The 99 mustang I have has to be started in first to get going. Same with reverse. Once driving it seems I can shift okay but I'm not sure what the problem really is. The clutch cable has an inch of space where it goes into the dash from the engine bay even when the adjustment is fully maxed. I thought it might be a stretched cable because of the slack so I added some washers to the screws to take the slack out where it leads to the dash from the engine bay but then with all but a little of the slack out the pedal doesnt move mush and is really stiff after a couple inches of pushing down. I jacked the car up and the cable is connected to the "fork" or whatever its called on the 99 mustang clutch cable. Does anyone know if a stretched cable isnt fixed by taking the slack out or if its more likely a transmission issue? any resources ideas and suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
