i think the clutch pedal should be the same as a 94 escort where it would be around 2.5 inches wide and 2 inches tall
You should not attempt to replace the clutch yourself unless you have considerable mechanical skills. In this case, the problem is most likely that the spring holding the clutch pedal in place is broken.
if its hydraulic there could be air in your line. bleed your clutch and refill.
A major indicator would be when you push the clutch in, you can't shift your transmission. Another one would be when you push the clutch pedal, it just goes straight to the floor with no resistance, or it doesn't push in at all.
I'm not a mechanic / technician but I would say ( no ) It is a hydraulic clutch on a 1998 Ford Escort The BRAKE FLUID RESERVOIR is also the CLUTCH FLUID RESERVOIR
It sounds like the clutch master cylinder or slave cylinder has gone bad.These are not that expensive to replace.
That would be a standard transmission.
obviously you have a clutch line or slave cylinder leak.
I had this problem. For me the pressure plate was sticking and broke the linkage. Take it to the dealer for replacement.
The clutch Throw Out Bearing is going bad.
Clutch slave cylinder is leaking fluid or the connector rod or cable from the clutch pedal is disconnected or broken. Depends on the make and model of the vehicle to know the exact setup of your clutch.
