There is no clutch adjustment, it is all hydraulic. 1st thing to check is the clutch fluid which is tucked away under the driver side of the car near the firewall. On mine it was leaking fluid slowly and had gotten low. I went a while just putting fluid into it and would work fine for a while. One day I had no fluid and could not get it in gear and was late for work. I made the mistake of assuming that one type of hydraulic fluid is about the same as another and put in some transmission stop leak. Big mistake- this quickly swelled my cap rubber to where could not get the lid back on and then caused my master cylinder to totally fail. I replaced the master cyclinder, the slave cylinder seems to be inside the transmission so did not replace it, but blead as much fluid out as I could and replaced with real brake fluid. Then blead as much air out as I could, the only place to bleed I have found so far is near the master cylinder I need to be able to bleed it near the slave. Anyway since then I have been fighting it, in cold weather or wet weather will not release, when it warms up I am fine. I hope someone can shed some light on how to replace the slave cylinder and or if there is access to another location to bleed the air out.

It should be self adjusting. If its slipping then your clutch may be worn. Or if it has other symptoms, there could be a different problem. It says the clutch system is self adjusting in my manual.

The 97 usually has a clutch cable that is self-adjusting. This cable usually gets replaced when a new clutch is installed, as it is difficult to un-adjust it once it adjusts for clutch wear. Some enthusiasts fit their car with the old-style manual adjusting clutch cable, in a belief that is helps clutch feel and prolongs clutch life. The clutch cable itself is between the motor and the battery, a big black thing that hooks into the transmission's front clutch release lever. IF you have a friend push the clutch in and out, you can easily see it operate if you're looking under the hood.
