    do you mean DISengage? This is a self adjusting clutch. Check for signs of leaking around master and slave cylinder- it may be time to replace one of them.

Under the hood you will find the clutch fluid reservoir check that for low fluid. It's possible you have a minor leak on the slave cylinder.

Had a new clutch in chrysler voyager 2.5 td only done few thousand miles clutch bite soon as move pedal up car to get in gears have to start car in gear can feel car moving slightly

check to see if you can adjust the clutch cable and make it a little tighter. they stretch over time. The amount of play is only a 1/2 inch or so. have someone sit inside and push the clutch peddle in and out and see where it starts to move. Loosen the locking nuts and adjust thread play till the peddle engages about a inch or two from the top. Not near the floor. It is not hard to do when you look at it closely.

Car has difficulty going in gear even if pedel is fully down

The clutch is not fully disengaging. Adjust the clutch cable to obtain a 1/2 inch of free play at the top of pedal stroke. If clutch adjustment is not correct, damage to synchronizers or clutch release bearing will occur. Your clutch should begin to engage about an inch off the floor when releasing the clutch pedal.

How to adjust 95 geo tracker clutch

you meant dis-engage im sure.
pedal up is engaged,
pedal at floor dis-engages it.
my guess, is the clutch drags unless i push the clutch pedal 100%
to the floor.
1: bad cable is 90% cause. non last this long.
2: no free play is way too loose.
3: broken lever on the pedal top. caused by #1

all fail modes covered here.

Clutch pedal travel

Your pedal height may be adjustable by a stopper bolt at top of pedal. You would have to check the specification for your car. Most important that the pedal has about a half inch free travel before clutch begins to engage. You need that free play to ensure the release bearing (the throw-out bearing) is not touching the fingers on the pressure plate when not engaged. If it always is touching, it will be rolling around constantly and will go out prematurely.
Your new clutch will allow gear engagement sooner as the clutch pedal is released. I mean gears will engage just as pedal is lifting off from floor. You should notice that difference-the old clutch would have taken longer pedal travel from floor before releasing.

Clutch pedal has about 1/2 inch of play before engaging, from the floor. How can I adjust this?

there is a very small amount of adjustment on the rod which pushes in the master cylinder piston. what you are talking about however, the engagement point, is that your clutch pressure plate and disc need to be replaced. they are worn out and not releasing until maximum movement of the slave cylinder. this will not be cheap.

1985 jeep cherokee how far from the floor does the clutch engage?

In just about all vehicles you should have about 1/2 to 3/4 inch free-play before clutch begins to release. Adjustment is done this way , Not from the floor up...

Clutch stays down, has about half an inch of play below carpet level, still able to shift but have to use toe of shoe to pull pedal up. happens two or 3x a day

you have 4 cyl or V6 engine, how much free play you have on clutch pedal (take your hand press clutch in untill gets harder to push in) should only have about 1" free play, and also when you release clutch while in gear should start engaging about 1 1/2" up when releasing

Put in gear clutch feels good does not move like it's suppose 2 it's a stickshift

How is it suppose to ? What is 2 ?Does the clutch engages right away when you release the pedal or almost at the end (pedal up), did you check the freeplay on the pedal ? Should have free play, push clutch pedal by hand and you should move it a half inch before feeling resistance.
