Question about 1992 Mercury Topaz
Should be mounted on firewall under the hood pretty much in line with the clutch pedal. It has a single hose leading down to the trans /clutch slave cylinder.

if the fluid is good then the clutch is more than likely gone.make sure to turn the flywheel so you won't have a shutter if that is what you have to do

the clutch fluid being low means that there is a leak in the hydraulic system and that is why you cannot get the vehicle in gear. even if you refilled the resivour you still need to fix where the leak is coming from then manually bleed out any air in the system. air is compressable and liquid is not. if there is air in the system you are only compessing the air when you push the clutch down and it is not pushing the clutch. check the clutch master cylinder for leaks- its under the clutch fluid. also check the slave cylinder is bolted the the transmission.

Well, there is only one thing I can think of in your situation. Your pressure plates just simply are not creating enough pressure to allow the gears to engage. Either you have a defective clutch and it needs to be replaced, or possibly just needs a ton of adjustment. When you put it in 1st gear while engine is off, then start it and take off that works b/c there is enough pressure to keep the gears from starting to move when not already moving. However when they are already moving, there is just not enough pressure to stop them from turning, not even long enough to shift. Have you tried forcing it into 2,3, or 4 while driving without the clutch? As long as you achieve the correct RPM's your transmission should be able to do so.
