Haven't been here in a while. But fate has me calling upon the wisdom and experience of the good folks of WF today.
I was driving down the busiest street in Montreal when suddenly my clutch failed completely. Within the span of two traffic-logged streets it went from suddenly tough to change gears to completely locked. Turns out I was completely out of clutch hydrolics fluid so basically pressing on the clutch pedal didn't disengage it anymore.
It took me forever to figure out where the reservoir is (in the brake fluid reservoir, in a separate basin that fills up when the reservoir is topped off) and where the slave cylinder is but I eventually was able to fill it back up, bleed it and drive away. I stopped every few minutes to check the level (I wanted to refill it before I need to bleed it again) but it seems to be holding steady. The leak must be a very small one.
Which brings me to my question: which part should I be checking for leaks? Where do these leaks typically form? Before I bled it, I noticed some wetness around the bottom of the trany where the clutch housing meets the transmission housing. But I don't really see how that could come from the clutch hydrolics. A slow leak is tolerable for now, but I want to fix it before winter.
Who here knows about clutches and can give me pointers on finding the defective piece? Anything "typical"?
