All the above answers saying to use a DOT or other fluids are wrong.

Never use DOT-3 or DOT-4 based fluid in a system equipped for Magura's Blue Blood or Vitamol V10 mineral oil. Using DOT-3/DOT-4 fluids will likely cause seals to fail in your clutch or brake cylinders.

To answer your question: yes, I believe both Blue Blood and Vitamol V10 products are equivalent SAE10 weight mineral oil.

SOURCE: Clutch fluid resevoir

Clutch fluid and brake fluid are the same thing. It's usually only sold with the label "Brake Fluid", but it is used in the clutch system as well. In fact, a lot of vehicles only have the one reservoir for both brake and clutch systems. You should use DOT 4 or higher grade. Cheers.

SOURCE: Need fluid specs/types

any of the generic PS fluids will work, avail from Kragen, Autozone etc., brake fluids, use DOT 4, oil, 10-30W, any name brand will fill the bill, Valvoline is my favorite followed by Castrol brand.
Ebay motors is a good source for an owners manual

Just use a normal DOT-3 brake fluid! Just always check the color and level of the fluid!
If it is dirty( black ) u need to drain the whole system and put in a new DOT-3 brake fluid!

Transmission oil not flowing from masterr cylinder to slave cylinder when bleeding

of course it won't be
transmission oil is mineral oil and brake fluid is vegetable base oil
no connection between the two systems
if you have been putting transmission oil in the brake or clutch systems, the rubbers will be expanded and n blocking all the holes and hoses

Why won't the cutch engage or disengage. Everything is brand new but still nothing.

I don't know what type of vehicle you have but I would check there specs for what fluid goes in the clutch system. Most systems use brake fluid. I would think gear lube or oil is way to thick.

What kind of automatic transmission fluid do i need to use?

Your Scion TC requires Toyota type T-IV auto trans fluid that is a mineral oil based fluid, do not mix with different types of oils. If your fluid is burnt smelling or very dark in color be advised fresh fluid could be a bad thing as fresh detergents could wash away the last remnants of clutch linings.

2000 volvo s40 rear brakes locked up

It is possible to use the wrong brake fluid but if that was the case I would expect no brakes at all as the rubber cups in the master cylinder would have swollen to the point of seizing in the cylinder or be turned to mush and you will have fluid leaking every where. I suspect the problem lies in the park brake mechanism in that it is over adjusting or is rusted and not releasing correctly. If you still believe that the wrong fluid has been added ( most brands of brake fluid will mix ok---vegetable base oils--- but not mineral oil) then completely flush out the entire system using metholated spirits then several pints of new brake fluid

I have a 94 dodge 2500 v10 and i just replaced the clutch and all the hydraulic clutch system and my clutch wont disengage?

you need to bleed it just like brakes.fill the reservoir for clutch with brake fluid and open the bleed on slave cylinder and just let it drip dont touch the clutch pedal.keep eye on reservoir and add some when it goes down DONT RUN IT DRY! about 10 minutes of this should do. close bleeder screw and try it it should work. if not then recheck your installation

I was needing to know a way to flush the old contaminated hydraulic fluid out of a clutch system on a 1994 Ford Escort.

If the contaminated fluid is just old brake/clutch fluid which has too high a moisture content, then just bleed the clutch in the normal way but keep bleeding until what comes out is fresh clean fluid. Obviously, you need to keep a careful check on the fluid reservoir level as you do the job to ensure that you don't allow the level to drop low enough to pull air into the system.

If the clutch hydraulics have been contaminated with mineral oil though, then you must completely drain and strip the master cylinder and slave cylinder afterwards and replace all the seals after washing all internal components in fresh brake fluid. Flushing first just ensures that no contamination remains in the hoses to ruin the new seals when you refill the system.

Do I need to change brake fluid, clutch fluid and power steering fluid in my 2000 Honda ex 2Dr. coupe? It has 97,000 miles on it.

Unless you have a record of these fluids being changed in the past 18 months you should definitely change them. These fluids will degrade over time and need to be changed at appropriate intervals.
You should also flush the engine radiator and cooling system and replace with new coolant to the manufacturer's specs unless this has been done in the past 18 months.
Also ensure you change the engine oil and filter frequently (certainly more frequently than the manufacturer maximum interval specs which is based on optimum driving conditions which does not reflect reality.)

Frequent fluid changes = cheap preventative maintenance.

Brake fluid - every 2 years minimum
Clutch fluid - every 2 1/2 years minimum
PS fluid - every 3 years
Coolant flush and change - every 2 years
Engine oil - every 3500-4000 miles or 5 months minimum whichever is sooner
Oil filter - every second oil change.
