Only half clutch pedal wen running

You don't tell us what we're dealing with so will go with general principles:
- Manual clutch? Check linkages, adjust slack. Possible that clutch is worn, throwout bearing?
- Hydraulic clutch? Same thing only also check fluid level, master & slave cylinder function, fluid leaks.

I want to know how to tell if i need a new clutch as compared to a slave cylinder, car has only 99k, and i bought it as is, owner said it needs slave cylinder, how can i be sure????

Put the car in first and start it up. If the car want's to lurch forward then the clutch is working but not disengaging. Look toward the slave/master cylinders or even the pedal itself. Pontiac used aluminum clutch pedals and they bend over time, hitting the floor before giving you the full length of travel. This causes the clutch to not disengage. 50 bucks at

If the car doesn't lurch or the RPM's go up while in gear and clutch out, but the car doesn't go any faster then the clutch is slipping and needs to be replaced.

Good luck,

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1993 318IS BMW? When I try to start the car, even with the clutch all the way down, the car wants to go, so the clutch is not really having any effect.

Most likely it is a hydraulic clutch, hence not adjustable.
Most likely it needs a new clutch, it is 17 years old.
There could be an inspection access where an experienced BMW person could tell you if
your clutch plate surface is gone or if there is another failure.

My car wont move when in gear. i can go into 1,2,3,4 gear without using my clutch. cant go into 5th or reverse. now my clutch wont reject back. my friend did a burnout on my car before this happened

Can you pull the pedal back by hand? It's hard to tell what damage has been done without looking at the problem(s), but either the clutch hydraulic system has somehow locked in the 'release' position, or the clutch itself has disintegrated. Best not to let 'friends' abuse your car. Suggest taking the car to a respected service shop and prepare for a fairly large bill.

Clutch is slipping, hard to get into gear

Your clutch master cylinder may need to be replaced. This is where I would start as its cheaper than doing a clutch replacment. I would take the car to a tranny shop and have them do the free estimate. Make them tell you whats wrong and go from there...

Clutch slipping on 2004 350z roadster

This is a Hydrolic System ,thus there is no Adjustment for what you discribe, You will need a New Clutch Assemble. I Recomend replacing ALL Clutch Parts while Trans is out. Uncluding All the Parts Listed Reliece Bearing, Clutch Disc, Pressure plate,And Renew Slave Cylinder FLUID.

How can i tell what kind of clutch i have?

Your clutch is self adjusting hydraulic design, when the clutch plate gets really worn the adjustment availiable runs out and the trans gets hard to shift, a clutch plate is like a brake shoe, the friction material wears off over time.
