Have you checked repair information? They offer on-line repair manuals that you can print specific sections.

If it is a hydraulic clutch, is there fluid in the reservoir? If it is a cable, did the cable break?

Is there a fuse for the cruise control on a 2002 f 750 (cat engine)

It's actually controlled through the ecm. Easiest thing to check is brake lights, make sure they are not stuck on. You didn't day if it is an auto or a manual. If it's manual you need to check clutch switch. Easiest way is to see if it will start without pressing the clutch pedal down. If it does then that's your problem. After those two things you need a laptop so you can look at the inputs going to the ecm to see what is causing it not to work.

On a 2000 Ford Focus my clutch is stuck in the pedal won't go down

The focus clutch system is hydraulic therefor, if no movement is possible at all it is most likely that there is something at the pedal causing this. Get down there with a good light and look if the pedal swivel pin did not come out or is partially out, a foreign object that got stuck in the top movement area of the pedal ect. If there is nothing found it can be the clutch master cylinder that need repair/ overhaul.

When i push my clutch pedal down the starter engages, what is the cause of this?


The clutch switch is designed to prevent vehicle from accidentally engage the starter unless the clutch pedal is depressed. (It is the equivalent to the Neutral Safety Switch for automatic transmissions.)

Pressing the clutch pedal by itself will NOT activate the starter unless the key is in the RUN position.

Check your ignition switch. it may be stuck on RUN.

I was bleeding my clutch now my clutch pedal stuck to the floor on a 1995 f 150

Most modern clutches are hydraulic. It may be that either the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder are stuck or some sort of restriction in the line. Or, it may be that the throwout bearing or pressure plate have some sort of issue (this requires pulling the tranny and looking at the clutch, pressure plate (plate that rides against the clutch with springs to engage the clutch) and throwout bearing (bearing on the arm that presses against the pressure plate to engage the clutch).

Of course, I am assuming you have checked for any outside restrictions that would not allow the pivot arm to retract (missing spring or piece of ice or debris stuck in there).

Just some ideas :)
