The 1982 and 1983 Chevrolet S10 has a clutch cable as opposed to a hydraulic system. The clutch cable stretches slightly with age, leading to a low clutch pedal. The adjustment of the clutch cable on S10 pickups is done by a semi-automatic adjuster. The semi-automatic adjuster does the majority of the work, you only need to activate it. The process requires no tools to complete.

Step 1

Open the driver's-side door and adjust the seat to the full-back position.

Step 2

Grab the clutch pedal and pull it straight toward the driver's seat.

Step 3

Press and release the clutch pedal three to five times to complete the adjustment process.

Step 4

Start the S10 and test the feel of the clutch pedal. If problems still exist, there may be mechanical problems with the clutch or the linkages.
