Clutch and tranny fluid does not go in the same place whatever you do don't mix them as for where to fill the clutch fluid, believe it or not some of the clutch share a resovoir with the brakes but others have a smaller resovoir right next to the break master cylinder, but that's only if you have a hydraulic clutch some where actually cable so it wouldn't take hydraulic fluid at all.. I hope this helps

In general, the neutral safety switch prevents the engine from starting without disengaging the clutch

smoke when opening the filler is usually normal -smoke from exhaust is problem --and as to oil leak possible valve gasket --if oil level is normal dont add oil {over filling is bad for engine ]

Check the hoses are not closed up and causing a restriction also check the relief valve.

try posting VIN code 8th digit for V6,
so we can see exactly which one is there, then give right answer
or RTM?
there are no places to have any ECU tested, sorry, the tester is like $50,000 tool, ask CARDONE< how, or read their how we do it page,



i say leave it alone before you wreck it and are now out $500 for a rebuilt ECU. most bad onces are owners hotwiring them. or worse.
i can see you didnt scan it first and check fuses.


: 1. all instrument lights come on when I connect the power
good but only the CEL lamp matters here, and if dead fuse blown.

2. My speedometer reads 0 when I am moving and only registers when I let up off the pedal (what pedal?)(
how can you do that , with dead engine, pushing it? towing car?
why not say how? first. but is not important yet, below is.
speedo is a toy, speedos dont run engines. (yes help but not run)

3. the car/truck will not start, even after replacing the alternator and recharging the battery.
but cranks fast, why not say that. unless push started with ,m/t box.
2nd gear. IT CRANKS OR NOT? use word CRANKS
and means starter spins and it then in turns spins my cranks shaft seen with EYES on crank pulley, (details do matter)



my guess is you should have posted
VIN 8th digit.
then said fuses all ok. tests.
and engine cranks but does not start, help.
next is spark are all 6 ok>? does it have cop coils
1 or 2 dead, or all 6, BIG TIME DIFFERENT NEXT choices
called DIAGNOSIS and testing logic, (in our heads)
so next is scanning it,
using a scan tool, got one? if not ,you get to do this the long hard way, why do that? or worst spend a fortune in parts guessing
guessing has a bill, and is near $1000 in parts, is that fun?
i can do the pre 96 scan tool free with my scopes./


this line flummoxes me.
"The car stayed on even after I removed the key."
what in the world does that mean,
starter motor stuck one
engine stuck on
lighting of anything stuck one, (remove word car and put a correct word there, cars is not it. sorry

my guess engine will never run
and starter sticks on
or lighting sticks one of some kind.

tell more get more.

Go to the dealer and have them put a dye in the radiator. Run and drive vehicle. Take vehicle back to dealer they will use a UV light and determine the location of the leak. I have done this several times to multiple vehicle and it works all the time. The dye will glow.

band adjustment is covered in the workshop manual available from any parts shop or technical book store

check the heater lines which run behind the engine
the rubber hoses may need to be replaced or the heater core is starting to leak also check in the top of the engine to see if there is antifreeze up on to could be a radiator hose or thermastat gasket
