94 and up came with an "auto clutch" and in 94 they were a problem! I don't know if Ford ever fixed this problem
On the 1996 Ranger the manual shows to lift the clutch pedal every 5,000 miles to adjust the hydraulic clutch , I don't know if yours is the same
The clutch has an automatic adjuster therefore there is not a provision for a manual adjustment.

I'm not a mechanic / technician but a 1996 Ford Ranger has a hydraulic clutch ( the clutch fluid reservoir is in the engine compartment on the drivers side , by the power distribution box ) so as far as I know there is no adjustment like there is on a cable operated clutch
Bring to a shop that has an ABS scanner to determine the problem
No the clutch is hydraulic.
The clutch reservoir on a 1996 Geo Tracker is located in the engine compartment, near the firewall. It stores clutch fluid which is pulled into the system as needed.
behind the clutch pedal.
