    Wasn't sure where to put this, but I've got what seems to be a simple problem that I need help fixing on my 1985 Jimmy. When I push the clutch in (and when I release it), with the truck off or on, I've got this annoying squeak. Well, two squeaks, one in the cab, and the other underneath the truck. When I push down... squeak in the cab... when I release... another squeak in the cab with a scratchy squeak underneath.

    Is there something I can do to get rid of these squeaks?

    Also, I've noticed the the clutch reservoir in the engine compartment is low. What brand/ type of fluid do I need to be putting in there?

    I know these sound like simple questions, but I'm just not very mechanically inclined, and your help would be appreciated.

    Regular brake fluid in the reservoir... simple enough.

    I've already tried WD-40 on the linkage, but it didn't work.
