    What is the milage on your vehicle? have you checked the fluid level in the clutch resevoir? three things could be going on. low clutch, low fluid in resevoir or air in the system. you might have to bleed the slave cylinder if you have air in the system.

If you are lucky the clutch may just need new fluid and a good bleed (Hydraulic clutch if you did not know), after that, the seals in the master cylinder may be shott, (look for 'wet' around m/c dust cover), failing these things it may be a new clutch im afraid.

How come my 91 mr2 turbo losses clutch pressure after sitting in fifth gear on the freeway for an hour or more, then works again after being pumped several times. never fails otherwise?

Hi, you just see if the pistons in the cylinders that actuate the clutch are very old... If so they cant build up that ahigh a pressure to move the clutch. They ll lose compression. Also chceck for the fluid loses in the hydraulic circuits. Get the clutch assembly inspected.

Cant get it into gear

I presume you can get gear with engine not running. If it went all at once pop the bonnet, look down the nearside where the clutch cable attaches to release arm and push arm in direction of cable end and try again
