A couple of days ago, that morning, the clutch in my car slowly stopped working, until eventually the pedal did absolutely nothing and it was extremely hard to shift. When I was looking at the pedal under that dashboard, I noticed some important looking fluid leaking out of the hole where the rod goes into the firewall from the pedal.
A guy at auto parts store said the hydraulic clutch system was probably bad.
When I got it into gear, it didn't feel like the clutch was slipping, so I hope that is it.
I'm going to (carefully) see if I can tear into it through this week and look at it.
If anyone has tips or warnings or comments, please let me know. I'd like to fix it myself, but am not extremely confident. Thanks.

Your car has a hydrolic clutch and has fluid which is part of how it operates. It makes it easier to shift then a straight clutch, which would be painfully hard to step onto. You need to get it sealed so it can be refilled and doesn't leak. Dont shift without using the clutch, you'll grind the gears and cause another problem. Get it fixed ASAP.

Its fairly simple to replace the hydraulic clutch master cylinder. 1. remoce the clevis pin that holds the pedal to the rod. 2. remove the hydrauic metal line located in the engine compartmant 3. remove the the two bolts that hold it to the fire wall. 4. then fill nad bleed the system of air.
