Clutch Linkage Adjustment

Alright, I know my clutch linkage is bad, i cant shift gears when the car is on because the clutch pedal wont go in far enough to engage the clutch to shift. My problem is this: The car is stuck at home and i dont feel like paying $100 to get it towed to the nearest shop to fix it unless i ABSOLUTELY have to. I cannot for the life of me find ANYTHING on the internet about how to adjust it or anything like that. If anyone knows how to adjust it or can tell me if I can even do it on my own that would be awesome. The sooner i get this problem solved the sooner i can stop driving my dad's ford ecoline work van, so please help ASAP to ease the pain of seeing my car sit in the garage unable to move... :( Thanks!

I kept finding both things, one said clutch cable, another said hydraulic, so i didnt know what to even look for, lol, thanks for letting me know which it was. I'm going to school for this stuff, so unfortunately my knowldege on the subject isnt as extensive as i wish it was. i can bleed brakes, i have done that a few times, is bleeding the clutch basically the same thing or is it different?

if you have no pressure in the clutch pedal then its most likely clutch fluid related.
first thing you should do is check the clutch fluid to make sure its not low or empty. the reservior is located right next to brake fluid reservior.
if the fluid is fine, then its prolly either your clutch slave or master cylinder. the slave cylinder is located on the front of teh front of the block, to the left of the front motor mount. make sure thats not leaking. thats only like an $80 part.

Ok, so i checked the fluid level and its low, not bone dry, but lower then it should be. I checked the manual AND the top of the cap and it says to use brake fluid to fill it up if the level is low... is that correct? do i really use brake fluid or is there a different type of fluid for clutches? I just need to drive the car to school in the morning tomorrow and then after school im gonna take it to a shop and have the system checked for a leak. Thanks alot for your help guys!
