First of all
you never patch a clutch hose or brake hose.
ok what fluid are you loosing?
just find the leak and call your local auto parts store and get a hose and replace it. then bleed the system.
but remember ther always is a master and slave cyls in the system that can also leak.
good luck

Clutch drops to floor

You have a small resevoir under the hood, like the brake fluid resevoir. This holds brake fluid also for your clutch master cylinder. See that it has fluid in it. If empty, you have a leak. If full, have someone work the clutch pedal and watch from under the vehicle to see if the clutch slave cylinder is pushing the rod in and out. (Located on the passenger side transmission bellhousing)

Clutch pedal goes down , but does not seem to release far enough to change gears, im thinking it has something to do with the line that goes from pedal to ******, that part on ****** does not seem tig

i dont see what car you have, but most clutches are hydraulic these days. under the hood on the firewall there should be a small fluid cylinder called a clutch slave cylinder. it should be full of brake fluid. when it leaks, the pedal feels strange and it will not release the clutch. usually when the fluid leaks it it due to a failed slave cylinder on the transmission.

Clutch fluid leak

Well, it's something any everyday do it yourselfer would take on. ( What portion of the 99% are we?)
The important thing is to stop the leak. It is the reason you are grinding gears (cringe!), and could quickly lead to expensive damage. Clutch (or brake) fluid is a hydraulic fluid, which works under pressure. A leak lowers pressure and reduces the effectiveness of your clutch. So to avoid the cost of a new or rebuilt transmission, stop the leak!
You need a few tools, of course....honestly, let a mechanic review your work after you fix the leak, because likely the clutch system will need to be bled down at the transmission to restore it to full efficiency.

1991 cutlass supreme will not hold brake fluid. i think its leaking under the hood somewhere. what might it be?

If it's leaking under the hood it could be master cylinder or lines. If you're not sure, where leak is, I'd have a competent shop look at it, it's a safety issue and second guessing can be costly.

Hi my name is daniel, i have an 04 mazda rx8 with manual trans and the problem with my car is that when the car is ON the gears wont shift and when the car is OFF the gears do shift, what can the problem...

Manual transmission?

If so there is a problem with the clutch. If its hydraulic the slave or master cylinder may be leaking and the reservoir is probably empty. If its a cable it may be out of adjustment or broken.

Where do i locate the hole to check and fill the transmission fluid in a manual transmission for a 93 ford probe gt. v6

there is not transmission fluid in a manual transmission, only a pressure clutch that should have a canister located on the firewall under the hood. Not a big canister. Smaller than the brake fluid canister. And it takes brake fluid. If your clutch is working fine your fluid level is probably fine. Usually only have problems with them when the slave cyl. gets a leak. And if it were leaking your clutch would probably fail.

How do you add transmission fluid to a manual Mazda 6? No car manual. Trans light just came on and it started jumping.

The manual transmission cluch is powered by the power brake system and share fluid. Check your brake fluid level to see if it is low. If it is low, you have your culprit! Just add more fluid to the brakes and you should be fine. If you think you might have a leak, have it checked. Brake fluid is flamible and an overheated cluch could cause it to catch fire.

Will not go into gear(manual)

Pretty good chance it's the clutch but check the clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder for leaks (also line between). A drastic change often is caused by failure of either component...generally if clutch fails, it is a gradual process (similar to how a brake pad wears)
