On the transmission, where the cable adjusts, loosen the adjuster enough to have enough slack in the cable to remove the hardware holding the cable on the release lever. Then from under the dash, unhook the cable from the clutch pedal. Lift the cable end up off the pedal hook.

Fix clutch cable


Removal
Raise the rear of the vehicle and support if securely on jackstands after loosening the lug bolts of the left rear wheel. Take off the wheel.
Find the clutch release lever on the upper left side of the transaxle and unhook the cable from the lever.
Remove the pedal cluster and unhook the clutch cable from the clutch shaft.
Pull the clutch cable forward, through the center tunnel, and out the hole for the pedal cluster.

Installation
Coat the new cable with multi-purpose grease.
Find the front end of the cable guide tube by reaching into the hole for the brake and clutch pedal cluster. Grasp the tube with your fingers and insert the new cable into the tube.
After you ve started the cable into the tube, push it to the rear, through the tube. If you need to, lubricate the cable with multi-purpose grease as you push it into the tube.
The "sag", or bend, in the clutch cable guide tube is important - the friction it imposes on the cable minimizes clutch chatter. To alter the sag, install or remove washers between the holding bracket and the end of the cable tube.
Now adjust the clutch pedal freeplay.

92'isuzu pick-up, 2.3L.manual tran. the truck starts and it goes into all gears, but it hardly moves.I adjusted the clutch cable and it got better I always had to adjust the cable. now it bearly move on...


Yes it is time to install a new clutch kit(clutch disc,pressure plate ,throw out bearing and pilot bearing)also have the flywheel resurfaced.The disc has gotten too thin to be clamped by the pressure plate.Best if you replace everything at once with new parts,avoid rebuilt parts.Good luck!

My clutch feels loose and does not allow me to change the gears, is my clutch worn out ?


Not necessarily. A worn clutch usually does not prevent gearchanging, it causes the clutch to slip instead.

You have instead described a failed clutch actuation system. If your clutch is cable operated then it probably needs adjustment or a new cable (they can stretch/fray over time) or if it's hydraulically operated then there is probably a leak in either the master or slave cylinder. Note that your problem can occur independently of whether the clutch is nearly new or worn out. Another, rarer, possibility is a worn or bent clutch release arm: to repair this part requires a complete clutch strip down and so it would be entirely normal and best practice to replace the remaining clutch components at the same time unless they're known to be almost brand new.

Almost all clutch fitting centres offer free clutch adjustments in the hope of finding chargeable repairs. If they claim the car needs just a new clutch then ask them why and take the car elsewhere for a second (or even a third) opinion.

Clutch pedal is very heavy to push down


If the clutch in your car is hydralic there is no way to adjust that type of clutch. That you describe the clutch as being hard to push and that you have to have the clutch "right down on the floor to engage a gear" is an indication that the clutch is worn and needs to be replaced. If the clutch in your car is pushed by a cable, the cable might be adjustable and if that is the case you might get a few more months of use from the car, but the fix is still the same, you will need to get a new clutch put in your car.

The mechanic you went to was wrong, these cable have a lot of tension, sounds to me like you may need a new clutch installed as well as a new cable( they are self adjusting and chances are you wont be able to deadjust your old cable.)
