play in clutch pedal suddenly

'95 D90 NAS SF.
This just seems like it's no bueno. Have noticed a rather sudden onset of a lot more play in the clutch pedal when it's depressed; like not engaging the clutch as soon as before. And this most likely could be explained by . . .?
Thanks for any insight.

clutch slave in all likelyhood. also check your clutch fluid level first...

Where in the travel is it engaging? How fluid level?

Happened to me too- after checking all fluid levels and slave/master it ended up being simple. The spring on the pedal had reached then end of its useful life. New spring= happy clutch.

Cheers

Spring affects the "feel" of the pedal, ie how hard it feels to push clutch in......it does not affect "when" the clutch engages. But as mentioned it can make the clutch feel better.

If you feel the clutch is engaging at different point it could be the master or slave or fluid level as others have mentioned.

There is also an adjustment rod inside the clutch housing on the bulkhead. Had a double nut that adjusts when the pedal pushes on the master.

The master and slave can and do go bad too often. There are some companies that will "resleeve" them and this will make them last "forever". I had them resleaved.

It's important to make sure to fix this soon as it will wear your clutch prematurely.

Thanks guys for the points. I'm on it. Well, as soon as the temp falls below 90 degrees I'm on it. I'd have never made it as a professional mechanic for that reason alone.
Now to research the resleeving possibility . . ..
Thanks again!
