or linkage check the adjustment, it may need tightening.

It's important to address this soon because when you have to force a transmission into gear you're wearing out the synchronizers and you'll miss them when they're gone.

I cannot get the car into gear. It is a manual transmission. Is there a spot where fluid goes in for the clutch?


Your clutch is not hydraulic but is supposed to self adjust. Try the procedure below to help it adjust. If it will not adjust, the clutch may be worn out.


ADJUSTMENT

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.

CHECKING ADJUSTMENT
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.

The clutch is not engaging correctly- if you let clutch petal up, it slips (if you give gas it's worse). If no or little gas given, clutch slowly engages after the clutch petal is all the way up.


sounds like you may be able to adjust the clutch and correct the problem, look at the clutch cable and and adjust it some and see if it helps, if it does then adjust it til you feel it is right.

How to adjust a hydraulic clutch mazda protege 01 2 0L? or how do i change it by my self if the adjustment does not work?


With a hydraulic clutch there is no adjustment as the slave cylinder does that automatically by using the fluid.
