Check your fluid level in the pump... might be low.... if thats not it.... check top frame make sure nothing is bent or binding....
then check lines for leaks or any kinks......

The convertible top on my 2001 Mustang GT is slow to open and close. Have never added fluid, etc. What should I try before motor replacement?

The fluid resivor is in the motor,that is where I would check first. Check and see if there are any leaks on the lines and cylinders

Convertible top won't go back up, can you help?

IT is probably a fuse. Does it work at all? my mustang had a busted cylinder and only 1 side would go up. If it doesnt work at all then check your fuses. With no manual you will have to use a flashlight and shine on them and see if one is blown. IF they all look good then I would go buy a testlight for about $10 and manually check the fuses for power. It oculd be the motor, however that will cost you several hundred dollars and that is if you install it yourself.

Slow to raise top and now nothing...

The convertible top on your car has two hydraulic cylinders on either side (they are hidden behind the trim panel by the back seat) that move the top up and down. They are prone to leakage. By your description I would speculate that they are the problem.
