The clutch master cylindar is most likely leaking. It's literally a hydraulic piston attached to the clutch pedal. It is also possible that brake fluid is leaking from the brake master cylendar and running down the line to the clutch pedal, ending up inside.

How do you adjust a clutch on a 1989 Mazda b2200?

The 86-93 mazda b series have a hydraulic system.The only adjustment is on the back of the clutch pedal itself.This soley adjust the pedal height.Unless the clutch master is weak or the slave cylinder which engages the throw out bearing(aka release bearing) are worn and just not working properly.The clutch master is adjusted at the back inside the cab of the truck at the clutch pedal.This soley adjust the push rod going into the clutch master cylinder and this IS only done when you replace THIS part only.If your clutch master is leaking fluid at the resivour or your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking(common) look for fluid on the rubber boot and if leaking replace.Hope this helps I am guessing the slave cylinder maybe your problem if hard to engage pedal or hard to go in gear and not a clutch issue or throw out bearing(being noisy) while in neutral or in any gear for that matter.

How do you adjust clutches in a neon?

There is no adjustment. If you can depress the pedal and it doesn't engage or engages at the bottom of the travel, it's most likely due to low hydraulic clutch fluid, a leaking slave or master clutch cylinder, or all 3. Look first for low fluid in the clutch reservoir. If it's full, pull back the protective dust boot on the slave cylinder (On the transmission) and look for fluid leaks. If it's dry, you probably have a problem with the master cylinder. They quite often leak back inside the car where the clutch rod from the petal goes through the firewall into the master cylinder. If the clutch petal is at the top of it's travel, you're most likely due for a clutch replacement. The clutch on the Neon comes as a package deal with the clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel in one riveted-together unit.
