Re: clutch help

i personally like to change my manual trans fluid every year or two, its very easy, very cheap. You just need a little fluid pump to push it back in the trans OR take the shifter off and pour it in.

Buy mercon/dextron III ford trans fluid (check to make SURE you buy the right fluid in your car's manual) and then pour it in, it takes 3 quarts i think or a touch under.

take the drain plug and fill plug out and the fluid will drain, these are on the same side, cant remember which, they are easy to see. Put fluid in until it comes out of the fill plug, should be what should be put in it as this comes out then your done. The car being level is probably a good thing as well.

if your clutch petal is low to the floor and not very high this may be your problem, your not pushing it in far enough so its hard to shift since its not fully in neutral.

you can get under the dash push the clutch in with one hand and hold the clutch quadrant (located above the gas petal, half circle shaped with a little gear on the back of it. Ease the clutch out while you hold pressure aginst the quadrent tring to turn, you cant keep it from turning but you make the clutch thing its loose (this makes the cable have slack in it) so it will self adjust and you will hear a click very easy to hear. Click it a couple times you want a clutch petal thats firm at the top but you have a half inch of travel before the clutch starts to slip.

Go drive the car get up to 55mph and hold the gas constant push in on the clutch and you should be able to push it in at least half an inch (but not much more than this) and the rpms will jump up. This is the sweet spot. See if this helps you.
