Sorry your problem is easy ...all you need is a complete new clutch assy .
As the clutch is a self adjusting unit and the only thing that causes it is either you use it like a hotrod and slip the clutch when powering up OR rideing the clutch when on hills or at the lights,,,or the car has done a lot of miles..
But if the clutch drives 1/2 from the top then replace the lot dont replace just centre plate you want the
complete Kit

Can you adjust the clutch on a 2002 hyundai accent


The clutch in this car is a hydraulic design and is self adjusting. If you have a hard pedal with high pedal engagement or a slipping condition you are going to need a new clutch installed.

Can you adjust the clutch pedal on a 1990 full size bronco


The clutch is operated hydraulically, and there is no adjustment. If your problem is that the clutch will not disengage or is hard to disengage you may be low on fluid or have air in the line. There may be a leak either at the master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder. Bleeding the slave cylinder may restore pedal pressure. If the problem is that the clutch engages high on the pedal the problem is likely a worn clutch disc.

The clutch on my 1998 legacy has just been replaced, but there is about four inches free travel in clutch pedal before it engages the throwout bearing. This leaves only about 2-3 inches at the bottom of...


You want to shorten the cable. Loosen the lock nut.Turn the cable adjuster clockwise to shorten the cable. This takes some skill, and knowledge to get the clutch adjusted just right. You want about 1/2 inch of free play in the pedal. All of this varies according to the wear on your clutch. You say your clutch is new, so acheving a proper adjustment should be no problem. Keep tweaking the adjustment to get it catching where you like it.

Engine has no pull


I'm not sure what you mean by "the RPMs go way". If you meant that the RPM goes up high, then it sounds like the clutch is slipping. I think your model will have a hydraulic clutch, which is non-adjustable, so the clutch will need to be replaced. This sounds the most likely scenario, given the high clutch pedal take-up point you described. However, if you meant that the RPM's go away (or drop down), then it might be an ignition misfire, but I need more info.
