How do you adjust clutch on a 1992 ford capri?

Pre 1997/9 models of Ford Vehicles were self-adjusting via the clutch-foot-pedal. The pedal engages a ratchet system called the QUADRANT & PAWL and is part of the pedal. The mechanism is very similar on older Ford models of: Escort, Fiesta, Sierra, Granada, Transit & others. Newer vehicles may have a Hydraulic Clutch from 1997/9 onwards, and these work differently from the cable & pully mechanism. Clutch-fluid can be bled to improve the ability to operate the clutch, however this is not necessarily a method of adjusting the clutch.

If your reading this article because you have a broken clutch-pedal then please read on.

If when pressing the foot-pedal it feels like cable is broken, or pedal is loose, ...This is symptomatic of failure of the QUADRANT & PAWL 'ratchet' mechanism due to wear of teeth on the ratchet.

In some cases the pedal fails to pull the clutch out far enough to change gear, and may make a 'springing noise'. This is due to slippage on some worn ratchet-teeth, but the mechanism has not reached full failure. There are 2 ways to remedy the fault.

1. Change the Quadrant & Pawl, using only genuine Ford parts. #Beware of inferior mouldings that are not up to standard e.g. too soft, and do not trust 'pattern-parts' on eBay etc.

2. SHORTEN THE CABLE.

  • Disconnect SPRING ON THE FOOT-PEDAL to release ratchet mechanism.
  • Clamp cable slack (engine end).

How do you raise the top on a 1991 Mercury Capri convertible?

There is a release leaver on the drivers side of car by the back seat of the car. It is just inside the door. You should have two (2) release leavers the top is to fold the front set forward and the other is to open the back lid over the top. If it is a little stiff you may need to Pull up on it while you pull the release leaver(mine is).

AnswerThere's a release lever for the rear deck lid behind the drivers seat near the door opening. The lever is locked and needs a key, or in my case no-key, the lock removed, two Phillips screws. Once the deck lid is un-locked, open the lid and hold it upright and grab the center of the rag top and lift. Note: Both doors must be opened, or the windows get in the way. Two grab catches on the front of the top must be released by pressing in on the red releases. Need more info email me at jlossie@prodigy.net.

What causes a pungent rotten egg smell coming from the tailpipe of a 1977 Ford Capri II 2.8 V-6?

Emissions system not working properly, or a defective catalytic converter. A bad catilitic converter will cause that rotten egg smell THE Smell is from the Engine running 2 RICH - TO much fuel.U need 2 check 2 C if there are any codes like (O2 Sensor) EVEN a Vacume leak will cause a RICH condition & if the leak is bad enough the engine will idle rough. Plugged or damaged pcv valve; Damaged or faulty oxygen sensor or circuit; Clogged, damaged, defective or faulty catalytic converter. From my past experiences, owners of older cars tend to use higher octane in hopes of a better running engine. Higher octane than what the factory recommends can, also, cause a pungent rotten egg smell.

What is the best car Ford Motor produce is it Ford Capri?

It is the MERCURY Capri, produced by the Ford Motor Co. Capris are very reliable cars, but which is best is a matter of opinion. I have always preferred the Thunderbird, but any Ford vehicle with a 302 will last forever if you keep it tuned up properly.

How do you change the heater blower motor in a 1983 Ford Capri?

Uncouple all hoses under the hood, then remove all hoses from the unit to your blower outlets, uncouple heater controllers and electrical feed, there should be 4 set screws/bolts holding the unit into place looking up from inside the car under the dash, use a long reach socket bar and unbolt. Removal of part of dash/glove compartment can make it a lot easier. It is a matter of coaxing it out taking care not to damage any controllers or wires close by. Forgive me if i have missed anything out i am trying to recall how i went about it a few years ago. I removed the passenger seat as well so i could lie on my back in the car.

How do you put the top down on a 1991 Mercury Capri convertible?

Unhook the latches holding down your top Slightly lift back the top from where it was latched down While it is lifted slightly pull the back part up and out of where it is hooked to the back Fold the back flap with the window up Use your key to unlock the top (located behind the drivers door) Pull up the handle under where you put the key in Lift the hinged lid behind your back seats Lower the back flap with the window While you are pushing the entire top back and down you have to take hold of the number 2 metal bar(located right above your head when you are sitting) and pull it forward so the top will go all the way down and fit properly. Once the top is all the way in close the plastic cover. If the top doesn't fit in all the way than you did not pull the 2nd bar forward. Do not force the plastic top to go down all the way just put the top back in place and try again. It takes a couple of times to get good at it but don't worry the 1st time is the hardest.
