Stiff Clutch After Long Drives
Alright so here is the situation, I bought this 1986 Ranger (4 cylinder 5 speed 2wd). I use the truck for my commutes from school to home which is about 100 miles one way and it's primarily all highway miles so I'm sitting in top gear for over an hour.
Now onto the problem: After cruising in 5th for this long when I go to downshift my clutch pedal feels pretty stiff, a lot more so than when I first start driving and I was wondering if this was normal for it to have that much pressure behind it or what could cause this?
On a side note, I've never had a ford anything and the clutch pedal throw seems extremely short and it only engages the last 20% of the throw and I wanted to know if this is normal as well. Thanks in advance for your help.
