Best Answer

If your clutch is connected by a cable it has to have a cable adjuster on or near the end (On my older mustang it was under the hood near the firewall). These are generally adjusted by loosening the lock nut(if equipped) then turning the adjusting nut one way or the other to achieve the proper freeplay. Generally, you want to end up with 1" of freeplay at the pedal; this allows for full clutch engagement at the top of the clutch pedal travel. Hydraulic clutches are generally non adjustable as long as the fluid is full and the slave & master cylinder are leak free.

How do you add clutch cylinder fluid to 1998 Ford mustang GT 4.6 liter v-8?

The clutch is a cable based. There is no fluid and there is no clutch cylinder. To adjust the clutch cable slip your foot under the clutch pedal and lift up. If you hear it click it adjusted itself. If not then it did not need to be adjusted or the clutch is worn out and there is no adjustment left. ========================================================== Just adding to the answer : Without the engine running put the transmission in 1st gear After lifting up on the clutch pedal press the pedal DOWN , SLOWLY Then if you hear a click noise the clutch has adjusted itself

How do you adjust clutch brake?

If your clutch is properly adjusted and your clutch brake doesn't engage, then your clutch brake is worn, and needs to be replaced. If you don't have 1.5 to 2 inches of free play in your clutch (this goes for both pull- and push-type), then you need to make that adjustment first and see if that rectifies the problem.
