In the brake fluid reservoir. Both are the same. No clutch pedal, replace the slave or master. I would replace both.

Where is the clutch reservoir on a 2004 kia spectra

Sorry I don't know but if it is a hydraulic clutch and not a cable, the clutch master cylinder should be simple to locate as it is generally mounted on the engine compartment/passenger compartment firewall in approximate alignment with the clutch pedal.

Once the clutch master cylinder is located the reservoir won't be far from it. The traditional type of clutch reservoir has almost been superceded by a semi-sealed type. Sometimes the reservoir is remote and connected by a tube and often a fluid supply from the brake reservoir is used.

Details should be found in the vehicle handbook...

Hydraulic clutch problem

brake fluid goes in the reservoir on top of the clutch master cylinder. If there is no reservoir check for a line to the brake master cylinder reservoir as some cars use the brake master cylinder reservoir as a common unit . Check that that reservoir is full. Bleed out the slave cylinder to remove air in the system.

Where is the clutch fluid refill located on a 1998 toyota rav4. I found the brake fluid reservoir, but am not seeing a reservoir for clutch fluid. Any help

If you look at the drivers side of the brake fluid reservoir you should see a rubber hose that feeds to the clutch master cylinder. The clutch master cylinder is kept full via the brake fluid reservoir.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Were do clutch fluid go

Some of these use the same reservoir as the brake fluid and will have a hose from the clutch master to brake master.
some have there on fluid housing, open the hood and look at the driverside rear of the engine compartment , look at the brake master cylinder, you will see the brake fluid inside of it. now look to the right and left of it for a clutch reservoir if you do not see one then look for a hose leading of the master reservoir going to clutch master. if that is the case then as long as brake fluid is full then so is clutch.if there are two different reservoirs then check the small one for clutch. the clutch fluid does not really need filling unless there is a leak in the system.
What problem are you having with the clutch?

What does it mean when the clutch petal goes all the way to the floor in my 2003 suzuki aerio

Your clutch fluid reservoir may need brake fluid-yes, it uses brake fluid as a hydraulic fluid. Check reservoir on the firewall. It will sit beside the brake master cylinder. The reservoir sits atop the clutch master cylinder.
If it was dry, the clutch may need bleeding down at the slave cylinder on the transmission housing-where the clutch fork sticks out of the transaxle.. Open the bleed valve on the slave cylinder, and have someone slowly press clutch down. Keep bleeding until a steady stream of fluid comes out when clutch is pressed. Then close bleed valve, check clutch operation-pedal should have some pressure on it now.

Lose clutch in hot weather on 99 kia

Is your clutch fluid reservoir low? It's on the firewall, next to the brake master cylinder. If it's full, your clutch master cylinder or the clutch slave cylinder needs to be checked. One may have a weak seal that leaks internally..

The hose that goes to my resevoir cracked when the weather got really cold. I am almost certain air found its way into the system as the end result. All I need to know is where the bleeder is located on...

You have air in the clutch slave cylinder . As old as it is I suspect you now have a bad master cylinder.

Why? Because over-stroking the pedal when low on fluid tends to **** in all the dirt that accumulates in the bottom of the system and damages the hardened old seals.

The clutch slave cylinder is on top of the bell housing and it has a 7mm across it's flats, bleed nipple.

This is a two man job without a pressure bleeder. Have someone press clutch down and you open slave bleeder, close bleeder and lift up pedal slowly.

Repeat, topping of the fluid reservoir, until firm pedal.

The brake reservoir also supplies fluid to the clutch. If the fluid gets low or clutch leaks, the reservoir is so designed to still allow fluid for the brake system.
