    I got off work and I noticed that there was fluid dripn on my clutch pedal so so im sure the master cylinder is leaking i was driving home and im assuming the clutch went out because i was in 5th gear on the highway then all off a sudden it felt like neutral and the car wouldnt go no more a friend told me if it is the clutch change out the master cylinder and slave cylinder so i have all the parts just not sure ware to start

    Sounds like you need a clutch and hydraulics, IMO from what I read.

    sounds to me , like profG , as always , can read these better than me! I thought you just needed to fix the entire clutch system. ..........Seriously , if you fix one , fix 'em all. Otherwise you won't be able to shift your new clutch.
