If it is leaking fluid inside the car, It sounds like to me you have a leaking clutch master cyl, if so replace and bleed system.

Car will only engage into a gear when car is off. the clutch feels like it's doing nothing and won't shift when engines on.

If your car has a hydrolytic clutch it uses a fluid to transfere the pressure you apply to the pedal to operate the clutch mechanism between engine and the transmission. If you have a leak in the system your clutch system will loose its ability to operate. Often the leak is actually inside the chambers of the master cylinder ( pump you operate when pushing the pedal ) so it's internal so you may not actually see dripping fluid under the car. If the part that does the clutch movement ( called the slave cylinder ) is leaking you my see guild under the car or dripping from the area of the clutch. Check your clutch fluid resevor and see if it's low. If it is fill it with the recommended fluid and see if the function returns. If it does have the system checked for leaks before it leaves you stranded some place more problematic than your home.

Hard shifting 2002 toyota corolla manual transmission

sounds like you were running it without oil..that would explain why there was no oil leaking on the ground..the gearbox would now be worn out so it's best to get another trans,, could be a rebuilt or from a scrapped crashed vehicle..if the trans was running out of oil, best not try to repair it..

My 1995 Toyota Corolla power steering fluid is not leaking on the floor but i have to add every 2 weeks. What could be the reason

The seals in the rack can leak and the boots on the inner tie rod can hold quite a bit of fluid. If your not seeing any leak then this is what I would suspect. the boots are not air tight, so if you squeeze one flat and it has fluid in it the fluid will come out of the end.

Why would the engine engage when the clutch pedal is almost all the way out? The car is 1991 corolla and the clutch fluid reservoir has needed to be refilled several times.

Sounds like you are loosing fluid because of a leaking slave cylinder or slave master cylinder. Air is probably entering the system through the leak, causing a weak clutch pedal, or your clutch plate is worn and also needs replacing. Have them both inspected and replaced if necessary.

Started off with cluth sticking to floor.would have to pull clutch pedal back up with foot. truck would stick in gear. even with clutch fully depressed. seemed like spring had disconnected from clutch...

your clutch uses a hydraulic master and slave cylinder to disengage. It is likely that the slave has been leaking and the reservoir gone dry, thus allowing air into the system and reducing effectiveness. Check the clutch master cylinder reservoir (near the brake reservoir) fluid level. If low, also check the slave cylinder at the clutch for leakage. If leaking, replace the slave and bleed the system. If you need procedures or have more questions, please let us know.

Cluth has to be on floor to shift

your truck has a hydraulic clutch, which has a master cylinder next to the brake master cylinder. Check the fluid level. If it is low or empty, you have a leak in the master or slave cylinder (at the transmission).
Replace the leaking part and bleed the system to restore clutch pedal.

Hi! Shifting out of 1st gear is hard and sometimes sticks, have to almost stop to shift into second. I checked the linkage, fluid levels in both the tranny and clutch pedal. I have not checked the shift...

It sounds like a hydrallic clutch problem.If there's no external leak (clear fluid under the car or by your feet under the dash) then there could be an internal cylinder leak (when the plunger inside the cylinder no longer seals resulting in loss of hydrallic pressure).Fluid levels will be normal.This is common resulting in the shifter sticking in gear.

Hard shifting, want to check manual trans fluid?

Check first the status of the clutch fluid. If the fluid seemed to drop check for leaks in the side of the transmission and up in the pedal. If here is, the culprit is the clutch master. If there is non, have the clutch and the pressure plate checked out.

2003 toyota corolla low brake fluid

The fluid level will drop when the brake pads and or shoes wear thinner. A good way to check for a hydraulic fluid leak is Shut engine off step down on the brake pedal and hold it for 3 minutes. The pedal should not slowly drop. It will go down and hold.
