Your clutch slave cylinder could be bad and leaking,here's a picture of it,it's bolted to the side of transmission,has a bleeder screw on it for bleeding.Normally,your fluid shouldn't be low,here's how to replace.
then you need to find someone who knows how to bleed brakes, have him bleed it and tighten the bleeder when he is done. bleeders do not just loosen themselves however, generally they are more than a little tight. so you may want to pay someone to pull the wheel off and inspect the slave cylinder or caliper to make sure that no other leak exists.
keep you fluid level above 3/4 full- assuming you have a hydrolic clutch- unhook negitve battery cable remove rubber cap from bleeder screw on the release cylinder.place place a bleeder tube over the end of the bleeder screw.sumerge other end in a jar thats half full of hydrolic brake fluid.slowly pump the clutch pedal fully and let return slowly several times requires two people while pressing clutch to the floor lossen bleeder untill fluid comes out then close keep repeating this while keeping an eye on your bleeder tube jar as soon as you see no more bubbles close the bleeder screw and again make sure to keep an eye on resivor to remain 3/4 full or will get air in the line and have to start over. this part should be located on the tranny this is for hydrolic bleeding system refure to your owners manual for your type and location of your clutchrelease slave cylander.
bleeder valves are used to extract air from hydraulic systems, such as brake and clutch actuators. The bleeder nut is always located high on the slave cylinder. There is one on each wheel of your car. For disk brakes, it's near the top of the brake caliper. For drum barkes, it's behind the wheel hub.
For a clutch, it's on the top of the transmission at the slave cylinder. To bleed, one person must depress the padal while another person opens and then closes the bleeder. The person in the car pumps up and then holds the pedal down, then tells the other person to open and then close the bleeder. This must be done repeatedly for each line that might have air in it until no air comes out during the bleed cycle. If air got in at the master cylinder, start bleeding at the slave furthest from the master cylinder (right rear) and work your way to the closest (left front). Brake fluid is corrosive, so use a catch pan and clean up afterwards.
the master cylinder is the one you put the fliud in, it is the slave cylinder you bleed, this will be located on or near the bell housing of the gearbox.
to bleed you need a friend to pump the clutch and holed it down while you open the bleeder valve on the side of the slave cylinder to let the fluid come through, shut the bleeder screw and pump the clutch again, you may have to do this a few times b4 the fluid comes through, when you get a constant flow of fluid coming through shut the bleeder valve and pump the clutch once more, you should have clutch pressure now
There is a slave cylinder on the side of the transmission that has a bleeder screw in it. You'll need to pump the clutch pedal 4 or 5 times and hold the pedal down, while someone opens the bleeder valve, any air in the system will come out. Repeat this process until no air or air bubbles comes out of the bleeder screw.
The bleeder screw is located on the transmission slave cylinder housing. (Follow the hose from the clutch master cylinder) This is not a bolt, but a bleeder screw that has a fluid passage through the center to allow fluid to exit during bleeding.
An assistant needs to pump the clutch, then hold the pedal to the floor. Open bleed screw, tighten and repeat. Good luck
1. Fill master cylinder reservoir with DOT 3 brake fluid. Raise and support vehicle. Attach bleeder hose to bleeder screw on bleed line of slave cylinder. See Fig. 1 (attached in link) . Place other end of hose in glass container 1/2 full of brake fluid. Loosen bleeder screw while holding bleeder screw fitting.
2. Have an assistant depress clutch pedal to the floor. Tighten bleeder screw and release clutch pedal. Repeat bleeding procedure until fluid entering container is free of bubbles. DO NOT allow reservoir to run out of fluid during bleeding. Refill clutch master cylinder reservoir.
CAUTION: DO NOT allow bleed line to bend or flex when loosening bleeder screw.
