  5. Clutch adjustment help

    V6 Tech
    Hey guys. I though it was a fuel related problem, but I've had 2 people tell me the clutch is slipping a little, and they're both pretty mechanical. Sometimes when I'm accelerating it the rate of acceleration slows even thought the motor is still throttling normally. The car has 70,000 miles...

    I bought my Mustang used and I'm very sure that the clutch is aftermarket due to the muscle increase in my left leg, lol. It is VERY stiff. The cable did finally snap suddenly one day, approximately six months to a year after I purchased the car. Because the Clutch Cable was VERY hard to come...
