The clutch uses DOT 3 brake fluid and yes you can put it in yourself.

Trans acts like it's in nutreul and the speedometer will to zero

Why Is My Automatic Transmission Slipping? If you have an automatic transmission and it "slips" while you are driving it-that is, the car engine revs without the power going to the wheels-the most common cause (though not the only possible cause) is low transmission fluid. If the slipping is caused by low fluid, it will get worse as the transmission gets hotter.
Why Is My Manual Transmission Slipping? A standard ("manual") transmission uses fluid too, but leaks aren't a common issue; a standard transmission could lose all its fluid and never slip at all, though eventually it would lock up while driving down the road. If you have a standard transmission, and it's slipping-the engine revs but it doesn't transmit power to the wheels-the problem is usually in the clutch.
Further down in the article I discuss how to diagnose this problem.
Sounds Like Low Transmission Fluid to Me

My 2004 lexus rx330 makes beeping noise when i turn thr wheel, whats causing the beeping?

Without knowing exactly what the beeping noise is, if it is an electronic beep it could be a signal that your power steering fluid is low. When pressure (the steering wheel turning), is put on the system, if it is clogged or has low fluid it will strain the system and you get more of a squeal but Lexus could have a beeping to notify you The fluid is low. If you check the fluid and it is at the right level than your system needs a flush. It's about $80 at Jiffy Lube

Underneath my tahoe on driver side is a small leak,clear fluid what can it be ?

Maybe brake fluid. Under the hood on the drivers side is the brake fluid reservoir and the brake lines generally run from there, under the drivers side, to the rear brakes. The lid may be loose or a line may be leaking. Would help to have someone look under the vehicle while someone pushes the brake to see if fluid is dripping.

Got oil change done at Jiffy Lube. I got my transmission flushed & refilled last month. Now Jiffy Lube is saying I got a little transmission leak caused by wear & tear. How much you think it should...

unfortunately sometimes when you get the engine or transmission flushed it can cause an oil leak I don't know what it will cost but I would be getting other quotes & get the work done at the cheapest quote, it pays to shop around........hope this helps......cheers.

Hard to shift gears from shifter. Can go to transmission and shift easily.

loose or mis adjusted shifter cable to your transmission. usually, they break. stretched shifter cable? possible. manual transmission? did not specify. automatic? suggest cable problem,loose cable at some point,look with 2 people to see where the cables jumping during the shifting process. manual? suugest a bad or going bad slave cylinder on the side of the transmission,or low fluid to the clutch master the clutch pedal weak? or just goes to floor and will not come back up? this is sign of leaking clutch master cylinder,bad clutch master cylinder. or both. see brake fluid on ground under the car after you pump the clutch several times? either a bad clutch master cylinder,on the firewall,drivers side,just under the windsheild,or a bad slave cylinder on the side on the transmission under the car on the transmission. suggest that you look for fluid leakage. follow the trail of fluid to the source.

Repairing linkeage on 89 VX fox

If by fixing the clutch you mean replacing it ?
Replacing the clutch is relatively straightforward:
Parts needed:
Throwout bearing
Transmission clutch kit including pressure plate and driven plate
rear main seal for the engine
rear transmission mount rubber.
Shifter linkage rebuild kit ($20 bux from the parts place, google on web)
3 qts redline MTL transmission oil
17 mm hex wrench to drain and replace fluid (think Sears here)
Borrow of buy a clutch alignment tool (no not the rabbit style)
With vehicle on ground loosen the front wheel hub nuts (they are on VERY tight >150Lbs/ft torque)
Remove the battery ground connection after noting any radio securoty codes you may have.
Chock the wheels , jack up the front of the vehicle, secure on jackstands.
remove the drive shafts on both sides baggie the CVs so you don't contaminate them.
Mark and emove the starter wires, remove the starter.
If starter is old consider getting it rebuilt at this time.
remove the shifter linkages, replace all the worn plastic bits, bag and lay aside.
Support the engine with a floor jack. Loosen the front engine snubber mount (near the crankshaft pullry)
remove the transmsiion mount (looks like a sqaushed starred donut) under drivers feet (approximately) Remove the mount bracket
I suggest you renew the mount at this time
Remove the clutch cable from the clutch lever
remove the bolts holding the tranny to the engine
Lower the engine at the rear
SUPPORT the transmission and slide the unit off the pilot bushing. PUT NO PRESSURE on the transmission input shaft!!!
Lower tranny to ground and remove from under unit.
mark the pressure plate (clutch cover) as to orientation with a witness mark. Remove it and the clutch driven plate, don't breathe the dust. (BAD for humans) Note the driven plates spline orientation.
Clean the pilot bushing in the center with carb cleaner, regrease when dry with a smear of MOS2 greas (black and ugly type) Not too much just a thin smear.
Clean the transmission shaft with WD40 or Kerosene, dry with clean rag.
Remove and replace the throwout bearing, if you've been breaking clutch cables lately the pivot point on the side of the case where the thowout shaft lives is dirty. It needs to be cleaned w/cleaner and lubed with MOS2 grease.
Place the clutch plate in position, make sure you get the splines oriented correctly.
Clean the steel surface of the clutch pressure plate with a light hydrocarbon like lighter fluid, no grease here... I've used starting fluid here in a pinch, no smoking ;-)
Place the clutch cover (new unit? orient the same as the old one) over the plate. Use the tool to center the plate under the cover. If you mis-align the plate putting the unit back together will be a painful experience... so be careful, check your work. Tighten the plate into position, use a cross pattern on the bolts. Don't be sloppy here , a bolt coming loose would be bad $$$$$...
Add a small amount of grease onto the transmission input splines. This helps the clutch action, not a lot just a bit to make the shaft shiny.
If you're strong enough you can lift the transmission into position and slide it onto the plate splines. Otherwise use a floor jack to lift into position. Put the tranny in gear so that you can spin the axel adapter to move the shaft splines to get them to align.
Reverse this procedure to finish up.
I recommend driving the car after initially adjusting the pedal for 12mm or 1/2 free play. Drive the car and re-adjust as needed.
Get the transmission hot by driving for an hour.
Drain the fluid.
replace the bottom plug after it stops dripping
Add fluid to the side plug till the fluid runs out. replace the plug.
Enjoy the new clutch.
