Hi Martin, it sounds like you have a fluid leak. Open the bonnet and check the servo and connecting pipes down to your gear box for leaks.

Clutch pedal is soft and have to pump pedal for gear change

I see someone has already mentioned the Master Cylinder but you should also check the slave cylinder for leakage. They are usually mounted lower and are more prone to contamination.

3rd gear looses all power starts jumping

Check the clutch plate. It is worn out. Have it changed. As you are going to get the gear box opened, to change the clutch plate check the gears and see that they are not worn out. Also check the functioning of fuel pump before you open the gear box. Probably it is not pumping enough fuel when the power is required.

Theres a problem changing gears, its a soft very low biting clutch peddle, unable to change down from high ratio gears to low ratio gears, having to knock into nuetral pump the clutch to select gears...

This sounds like you may have a leak in the hydrulics of the clutch, the clutch slave is not disengaging the clutch all the way, this is the reason for the low bite pedal and hard to get gears, the most common problem is the fluid is low due to a leaking slave cylinder, i would look around the clutch components for a leak, hope this helps.

Having trouble changing gears to 1st and reverse have to pump clutch or turn vehicle off to switch gears

you need to have the clutch cable adjusted,,, if theres no adjustment or it has already been adjusted all the way out, then its time for a new one.

My car is stuck is stuck in idol it wont go in to gear it just grinds

I an assuming that since it grinds that this is a standard shift transmission. If so, your slave or master cylinder for your clutch has either failed or leaked out, or both. Try adding some brake fluid to your Clutch master cylinder and pump vigorously to purge any bubbles. If you can engage your transmission after this, you will need to have the hydraulic clutch system bled. Until that time you will need to pump several times between gear changes to use the vehicle.

Changing the fluids...

If you are talking about the fluid for the hydraulic clutch system it requires DOT 3 Brake fluid available at any gas staition or auto parts place. It Also should say on the cap of the clutch master. This requires two people to blead out air. Also may need to pump petal repeededly with bleeder closed to pump out air bubbles.
