Where is the reservoir for clutch

I have no personal interest or association with any product that I may suggest.

Your brake fluid reservoir supplies your clutch. The reservoir has 3 chambers in it -- one for front brakes, one for rear brakes, and the firewall side is the clutch chamber. Often you can still see fluid in the tank and not have any in the clutch chamber.

Clutch pedal goes to floor and will not come up on its own as normal. Clutch does not engage. Cannot shift gears. Happened suddenly with no leading indicators noticed, except a possible change in sounds...

check the fluid level of the clutch resovoir, try bleeding the system out and look for visable leaks.the line you need to look for should go into the side of the transmission, and lead up to a small round resovoir.

I have a 1993 Mazda 626 LX five speed, and my clutch pedal will not go back up. I have pumped it like for 10 minutes, and I can not get into gear. Please help.

Have you checked the clutch master cylinder for fluid? First place I would look. If you don't know what it looks like, it will be next to the fire wall drivers side- looks like a brake master cylinder, but smaller. Just use plain brake fluid in it.

Mazda 626 turbo 1990 power steering cuts out intermittently. Any suggestions? How do you flush and renew power steering fluid?

is your pump belt slipping?  To change the oil you need to remove a hose, drain the fluid and replenish.  However, I have a feeling that you need anew pump or your rack and pinion is binding.  And these are items that need replacement.
