my clutch is going to the floor before it engages; can it be adjusted? The Honda dealer says that is normal and nothing needs to be done

    The clutch should brake the drive between the engine and transmission. It needs a little free play at the pedal push rod to the piston in the clutch master cylinder. If there is no play the clutch will prematurely fail. The push rod length is adjustable. If it is adjusted the clutch switch may need to be adjusted as well to allow the cruise control to function correctly.
