yes it will be on the drivers side on the firewall under the hood. it is round with a black lid should say clutch fluid on it.... if it is empty im affraid you have a leaky clutch line. you may be able to get a little bit out of it depending on how bad the leak is. also when you fill it up you will have to bleed the clutch much like you bleed brakes. depeding on your drive train (awd or not) there will be a bleeder valve on the transmission it will look just like the bleeder valve on a caliper it may have a small rubber cover on it

Thank you! Actually it was completely empty. I put DOT in it. I bled the line. And it seems like its not wanting to stay in a stream. Pulling to much air. No pressure. What do I do?

Find where the fluid is leaking from.


if it was empty it went somewhere . so replace the new part you just discovered


clutch line or slave cylinder
