I’m pretty sure it is…correct me if I’m wrong, I think the other type is called a mechanical clutch, and that they don’t really use them anymore in cars? And if it is a hydraulic clutch, how can I check the fluid? Shouldn’t it be a small plastic container about 1 inch in diameter located close to the back of the engine, usually near the brake fluid reservoir? Because unless I’m blind, I can’t seem to find it.
I’m pretty sure my clutch is about to go (losing torque, when shifting into 5th rpms go up but car doesnt go forward to match and sounds doggy etc), I’m just trying to eliminate possible cheaper solutions instead; i.e. the fluid, or master cylinder, maybe the cable needs tightening, or maybe theres even oil somehow leaking onto it causing it to slip. I know I’m reaching here, but clutch’s are expensive and of course, not covered under warranty. If you guys can help, that’d be great 🙂
sorry guys – its a 2006 kia spectra, with 44,600 miles on it. forgot to mention that >.<
