If it does this in all gears, I bet your clutch is shot. Other things that could cause problems are the Clutch master cylinder or clutch slave cylinder.

How do you adjust the clutch on a 1997 Ford F250 The pedal stays in after I take my foot off and it is hard to shift into reverse?

You can't adjust the clutch. It's a hydraulic system. The best thing to do would be to hire a good mechanic to replace the system. My guess would be that your slave cylinder is bad. That's inside the tranny, behind the clutch plate.

What is wrong when the clutch won't go into gear?

A clutch does not go into gear. A clutch engages, Normally if a clutch fails to engage it is because it is worn. with a worn out clutch you are able to start the car in gear without your foot on the clutch and the car wont move. Normally before this happens you will notice what is known as a slipping clutch. A slipping clutch means that the engine is turning faster than it should to keep the car moving while in gear. once this starts to happen it does not take long for the whole show to come to a stand still.
