    Okay so I have a chilton's manual...and my clutch has had practically no pressure for the past 2 days... the pedal gets stuck half way, I just wanted to know where the clutch fluid for the reservoir was because the manual doesn't do a good job at all describing it.


    If i don't need to take the car to a shop, I don't want to have to...but at this point I don't know if the clutch is blown or its just the fluid/pressure

    open the hood
    look on the drivers side near the firewall
    you will see two "cups"
    one will be closer to the fender (this is the one for the clutch)
    the other one is for the brakes

    how full should it be?

    any other things that could be simple causes of my clutch having like zero pressure...besides having to pull the tranny?

    obviously I'm a car tard, I just drive them...don't work on them

    I have a hydrolic clutch...this is on a Del Sol, all del sols have hydrolic clutches to my knowledge. in 1992 they stopped making cable clutches...n the Del Sol went into production in '94

    actually the del sol went into production in 92 (sold as a 93 model) <---i have a 93

    the 93 integra still has a cable clutch

    the cup should be filled to the top line

    causes would be:
    not enough fluid (add some and bleed the line)
    air in the lines (bleed the line)
    bad master cyl (replace it)
    bad slave cyl (replace it)

    look for excessive fluid around either of the cyl this is usually a good indication of if its bad or not
    sometimes there wont be any fluid and it will still be bad though

    have someone pump the pedal
    hold it down
    open the bleed valve
    close the bleed valve
    pump the pedal
    hold it down
    open the bleed valve
    close the bleed valve

    repeat this untill you get nothing but fluid coming from the line (no air at all)
