Default 1996 1.8L Clutch gone?

What does it feel like when you're loosing your clutch on one of these? i just got the car and it seems like the clutch has a really late and small engagement point. Its only my second car so i have no idea what its like to go from a good clutch to a bad one. My other car only has 25k miles on it so ya.

I'm not positive, but I believe your 1.8 has a cable actuated clutch. Easy enough to adjust with a pair of wrenches.

If the clutch is really about gone, you should be able to get some slip by cruising in 5th gear and getting on and off the throttle.

When you give it some throttle, does the RPM's go up, but the car doesn't speed up?
