I had the same problem with my 83', i bought a new slave cylinder and everything, b ut decided just to bleed the old one out and that did the trick, now it works like a champ, it should be located on the bell housing u can get to it from under the hood
hope this helps

Your problem may well be that the throwout bearing, which is located inside the bell housing in between the engine and the transmission has become stuck.

    Replace clutch plate on 1992 mazda rx7

    You will have to drop the transmission. Inspect the pressure plate for excessive wear and stretched springs when you remove it. Replace your throwout bearing at the same time, they are usually worn out by the time you need a clutch.

    Clutch sticking will not go into first

    Ok it looks like there is no problem with the clutch or tranmission. You problem is that the clutch pedal is stiff and sticking to the floor. This sometimes happens when vehicles sit for extended periods of time. It might free up by working back and forth by hand. Have the vehicle off and the parking brake applied and push the clutch pedal up and down with your hand, It might stick to the floor and you may have to pull it off the floor a few times. You can also get some spray lubricant from your local canadian tire or auto parts store. open the hood and have someone move the clutch pedal up and down and spray the moving parts. It might take a few times to free up the stiff linkage but it will work :)

    My 1983 Jetta starts perfect but then only runs for 2 seconds and then dies as if I turned the key off. It had been sitting for a couple of years and I just replaced the fuel pump because the one on it...

    It could be a clogged fuel filter, I would change that and throw a bottle of STP Super Concentrated Fuel Injector Cleaner in your tank. When a vehicle sits for a long period of time the fuel inside of the tank and lines gets gummy and forms varnish deposits on and in parts. You want to make sure you clean all of that out so your car does not have any issues in the future.
