How to Adjust the Clutch in a Mitsubishi 3000GT

by Contributor

You can adjust the clutch of the Mitsubishi 3000GT yourself by changing the height of the pedal, or even adding fluid to the reservoir. However, if after doing those adjustments and the clutch doesn't work as you'd like, it might be an indication of other issues.

Step 1

Check the fluid in the reservoir first in the Mitsubishi 3000GT. This is located near the rear left of the engine bay. Fill that reservoir up, and pump the pedal to restore the hydraulic pressure in the lines. If the level of the fluid changes, you may have a leak in the reservoir, or even the master cylinder, the slave cylinder or the lines. Replace or repair any leaking parts.

Step 2

Turn the knob on the clutch pedal of the Mitsubishi 3000GT with a wrench if you feel that the pedal is too high or too low. Push or pull the pedal into the position you like, test the pedal then re-tighten the knob.

Step 3

Examine the bolt that holds the clutch to the chassis. Sometimes this bolt can get loose and needs to be re-tightened on the Mitsubishi 3000GT. Make sure you do it according to the specified tightness in the manual.

Look at the parts of the clutch, such as the disc ad pressure plate, for wear. If these are too worn, then it's time to replace them.
