When the clutch pedal changes position, it usually indicates the need for a new clutch...but... You should be able to find a shop manual at your local library with the right info...make copies as they are usually only in the REFERENCE section....good luck:)

It is hydraulic. There is no adjustment, it self adjusts.

if the clutch is hydraulic operated, bleed the cluth if it is mechanical cluth, adjust the linkages

its a hydraulic clutch and needs no adjustment, if its loose it typically means its worn

You can't aprrently on a hyrdraulic clutch, which these have that adjust automatically.

Check your clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder for leaks,if no leaks,then you need a new clutch kit.

It is notadjustable, You either have a bad clutch slave cylinder, clutch master cylinder. The clutch and pressure plate may just be worn out.

There is no adjustment on that year. You either have a worn out clutch disc or a bad clutch slave cylinder. Could be a bad clutch master cylinder too.

Probably so. Look under your dash and follow the clutch pedal with your eyes if possible- with your hands if not. It is a safety feature to keep vehicle from starting in gear. I have heard of them being bypassed.

slightly to the left of the clutch pedal at the back of the foot well

It is to the left of the clutch pedal,under the plastic cover,behind the carpet.

Accelerator linkage binding or idle air control solonoid is bad. possible throttle position sensor (TPS) Or the clutch is slightly engaged at all times. You can adjust this, if it hasn't been adjusted already. To do this, pull on the clutch pedal towards you (instead of to the floor). Use some strength when pulling back. If it is able to adjust, it will click. I would try that before spending money.

fill the clutch resivoir pump the clutch pedal open the bleeder screw and tighten it back up and repeat until the air is out and just fluid comes out

if its a manual transmission its attached to the clutch pedal housing if its an automatic its the shifter

Behind the right front tire you will see where your clutch cable attaches to your clutch arm, holding on to the cable with a pliers, take an 11mm socket and wrench and turn the nut on the backside clockwise until your clutch is where you want it. Now if you have tighned up the nut all the way and it's still loose you need to take out the clutch pedal and check to see if the threads at the end are twisted, if so replace immediately, I had 1 snap off on me.

yes there is. it is located under neath the drivers instrument panel, at the top of the clutch pedal assembly. It has a 2 pin connector, one wire running to a ground, and the other wire running to the starter relay. the clutch pedal must be depressed to start the vehicle and allow the ignition to engage the starter.

if your problem is a sloppy pedal......... then you probably need to bleed the slave cylinder, not adjust the clutch cable. As you correctly point out, this is a cable, not hydraulic, system. The adjustment is on the top of the transmission, towards the front of the car, between the motor and the battery. IT is usually a big black "cable" leading into a 3" while plastic adjustment mechanism, before the actual cable itself exits and heads to the clutch release arm. In this case, you need 2 wrenches (13mm as I recall) and need to turn the white plastic bits until the clutch cable snugs up a bit.

The pushrod should have a plastic ring clip inserted in the eye hole on on the end of the rod. the rod should be pressed on to the pin on the pedal shank and you´re done.

Well if you took one off and instaling a new one and you finished installing it you would push and lift the clutch pedal 2 or 3 times to allow the adjuster mechanism to function

It might be your clutch slave cylinder, It is underneath your car and is only about twelve bucks for a new one.

I had the same problem in my 91 r/t. I found out my clutch and pressure plate were junk. But before you replace the clutch, there is an adjustment you can make under the dash on the clutch master cylinder. There is a lock nut that you loosen and turn the master cylinder shaft right or left. Its supposed to adjust your free travel on your clutch pedal. Try that first. ********************* Assuming your fluid levels are OK, another possibility is that your master cylinder is trashed. You can buy the seal kit to rebuild it yourself, or have a shop rebuild or replace it for you. When I had this problem, replacing both my master and slave cylinders solved the problem.atag

Pre 1997/9 models of Ford Vehicles were self-adjusting via the clutch-foot-pedal. The pedal engages a ratchet system called the QUADRANT & PAWL and is part of the pedal. The mechanism is very similar on older Ford models of: Escort, Fiesta, Sierra, Granada, Transit & others. Newer vehicles may have a Hydraulic Clutch from 1997/9 onwards, and these work differently from the cable & pully mechanism. Clutch-fluid can be bled to improve the ability to operate the clutch, however this is not necessarily a method of adjusting the clutch.If your reading this article because you have a broken clutch-pedal then please read on.If when pressing the foot-pedal it feels like cable is broken, or pedal is loose, ...This is symptomatic of failure of the QUADRANT & PAWL 'ratchet' mechanism due to wear of teeth on the ratchet.In some cases the pedal fails to pull the clutch out far enough to change gear, and may make a 'springing noise'. This is due to slippage on some worn ratchet-teeth, but the mechanism has not reached full failure. There are 2 ways to remedy the fault.1. Change the Quadrant & Pawl, using only genuine Ford parts. #Beware of inferior mouldings that are not up to standard e.g. too soft, and do not trust 'pattern-parts' on eBay etc.2. SHORTEN THE CABLE.Disconnect SPRING ON THE FOOT-PEDAL to release ratchet mechanism.Clamp cable slack (engine end).

If it is a manual transmission it should have a clutch safety switch not a neutral switch. Usually found at the upper end of the clutch pedal under dash area
