    I have a 91 Chevy S10 4 cylinder. My clutch felt great and shifted fine until a week ago. The clutch has no pressure now. With the engine off, it will go into each gear but not when running. The resevoir on the firewall was empty so I filled it with DOT 3 but I still have no clutch.
    Where do I go from here?:bow:

    Bleed the clutch.... but since you lost all your fluid, you have a leak you need to address too.

    Does the clutch only consist of the resevoir and the other piece on the firewall that the clutch rod goes in to or is there more? This truck sat for 3 years so I'm not sure there is a leak but I looked and see no evidence of fluid leaking between these 2 parts.

    It has the resevoir, which feeds the clutch master, then it goes to the line that goes down to the slave cylinder, which is where you bleed it, just like brakes.

    Bled it..Still nothing

    We bled it and got good pressure but it still will not go into gears. No leaks visable and transmission shifts great when engine not running. Could this be a problem with the pressure plate?
