Clutch is engaging farther than normal

My clutch is engaging at the very top. Its bothering me. Does it just need to be adjusted or is my clutch going out?

Go out to your car, grab the clutch pedal with your hand and pull upwards towards you. You should hear a zip tie sounding noise. This is the stock mechanism taking up the slack in the cable. You also may need a new cable for a car that old. If you do get a new cable, do NOT get a parts store cable, only Ford or Max Motorsports (OEM manufacturer). MM actually sells a full kit with a new cable/quadrant/adjuster and might be doing a cyber Monday sale too.

Okay thank you. That helps a lot. Is the kit something i could install on my own or do you prefer a mechanic does it?

Max Motorsports should have all the installation stuff on their site. I don't know your level of comfort working on cars, but for your average backyard mechanic this is a 2 hour job or so. Not hard at all IMO but I work on jet engines for a living...
