Sorry, but your clutch is self-adjusting. The symptoms you describe indicate that it's time for a replacement.

    I have a 97 Nissan sentra and the clutch works in all gears but hard to push to the floor. It has 2-3 inches of play at the top end of the pedals. Is there any adjustment to the pedal or tension on the clutch pedal to make it easier to push in. Thanks Greg

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.

90 nissan sentra 5spd manual wont go into any gear with or without running or clutch engaged. why?


The clutch isn't working correctly if you have to go through all that to get it into gear. You can check the shifter rails on top of the transmission, but that takes removal and dis assembly of the top cover on the transmission.

Why is my clutch so hard to push down on my 1996 nissan sentra?


Start with lubricating the clutch pedal pivot up under the dash. Then check the hydraulic components in the system. There is a flexible rubber hose that connects the clutch slave cylinder mounted on the transmission case to the metal tubing from the clutch master cylinder. The inside of the hose can deteriorate internally without leaking to the point where it will pinch off or restrict the fluid flow which causes a stiff pedal.

My 93 sentra 5 speed wont come out of 4th gear


If the shift linkage is not binding on the outside of the transaxle, then something inside like a shift fork has broken. The transaxle will have to be removed for repair. Such is the way with 20 year old cars where old things break, bad luck for you. It will be an expensive repair. An alternative is a used 5 speed from a salvager. That and a new clutch could have you going again in short order.

That cylinder is known as the clutch slave cylinder. It should push against the clutch fork every time the clutch pedal is depressed to allow gear changes. If it doesn't, suspect a faulty slave cylinder, or clutch master cylinder.

My dads 1999 Nissan Sentra GXE won't start


That sounds more like the starter solenoid. Was that changed along with the starter? If it wasn't, replace it.

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.
