clutch does not engage until alll the way out. When driving, if you accelerate, the clutch will slip. I am on a very limited income at the moment, (ssi) but after the first of the year I will be able to send a donation, but right now I will have to go with the free answer, so thank you verymuch.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi there,

This clutch has no manual adjustment, if the hydraulic system is functioning correctly, the clutch will be due for replacement.

I have the same car and the same problem. I just replaced the clutch and it is still happening. There is no hydraulic system on this model and it seems like the cable just needs to be released more so it will engage earlier when you let out on the pedal. Should I just buy a new manually adjustable cable?
