Re: cant get my car in first gear
The resevoir is normally located on the fire wall near the master cylinder. If you can't see it there, try looking under the vehicle where the line goes into the transmission or and follow it up to the engine compartment. the resevoir is not that big .

Under the hood by the brake fluid reservoir there should be another small reservoir that has a cap on it, this is called a slave-cylinder. If it is dry on fluid it will not release the clutch when you press on the clutch pedal and makes it very hard to get out of gear, especially if you are sitting on a hill. Make sure it is full of fluid( uses brake fluid). If this don't work rock the truck back and forth to take pressure off of transmission while trying to take out of gear.( may need a helper for this) If that doesn't do it you may have an internal problem with the synchronization inside the transmission.
open your hood. check if the power steering liquird reservoir is not full. if yes, trace the hose attached to the reservoir and check if there are leaks in the hose. if you cant find the leak, go to your nearest mechanic and inform him that you have a leaking power steering.
regarding your problem on gears, change your transmission oil and check if this resolves your problem. if not, find a reliable transmission mechanic to give you a details diagnostic of your problem. the common cause of this "gears issue" are transmission oil and synchronizer. only experienced transmission mechanics should replace this part.
Does that have a hydraulic clutch pedal or is it mechanical.If you don't know if you pump the clutch pedal about 10 times and you feel it getting harder and you can then put it into gear its hydraulic.Check under the hood on the drives side by the brake reservoir and you should see a little like see through little reservoir with a black cap or rubber cap..Pop that of and see if that is full.If its not than you have a leak in the hose that goes down to the slave cylinder or the slave cylinder is bad..You can look in front of the trans at the bottom as maybe see the leak if one..You can put some brake fluid in that little reservoir.Fill it up the pump your clutch pedal a few times to see if that helps putting into gear while car is running.If all that checks out.Your more than likely going to ned a clutch installed...
