Brake fluid tends to attract humidity from the atmosphere it must be renewed every 2 years or 20000kms.
I would check the tyres and tyre pressure as well.

Manual transmition hard in reverse

manual transmissions have slave cylinder that requires DOT 3 brake fluid, there is usually a half dollar sized reservoir near the brake master cylinder. if your fluid is low you will have trouble getting it in gear and in time burn up your clutch. also consider having your trans fluid flushed and adding an additive, it's not expensive on a manual trans. :)

I have an 1987 toyota supra just did the breaks on and went to test them and moved the car and could stop but i got out of the car and there some red milky looking fluid on the ground that wasnt there...

Old brake fluid can be a dark brownish red color due to contaminates like rust in the system. But the fluid you speak of could be automatic trans fluid. Is your car an automatic? The power steering system in this car also takes automatic trans fluid. Check the fluid levels in the reservoirs. You may have either a auto trans leak or a power steering leak.

On 1991 stealth r/t 5 speed manual , yesterday shifted fine, have had issue with 2nd gear, ( a little hard to hit sometimes ) , But other than that shifted smoothly. Today all gears very hard to shift to,...

ok starting where you did... on the side of the transmission itself there will be a 1/2 inch socketed plug that can be undone to add gear oil there will be another on the bottom that can be used to drain the oil. for clutch master, standard brake fluid can be used and is recommended. the causes is most likely low fluid or worn out syncros in the tranny.. check the level of fluid in the clutch system and fill and bleed system at the slave cylinder. after that check fluid in the tranny. if all there is fine then i would recommend bringing it to a trans shop for diagnosis. if the syncros are going out then you will be looking to spend between 750 and 1500 to have it rebuilt or 2000+ for a new trans

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.

Manual Transmission stick jammed after BRAKE Light ON for a day. 2002 Kia Sportage ONLY drives in 4th gear. Mechanic says Brake Fluid in Kia Sportage Lubes and Cools Manual Transmission? Might have gone...

Need more info on what the trans is doing , or not doing. No chance that brake fluid cools or lubes your transmission. The only possible connection is that your clutch is hydraulic which would use brake fluid , but two totaly different systems. Does your clutch feel funny?

The trans fluid volume after filter/fluid change 2002 4 runner?

use the level you attained after putting that much fluid in to tell you how much more to add. Start the car, leave it in park with the emergency brake on as you do this. If you are halfway to the cold mark, add another 1/2 quart and check again. (the owner's manual should tell you how much it will hold.) Since trans fluid expands with heat do not overfill. After you get it to the cold mark, run it up the road for 20 minutes and then check it again. You should be at the top of the hot mark.
