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.

Hi i drive a 03 ford transit when you press the clutch pedal it feels fine but you cant select gears only 5 gear when you try to get first gear its like the clutch is not being pressed


Your clutch disc may be worn out, when the disc wears completely down the pressure plate goes over center and that causes the clutch to slightly engage when the pedal is depressed and you grind gears, most clutches last about 75000 miles.

Hard to get my car in first or second gear,and reverse crunches,even when driving for a while it's really hard to change gears,what could be the problem ?


if it has a hydraulic clutch ,the problem is a failing clutch slave cylinder not holding pressure
the leak is probably from the slave cylinder
the indications are that the clutch pressure plate is not properly clearing the clutch plate and the drag is causing the problems

Hard to press clucth /hiace 2014 .while to engage hard to press clutch


check the clutch operation if it is hydraulic--press the pedal and see if the slave cylinder movers the throw out arm
It suggests a problem with the clutch master cylinder or a failed hose in the system that blocks off when the pressure is applied
hard to select the gears indicates that the pressure plate is not releasing
if it is a cable operation then replace the cable assembly as it is jamming up inside.

Definitely a hydraulic issue. Iknow you said they were both changed, but its usually the master & slave assembly that go faulty on the Freelander. Both parts come filled with fluid and pre-bled and only require fitting, no bleeding. Check with garage to make sure they did not split / bleed them.

I have a 89 toyota pickup 4 speed. When I'm stopped at a stop light, and let out on the clutch it seems like it has lost pressure. When I'm shifting down the road it shifts fine. I checked the fluid and it...


this sounds like the clutch slave is goin out, this unit is on the outside of the transmission. Possibly losing pressure!! Your transmission does not use transmission fluid, but instead gear oil. Have the following checked:
1. Clutch Slave (possibly worn)-this will cause soft or hard clutch pedal feel, slipping clutch, unintended clutch release, hard gear engagement, no/insufficient clutch movement.

*2. Clutch pedal Mounting Plate (possibly cracked)-this will cause improper gear engagement, hard gear engagement, soft pedal feel, insufficient clutch movement.

*this plate is located above the clutch pedal itself, apply pressure on the pedal with one hand while inspecting the plate for fatigue cracks(use a bright flashlight). This is very common on these models. This problem will eventually get worst and most mechanics never figure this out.

The setting for clutch are not proper hence clutch is either slipping too much or sticking too much to clutch plate causing the engine to overload for every single rev. Both will effect the efficiency of your engine's exerting power especially going up hills. Use the manufacturers specification for clutch force and adjestment of pressure plate.

Try this to find out the condition of your clutch system:
In first gear and push accelerator fully to drive upto 3500 revs and then suddenly move your foot away from accelerator. If you feels a sudden shock and your head tends to nag to windscreen with a force then clutch adjestments are not properly done (stifting force is more than recommended). Inversly clutch is not engaging fully.

Crossfire clutch feels like it sticking when switching gears what can i buy to make easier transition


"IF" you can pull the boot around the clutch release lever back enough. to shine a small flash light into the hole, Have someone shoot some P.B.Blaster(available at most hardware stores) "behind" the throw-out bearing and onto the splined shaft behind that. Avoid getting any spray on the clutch disk or the pressure plate work it back and forth. It might take a couple tries, but this should work.
