Dry clutch res. is generally caused by a leak either in the clutch master cyl or the slave unit on the bellhousing. check both for leaks and replace as needed. Master will show seepage between unit and firewall... slave will have fluid under rubber dust boot. Make sure youbleed it (just like brakes) after you replace either.

Where does the clutch fluid go in on a 1998 ford f-150 v6

If your clutch is hydraulic, look next to the brake reservior..If the Master cylinder goes dry, you need to bleed it can get an inexpensive m/c bleeding kit from aftermarket parts stores. Tons easier to do that way.

Is leaking clutch fluid-put new clutch reservior on-still leaks

Depending on where the leak is you may need to replace the clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder. Or a line, the reservior is rarly the cause of a leak. If it is leaking into the car or at the firewall the master cylinder is bad.

2004 Cavalier clutch cylinder mysteriously empty

the fluid is going somewhere of course but your clutch lines do not run into the transmission itself it runs to a slave cyclinder that should be on the side of your transmission most likely where you seen that bleeder valve at normally if you can put fluid in the master cyclinder and you can shift gears fine it is your slave cyclinder that is going out if this is so all you have to do is unbolt it from the side of the tranny and replace it. It should only have 2 bolts, 1 line, and a rubber grommet on one end with a rod in it if you take it off just put the new one on the same way just in reverse order. hope every thing goes well.

Manual transaxle fill level

There is a fill plug on the side of the trans, fill it to just below that plug hole. Make sure you use the correct fluid, consult the dealer for that info.

Shifter won't budge - 5speed manual/standard transmission

Before you do anything pop the little cent rag off the stick shift and lube up the assembly, and lube anything you can see that moves. my girlfriends cavy was doing this and also my cousins sunfire and it fixed it both times!!!!! try silicone lube, or maybe even wd40!! theres a white piece up under the console you can barley see lube that up !

2004 Chevy Cavalier Cruise Control Problem

here are two switches that are the usual causes of the cruise kicking out. they are both under the dash. One is the switch for the brake lamps (stop light switch). the other is for the clutch if you have a manual transmission.

if you follow the brake pedal up under the dash you'll find two switches at the top of the pedal. (it may be one switch but I think its two). the top one would be for the cruise control. if the switch is loose it will cause the cruise control to think you're stepping on the brake and that will disengage the cruise control

same with the clutch pedal if you have a manual transmission; if the switch is loose it will indicate you are pushing the clutch pedal in and cause the cruise to kick out

other than that you'll have to check all of the connectors. If it does engage then the fuses and actuators should be good and it would be a loose connector or switch that's kicking it out

also, i assume your speedometer works; if its not then that's your problem as the cruise won't engage under 30 mph
