On the base of the foot pedal there is a tensioner for the cable. Try loosening or tightening that first. If you still have the manual from when you bought it, it is explained in deatil in there. It's a common issue - not to worry!

How do I fix the speed of stitching? When I press on the foot feed I get almost no speed from it.


unless it has been progressively getting slower, I did have a simular issue. My pedal was getting "stuck" at the 1/2 mark. (wasn't pressing all the way down). Drove me nuts. Took the machine apart, cleaned oiled, cleaned again blah blah blah...when the pedal was the last option took it apart and found a nut from a screw had gotten inside the pedal and stopping it from pressed down. There could be a burr, a nick or something it is catching on.

possibly air trapped in hydraulic clutch system causes pedal to go low and hard like brake pedal,
bleed from bleed nipple on firewall (bulkhead) under bonnet, left side of vehicle then under neath at slave cylinder.
when left for a while or turn vehicle off it comes good again due to air in line shifts position
these can be tricky to bleed also due to pedal doesnt come up when bleeding must pull up with foot or hand do it slowly and pump it for a while before opening bleeder nipple again.
hopefully you put the clutch fork in the right way again if you replaced the thrust bearing and the bearing itself depending on engine configuration.

Dodge neon gas pedal problem


Not sure what spring you're talking about with the CAI. The CAI is just pipes and hoses, there shouldn't be a spring. Have you driven another 2002 neon before? I know with some cars, the gas pedals are a lot stiffer than others. My gas pedal on my Focus is a lot stiffer and more sensitive than my friend's aveo or civic. The spring I think you're refering to is probably the one hooked up to the pedal itself which is easy. Just pull out the old spring and put in a new one.

I would check the battery. If you're using an old or under charged battery you will loose power for sure. Make sure you're also using a 12v deep cycle marine battery as this will ensure proper operation and a longer battery life.
