Hello and thank you for using justanswer.
Sounds like your problem is that your clutch is not fully disengaging. Check the fluid level in the clutch reservoir. This is located on the firewall next to the brake master cylinder. If the fluid level is low, it should be topped off. Then pump the clutch pedal several times. This should get the clutch releasing again. If you still have problems, there may be air in the clutch hydraulic system. If this is the case you will have to bleed the system. The best way to do this is to connect a hand held vaccuum pump to the top of the clutch reservoir and apply a vacuum to the reservoir.
Thanks. Just to make sure. I take the reservoir cap off, top off the reservoir, put the cap back on, and then pump it up. What kind of fluid do I put in it? Is it just hydraulic fluid like I would use in the break system?
