Re: clutch line is leaking what could it be?
Hydraulic clutch i presume. easiest way to determine where it is leaking from is to examine the ground after it was been parked overnite.... the colour of the fluid you are adding is what you are looking for. i believe there are only three places it could leak... the master cyclinder for the clutch... the hose or the hydrualic cyclinder at the clutch itself.

Your clutch slave cylinder is leaking,it's on the side of transmission,has 2 bolts holding it on with a hydraulic line connected to it,may have signs of leakage,It's simple to fix,here's a link on how to repair,here's the part.
Yes all 92-95 civics have a hydraulic clutch system. it starts at the pedal. Pedal pulls a plunger in the clutch master cylinder which is found bolted through the firewall under the hood on the drivers side. The master cylinders resivoir is bolted to the drivers side strut tower and connected to the master cylinder with a rubber hose. A line from the master cylinder runs along the firewall tirades the passenger side wheel then turns to the front of the car and is connected with a fitting to a rubber hose. The rubber hose runs to your clutch slave cylinder. The slave pushes the clutch arm.
Your clutch pedal is staying on the floor because there is no back pressure to push it back up. You have air in your clutch system. First find out why (find leak or just top up clutch master cylinder with brake fluid if no leaks) then bleed your clutch. If your clutch line is rusted there is a coupler mid way in the line on the firewall. Will save you from removing the whole line maby. And there is no need to bench bleed the clutch master cylinder.
My guess is your slave cylinder is leaking. It right on the front of the transmission. Pull back the rubber boot over the end of the slave cyl. and check for fluid leaks. The bleed screw is on top of the slave cyl. Find/fix leak, fill resivoir, pump clutch 10 times then HOLD. Open bleeder screw, watch for fluid and air sputtering out or just air. CLOSE valve, release clutch. REPEAT until clutch works keeping resivoir topped up. You may also open bleeder screw and pump clutch to get fluid into the system before you do the bleed process. Keep in mind brake fluid eats paint and is not very nice on your skin or in your eyes so be carefull with it.
There may also be an off chance your pedal sticks because the clutch itself is badly broken but it's not really very likely.
Check the hydraulic fluid to your clutch master cylinder. If it's low you may have a warn clutch or a leak in the system, and most likely at the clutch slave cylinder. Try adding more fluid if it's low and bleeding the system, at worst your going to need to replace the clutch. Also it would not hurt to check your transmission fluid or better yet service it to replace the oil transmission fluid with new fluid. You'll find the fill and drain bolt at the side of the transmission. Good luck and keep me posted, thank you for using Fixya.
hi you have an obvius leak in the hydraulic system either the master cylinder seals have warn or the slave cylinder has warn seals you will have to check which it is first as either are ok for the average diy guy who knows how to hold a wrench so to speake and it will either take 2 people to blead them through or you will have to purchase a bleed system...( or as i used to do it a long bit of hose , glass jar half filled with fluid make sure hose is transparent so you can see the air bleading out) hope this helps
You need to fix the Leak in your hydraulic system to your clutch on your transmission. The reason that your transmission is not going in to gear right is that the fluid is to low to push the throw out bearing to disengage the clutch fully.
Once the fluid get's too low, you'll not be able to disengage the clutch to put it in to gear or change gear.
Check the fluid level to your hydraulic clutch reservoir and fill to the right level and fix the leak in the hydraulic lines.
Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, glad to help.
