    by a neighborhood mechanic - the clutch engages about 1" from the floor -
    very difficult to shift; Asked if it could be adjusted to 1/2 pedal travel -
    he said he shortened the clutch fork - would get better (ha) - Any
    suggestions on how to adjust the "self-adjusting" (according to the mx
    manual)clutch? I'll do it myself rather than asking the mechanic
    AGAIN - - -thanks

    This is a classic symptom of the hydraulic master/slave assembly going out.
    It's around $100 from the dealer and not very difficult to change. As far
    as I'm aware, the Saturn clutch has no manual adjustment capability.

    Same happened to mine a couple of years ago. It's usually a sign that there
    is a very small seep somewhere in the hydraulics- slowly loosing some fluid.
    It's classified as a 1 piece, non-repairable system. As mentioned, you
    replace the entire 1 piece unit. Requires a bit of disassembly to get at the
    tubes, but it's an OK DIY replacement. There are no adjustments. Just
    install it and go. The longer you wait, the more likely you will get stuck
    somewhere when you won't be able to release the clutch at all.
