When you open the hood and you're looking directly in front like facing the driver's seat it will be on the right corner when you're facing the driver's seat. It looks like a break fluid reservoir only smaller and it's usually about a foot or so below from the top.
Good luck

Brakes very spongy after clutch have been changed

Since the reservoir is the same for both clutch and brakes, definitely it can be air in the lines. Have your brakes and clutch bleed for air or you can do it. Get yourself some fluid, transparent tubing, a clear glass jar and tools to blled both systems. Find yoursef a tutorial video online to understand better, but here is how it is done: Start from the most further away wheel. Get under the car and search for the brake bleeding nipple and connect one end of your tubing. Then place the other end inside the jar, to the bottom..
Open the nipple with the appropiate wrench and have someone pump the brake pedal four or five times and check for bubles in the line and jar.
Add fluid to the car container every four or five times. Do this unitl no more bubbles are seen inside the fubbing, and close the nipple.
Proceed to the next further away wheel and do the same. Keep going unitl all four wheels are completed, Then bleed the clutches slave cylinder at last in the same way. Always keep the fluid container filled with fluid, so no air can enter tue lines.
Good luck-

2008 hyundai accent clutch slipping, i think?

seems a bit early for clutch. how many k's? I would start by checking the intake tube for splits & security & airflow sensor. they will cause the engine to rev but no response (like a slipping clutch) so its manual right?

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.

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.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon and sometimes not all the time its hard to put it in gear! sometimes i have to press the clutch twice just to get it on gear.. sometime when its in gear its gets very...

usually when you have problems changing gears, there is a problem with the clutch not disengaging completely. If it is cable actuated, the cable just needs to be adjusted. If it is a hydraulically actuated clutch, I would first suspect a leaky slave cylinder as the culprit. it could also be the master cylinder. First check the fluid level on the master cylinder. Then try looking under the slave cylinder(it will be located somewhere around where the engine is bolted to the transmission), if you can find it, to see if there are signs of fluid leaking. You should do the same thing for the master cylinder. If the fluid is low, fill it up, then bleed the system and try it out for a while, you may have a slow leak that needs more time to really present its self. If you can really tell that one of the cylinders has been leaking, replace that cylinder it. In my experience it is more common for the slave cylinder to go bad but I have replaced my share of master cylinders too. Good luck!!!
