clutch return spring prob. popped off look under car at clutch rod and see if there is a spring there shouldn't take much to fix at all
IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR HAVING CLUTCH QUADRANT PROBLEMS. LIKE MENTIONED ABOVE IT COULD BE THE SPRING ON THE QUADRANT OR THE TEETH ON THE QUADRANT HAVE BEEN STRIPPED. EASY FIX EITHER WAY. FIRST FOLLOW THE CLUTCH PEDAL ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP AND YOU WILL SEE THAT THE PEDAL IS CONNECTED TO A ROD. NEXT TO THE ROD YOU WILL SEE A LARGE QUADRANT WHICH MOVES BACK AND FORTH WHEN THE PEDAL IS PUSHED.
For the brake it's pretty obvious. You don't want the brake to stay on when you aren't braking, so you need the spring to push it back. For the clutch it's the same but in reverse. You want the clutch to stay on, except for when you're depressing the lever. The spring keeps the clutch on, until you use the lever to overcome the spring. Then when you release the lever the spring kicks in again, engaging the 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. The clutch and pressure plate are held in contact by spring pressure exerted by the diaphragm spring in the pressure plate. 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.
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.
diaphragam clutch is small in size as compare to spring clutch and it transmits more torque as diaphragm exerts more force as copare to springs...... therefore it is advantageous to use diaphragm clutch intead of spring clutch... more compact means of storing energy. thus compact design results in smaller clutch housing......... less affected by centrifugal force..can withstand higher rotational speeds... diaphragm acts as both clamping spring and release levers..therefore many extra parts like struts, eye bolts, levers etc can be eliminated....
