It's probably a hydrolic clutch and on those there is no adjustment you'll probably just have to bleed the clutch. There is a bleeder screw similar to one for disc brakes on the top or side of the clutch slave cylinder.

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 the clutch on a 1999 Ford escort ZX2


The clutch is not adjustable it is fully hydraulic. That means it is self adjusting, if the clutch pedal engages high on the pedal and the clutch is hard to push you need a new clutch plate and pressure plate.

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.

My clutch is barely engaging even when depressed all the way to the floor. Can it be adjusted or dose it need a clutch replacement?


I would try adjusting the clutch master such that the point of engagement at the pedal, is further from the floor. This will effectively increase the travel of the clutch slave and possibly solve your problem. The clutch master pushrod should have an adjustment behind the pivot at the pedal bracket. Usually a lock nut has to be loosened off a little and then the rod screwed out of it's holder to effectively lengthen it.

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.

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 suddenly not engaging until pedal completely released


Two things, first does it slip at all? If you put it in high gear and hammer it, does the engine rev up? If so, you may have a spring problem causing the clutch to not fully contact the pressure plate and will result in this problem.

Is the fluids in the master cylinder full? Do you have a leak? Bad pressure? I'd check those before going on to more difficult remedies.

Personally, by the way you're describing it, I'd say it's a spring. Especially since it's engaging and disengaging correctly. Maybe an adjuster somewhere came loose? I'm not sure with the Explorer, but I know my friends `00 F-150 had an adjuster snap causing a very similar problem but the clutch just wouldn't grab at all due to his problem.
