If you have a hydraulic clutch there is probably no adjustment. it might help to bleed the clutch, similar to bleeding brakes.is the clutch slipping? if not i wouldnt worry about. if it is slipping you might need a clutch job.

How to do a clutch adjustment


this really depends on what car you have, if it has a cable type clutch you need to make sure there is a little free-play in the pedal, tighten the cable just enough to be able to shift easily with the engine running without removing the free-play if the clutch slips loosen the cable. if it slips but you can't shift easily you need a new clutch.
If you have a hydraulic clutch and you can't shift bleed it, if it slips you need a new clutch. here again you need to have freeplay in the pedal for the master cylinder to work properly. hope this helps

The clutch pedal on Suzuki vitara two litre V6 1998 goes to about inch of floor before activation. Clutch does not slip just too much pedal travel. Is it possible to adjust it? ...


prev.gif next.gif Clutch ADJUSTMENTS 1997-98 Models CLUTCH PEDAL HEIGHT The clutch pedal height should not be a periodic adjustment but may be checked after components of the mechanical clutch system have been replaced. The proper clutch pedal height should be 0.2 in. (5mm) above the brake pedal height If adjustment is necessary, loosen the locknut and turn the adjusting bolt until the appropriate height is reached. Once set, keep the bolt from turning and tighten the locknut to secure the adjustment. CLUTCH PEDAL FREE-PLAY The clutch pedal free-play should be checked from time-to-time in order to assure proper clutch operation. The proper clutch free-play should be 0.6-1.1 in. (15-25mm). Fig. 1: Pedal free-play is adjusted at the joint nut (2), while keeping the outer cable nuts (3) tightened around the center cable thread portion 7924hg30.gif
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. If the free-play must be adjusted, turn the joint nut (2) located at the transmission end of the clutch cable in or out, as necessary to achieve the proper play.
  3. Once the correct pedal free-play is obtained, check the free-play on the release arm (c), it should be 0.02-0.06 in. (0.5-1.5mm).
1999-01 Models These vehicles are equipped with a hydraulic clutch system. No adjustment is necessary.

1991 mighty max, 5 speed manual ... when going up a hill, motor seems to race as if clutch is slipping, only symptom, no noise, no smell. once truck has been run, does not do this .... truck has 94,000...


if it has a cable for clutch you need to adjust it. if its hydralic then the master cylinder may be not bleeding off properly when cold or slave sticks when cold. you need to measure pedal free play that is how far pedal goes down before resistance is felt there needs to be 1/2 to 1 inch or so free play to make sure that the release bearing isnt riding on the pressure plate [would be the same as riding the clutch] the 1/2 inch higher than brake pedal probem can be adjusted on the pedal stop but shouldnt be the problem. of course the clutch could be just plain worn out to.

I HAVE AN ADJUSTABLE CLUTCH ON MY 91 MUSTANG AND WHEN I LET OUT THE CLUTCH THE CAR REVS HIGH AND TAKES A MINUTE TO GO DO YOU KNOW WHAT CAN BE CAUSING THIS?


Sounds to me like the clutch disc is shot. Make sure there is a little bit of play in the pedal at the top of travel. If you put your foot on the pedal and there isn't any play at the top then the clutch may not be engaging all the way (and you may have burned up the clutch from the slippage). Good Luck,...ZMANRACING663a3f6.jpg

Clutch bites high up on pedal movement


check clutch master cylinder rod adjustment and pedal height should be just higher than brake pedal. could try and bleed system also.
most hydraulic clutch systems have high take up points, adjust master cylinder rod, check for free play at top after adjusting if all that is O.K. then clutch plate may be nearly worn out but not slipping at this stage.

Clutch slipping


A clutch is usually adjusted from underneath the car if it's a mechanical clutch.

Your comment that there is very little play at the top indicates an improperly adjusted clutch. You should have about 1/2 - 3/4 inch of play before feeling the clutch in the pedal.
