Where can I find a diagram for where to put clutch fluid?

You don't need a diagram. There should be a small resovoir close to the brake resovoir. Look for a black or white cap the says either use only DOT3 or DOT4 brake fluid. They usually only have 1 line running from it. Don't over fill it, if it is empty you will need to bleed the system. Aldo don't get brake fluid on your car's paint, it will ruin it.

Where is slave cylinder located on is300

i presume your asking about the clutch slave cylinder ,this will be located under the hood at the bulkhead end of engine compartment ,there will be a small fluid resovoir sitting on top of the actual hydraulic slave cylinder , the clutch fluid resorvoir is smaller , and usually not opaque, than the brake fluid resorvoir, which are usually next to each other , incidentally the brake also has a slave, or more usually known as the master , cylinder

First thing you need to do is bench bleed the new master master should have come with 2 plastic tubes and fittings.screw fittings into new master,fix tubes to fittings other end in to top of master where fluid goes.fill with fluid make sure the tubes are submergered in brake fluid for entire process.take a screwdriver and press plunger in rear of master.use short slow strokes to start you will see air bubbles in resovoir.slowly increase length of stoke watchin resovoir till no mome ready to install.Remove failed master,(loosen lines befofe removing mounting bolts)remove lines last.reinstall new master then remove bleeding tubes last install and tighten lines.Fill fluid replace lid,have a helper sit in car,loosen lines about half a turn.Have helper depress brake pedal slowly and hold down pedal untill lines tightened.when tight release pedal and repeat 5/6 times.fluid should come out of lines without any air when bled propperly.if failed master did not run out of fluid uyou should be finished.if pedal still soft/mushy will have to bleed a wheels also.use same proceedure but openening bleed screws not lines.may take many times to get rid of all air,you can see and hear the air exiting bleeders.keep an eye on fluid level while bleeding if u run out you are starting again

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.

How much fluid should be in return resovoir for radiator. is their a fill line

If there's no line fill it half way, needs room so that when radiator shoots coolant in there there's room, and when it need's it there's enough in there for the radiator, coolant is always going in and out from the resovoir as the radiator need's it to keep the engine at normal oper. temp.

Brake warning lights stay on when i press the foot brake .the brake lights work ok .

You may just need to fill the brake resorvoir with brake fluid, when you are NOT pressing the pedal the fluid in the resovoir is low and the light comes on.

When you DO press the brake pedal you are forcing brake fluid level to go higher and this tells the sensor in the resovoir that the resovoir is full.

Daihatsu Terios hydraulic breaks

Hi, buy a couple of pints of brake fluid, dot3 or 4, get a bleed pipe from your local car store, connect to each bleed nipple behind each wheel, with the nipple open press brake pedal down several times, do one at a time, as the fluid drops in the brake fluid resovoir keep topping it up so it does not run out, do this to all the 4 wheel starting with the one that is furthest away, you sould end up with a bottle of very grimey brake fluid, good luck.

I would be thinking master cyl . they give more trouble than slave cyl does
