Most likely, the clutch or the clutch pilot bearing is dragging. This is caused by clutch hydraulic leaks not letting the clutch fully disengage or the clutch pressure plate/disc/flywheel is warped. Crawl under the car, (engine off)have a friend push/release pedal, see if slave cylinder throw seems adequate and look for leaks. If throw is short, problem is in the clutch hydraulics; if throw is normal, problem is the clutch.

How does a clutch break work?

If a truck has a clutch brake it would only be used when coming to a complete stop. By pushing the clutch peddle completely to the floor you would apply the clutch brake. This stops the clutch disc from spinning making it easier to shift into 1st or reverse gear. Normal shifting while driving you would not need to or want to push the clutch peddle to the floor to activate the clutch brake.

What is a reverse clutch?

A reverse clutch setup is when the clutch assembly is normally in the "release" or "free" mode when at rest, as opposed to the usual "normally-engaged" arrangement. In other words, the spring is pushing to dis-engage the clutch and pedal pressure is required to connect the engine to the rest of the drive train. In a normal automotive clutch system, the driver has to push in the pedal to release the clutch, then let go of the pedal to engage it.

1995 escort clutch?

The 1995 Escort clutch has a single dry plate diaphragm spring type clutch. The clutch plate has a splined hub which allows it to slide along the splines on the input shaft.

During shifting when the clutch pedal is depressed, which transmits hydraulic pressure from the master cylinder to the release cylinder, pushing on the release lever so the throwout bearing pushes on the diaphragm spring fingers, disengaging the clutch.
