On the slave cylinder beside where the clutch line locks into the transmission. I f you are getting air or low on fluid the slave cylinder is going bad/leaking.

Good answer tuff4x4. these systems don't suddenly develop air in them or go low for no reason. Often, the Bearing Retainer on the input shaft of the trans gets galled and causes resistance to the throw-out bearing's movement. The driver presses the clutch harder and harder as time passes and can eventually weaken or break the firewall.

i bought the truck from a woman who's husband had passed away and all she did was try to start it weekly for about 3- 4 years. it only has 56,000 miles.
