I have a 1997 honda accord 5speed I don't know what it is but it like my clutch is not releasing to make the car take off it acts like I never release my clutch when I have it just idles why

possible failure is the clutch cable or clutch master cylinder ( which ever you have )
if it is a cable the cable wears and strands of the cable jam in the case stopping the clutch pressure plate from engaging
if hydraulic the compensating post in the master cylinder becomes blocked and does not release the pressure to the clutch slave cylinder
The fix will be to replace which ever you have

Why does warning breaking fault light keep flashing up

Not an expert in this field but have you checked the brake fluid level in the power hydraulics near your Master cylinder power booster under the bonnet. If it is leaking you will notice that you are constantly topping it up . If this is the case then you need to get the braking system checked for leaks or a blown master cylinder before you find you can't stop one day in the future. Also check the vacuum tubing that goes to the master cylinder Booster for vacuum leaks.
If it was me I would get a brake expert to check your braking system as brakes are something that you really need to work when you find you need to stop in a hurry.

Rain water leaking into front of car.

check the grill area under the windscreen ,, you should be able to acess this with the bonnet open,, there are 2 drains to allow water to be drained ,,, these can get blocked by leaves and dirt causing water to build up and get into the car through the heater

chances are you just have water in one of the spark plug boots take off the spark plug wires one at a time and dry them out with a paper towel a spray can of electric contact cleaner will help to get rid of the water do not use wd-40.

Clutch stopped working

The clutch reservoir is on the bulkhead / firewall by the brake fluid reservoir under the bonnet / hood. Its likely to be low or out of fluid. If this is the case its more than likely that you have a leak from the master cylinder or slave cylinder. First have a look from the clutch pedal side for any signs of fluid around the firewall area. Then follow the pipe from the master cylinder down to the gearbox bellhousing. The slave cylinder is what it attaches to. Chances are there will be a leak from under the rubber boot where the rod exits. In some cases you will have to remove it from the bell housing to check for leak. You can usually leave the pipework on at this stage. Carefully prize of the dust cover and check for leaks. Be careful not to let it drip in your eyes. If its leaking remove completely and replace it or the seals. Refit and bleed the clutch after topping up reservoir.
Cheers John

Vacuum reservoir

It is located to the rear of the brake master cylinder under the hood (bonnet), to check and see if it leaks start the engine, put your foot on the brake pedal, turn the engine off, you should get at least three pumps on the pedal before it gets very hard to push, also listen for a vacuum leak, a noise like sucking air through pursed lips. OK got it?
