Clucth issue

Hey guys, I was driving my mustang today and noticed my clutch peddle felt easy to push in. New clutch was put in about 3k ago. No noise, doesn't slip at all, and engages just fine. And help? It just doesn't feel as if there's no pressure. It's just a stock setup as well.

Re: Clucth issue

Sometimes it feels soft other times it feels like it has more pressure.

Your asking for free advice and get pissy when you get sarcasm. Wow, you obviously haven't been in this hobby long or spent any time near a shop.

Its probably the cable but is hard to say. I would disconnect the cable and move the pedal through the motion a few times to make sure it isn't in the pedal. There's not a whole lot more it can be.

I would to inspect it and make sure its not in the pedal. The clutch is probably okay if it does not slip and engages correctly

Yeah and it only got 3k on it. Is there a way to tighten the cable or anything?

The factory cable does not have adjustment in it. it is semi self adjusting. Lift up on the pedal with your foot and if it clicks it had adjusted.

Yeah I've known about that. Maybe the cable has become worn or something. I'll have to look into it.

Cables wear, they will give you tough spots in the throw and an inconsistent pedal.

I would be betting money right now that's what it is. Are they hard to install?
