Exclamation Urgent transmission question!

I have a 94 2.5 5 speed that is my daily driver. This morning I got in to take it to school for the day, and it would NOT go into ANY gear, clutch to the floor. Tried pumping the clutch, no help. I finally jammed it into 2nd gear, drove it foreward a foot, and from then on to school it had no problems shifting. Then, after school It did the same thing. I noticed this time, however, that if I turned off the jeep, it would slide right into gear, even without the clutch, then I could start it and drive it, and did so. However, I tried to shift into second, still in the parking lot...and it would not go into gear. I had to shut it off, hold up traffic, put it in gear, start it, and drive it around to the back parking lot..at which point it started shifting. As I drove it, the shifting got easier gradually, and first gear seemed to be the last to get easy. Anyone have any ideas on what this could be? Any help would be awesome.
Thanks in advance.

That's what I was thinking...but that leads to a question...Where is it leaking from? I never see any on the driveway, and this problem just started recently.

Also, that's on automatic transmissions. The manual has a fill plug on the side of the transmission.

Okay. Is this an internal or an external slave cylinder, where would it would be if it is an external, and where would the clutch reservoir be?

Erm..I'll check again, but when I looked the only things there are the Brake master cylinder and reservoir, the power booster for brakes, windshield cleaning fluid, and coolant reservoir. There IS, down below, a sealed resevoir that says "do not remove" on the cap. Is this it? I know from the factory the 94 and 95's came with the entire clutch system as a sealed, filled unit that isn't meant to be tampered with.

Hmmm. Okay, I'll try to go and find it again, and to see if it's internal.

if its low theres usualy a leak running down the inside firewall and the cylinder needs replaced look above the clutch pedal,but for now you can add a little fluid it should get you by for awhile
