Question about 1996 Volkswagen Passat
My clutch pedal starting losing pressure recently, and now it seems like I have to pump it to get pressure built back up just to shift gears. I got under the engine while having someone press the pedal and you can hear it trying to slurp up fluid. But there isn't any place to refill the fluid. How and what do I do?
The clutch uses the brake fluid to work; check the brake fluid level.

the noise is the chain tensioner in the cylinder head between the two camshafts. it is a job for a proffesional shop. the 1.8t passats had an oiling problem and were fixed with a larger oil filter. some times you have to remove the oilpan and replace the oil pickup tube.

Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.
If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.
If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.

Check fluid levels first and also check where the shifter comes through the floor and attaches to the rod going to the tranny, make sure that pivot point is not rusted. There's a plastic to metal bushing underneath on the shifter points. If it's rusted, it makes it really hard to shift. If both check out fine, only then look at possible internal issue. (PS - some clicking is normal.)
