Re: Clutch fluid resevoir
Clutch fluid and brake fluid are the same thing. It's usually only sold with the label "Brake Fluid", but it is used in the clutch system as well. In fact, a lot of vehicles only have the one reservoir for both brake and clutch systems. You should use DOT 4 or higher grade. Cheers.

Late model cars use the brake m/cyl resevoir as asupply for the clutch system. Check for a line from theclutch m/cyl to a point in the brake m/cyl resevoir. If not follow the line back to the resevoir.
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)
it appears from my info, that the clutch master cylinder is connected by a tube to the brake master cylinder resevoir, and it gets it's fluid supply there. Fluid would therefore be added AT THE BRAKE RESEVOIR. fIND THE CLUTCH MASTER ON THE FIRE WALL AND VERIFY THIS THOUGH, AS i CAN'T SAY THAT i REMEMBER SEEING THIS IN PERSON. gOOD LUCK, AND GET BACK TO ME WITH ANY MORE QUESTIONS.(Sorry, don't type well, and accidently hit caps lock)
The clutch slave cylinder gets it fluid from the "Brake Master Cylinder" resevoir. If the fluid is out there is possibly another problem. Anyhow, there is a bleeder plug on the slave cylinder, make sure the brake resevoir is full and the lid is secured back on then have a friend work the clutch pedal in as you loosen the bleeder on the clutch slave cylinder. Only have the person working the clutch pedal release the clutch after you have retightened the bleeder. AND FOR GODS SAKE AND YOUR OWN DO NOT HAVE THE VEHICLE RUNNING WHEN PERFORMING THIS!!! Many heads have been crushed due to stupidity, not thinking and getting in a hurry.
Follow the clutch pedal to the master for the clutch,to the firewall,and locate the clutch master,if it does not have a reservoir,there will be a hose from the master,to the reservoir,just trace it down,it does not share the reservoir with the brake master cylinder.
There will be a little black resevoir to the right of the brake master cylinder. Its mounted to the firewall. When filling or topping off the fluid, make sure you remove the black rubber boot after the cap is removed. The resevoir itself will only hold a little fluid. Hope this helps you. Please leave response if you could. :)
