    It does have a tiny clutch master cylinder near the brake master cylinder under the hood.

    Are you having troubles? This transmission was nearly perfect for me and my manual LS that I drove for over 100,000 miles.

    The car is actually my son's car and it has 140k on it. The car is mint. He says he feels a clink when shifting so I figured the first thing to do is check the clutch fluid if possible. I don't feel any clink when I drive it but then again I drive a 99 f150 with 317000k on it!
    Thanks

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the clutch fluid. I'd be more concerned about the clutch itself if it has never been replaced (probably hasn't been).

    Also - one noted weak spot is the shifter linkage. It is prone to breakage. It's basically a pretty cheap pot-metal piece that fractures. I had this happen to me without warning. Luckily, this is one of the few parts you can purchase separately. Enjoy this fun to drive car!
