Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'll describe it like when you're low on brake fluid... My clutch pedal wouldn't "catch" until
fully pressed down.. and when shifting gears i would have to force it into it.. up until I
couldn't force it it just wouldn't go into a gear.. please help.

Clutch hydraulics have a problem could be the clutch master or the slave cylinder. Is the clutch master full of fluid? Make sure you take out the rubber sealer tube before adding any fluid.
