How do you adjust the clutch pedal on a 1991 Saturn SL1?
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:)
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.
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…
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…
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.
Why would a clutch pedal in a 1991 Dodge Stealth go to the floor and not return when the slave cylinder has been replaced and bled?
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…
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…
1991 240sx what type of fluid do you use for the clutch My pedal goes to the floor. car sitting a while. And where do I replenish it.?
Where is the neutral safety switch on a 1991 Mazda 626 manual transmission How difficult is it to replace?
Will a 1989 Toyota celica manual transmission fit in the same mountings as a 1991 Toyota celica gt convertible auto transmission and can I switch out the shifter too?
Yes the transmission will fit. But when converting over you will need a clutch pedal, brake pedal, clutch disc, pressure plate, throw out bearing, clutch fluid reservoir as well as the lines to route the fluid. You will also need the shifter cables as well as the shifter itself. Its not an easy task.
How do you adjust or change a clutch in a 1991 Mercury Tracer and how do you know if it needs to be repaired or replaced?
there is no such thing as clutch fluid. sorry you need a new clutch. There is indeed clutch fluid(same as brake fluid) in a classic Mini. The master cylinder is in the engine compartment directly above where the clutch pedal is located. I prefer to use Castrol brand available from Pep Boys in the USA. If the system is empty though you need to source the leak. Either from the master cylinder into the car…
ON my 94 you have to drive out the pin that holds the hydaulic fluid line to the master cylnider. I did this with a punch and a hammer. Then remove the pin holding the cylinder to the top of the clutch pedal (in the floor board) . Then simply remove the 2 1/2 inch nuts holding it to the firewall. Took me about 30 min.
I have a Ford Sierra (1991) 2.0i 5-door petrol hatchback. Ever since I bought this car, the clutch cable has snapped on an annual basis (four thus far!). I suspect there is something wrong with the pedal assembly, but can't trace it yet. Anyway, I have literally just fitted another clutch cable. The inner at the fatter end of the outer (round plastic "tube") passes through the bulkhead in the engine compartment and will hopefully…
pump the clutch pedal until it feels stiff. this may take a while. when it becomes stiff hold it to the floor. have a helper turn the bleeder screw on the slave cylinder. air bubbles and some fluid will come out of the bleeder screw. thighten the bleeder screw and repeat the sequence until there is no air coming from the bleeder.
What would cause your 1991 firebird to start when it wants too and no turnover or anything at other times?
i haVE A 92 camaro that does the same thing. if it's a 5sp, then it's probablly the safety switch in the clutch pedal. you have to push the clutch down to start the car, and the safety is not engaging. I don't know how to remove/replace this as of yet. if you know the answer, please, e-mail me at MrPenga@hotmail.com
