great! after you've refilled the clutch reservoir, make sure you wash
everything off with plenty of water and an old tooth brush - brake fluid
will cause a lot of rust if it's left on steel componentry.
lo the only he has to take it back today cause he forgot to tell them to
refill the cylinder reserve for the clutch thats a little low from leaking
i guess,if it keeps doing it i will take it back myself and tell them to
put a new one. but i didnt know if brake fluid changes when it hits the
ground or not. also how do you tell if a manual tranny is going up because
i checked the drain plug adn the nut to check the tranny fluid and that was
fine. i am just concerned because someone said manual tranny fluid is
orange and i wanted to make sure that was not leaking or going bad...
you need to determine exactly which component this stuff is coming from.
when the car has been standing & dripping, jack the front up so you
can see underneath. do /not/ move the car before you do this!!! look
upwards from the patch of fluid to identify which component has fluid on
it, then get back to us.
bottom line, there's only 2 types of oil and 2 types of "wet" fluids,
brake fluid & coolant. and gas of course. smell should differentiate
the first two [if you're using honda transmission fluid] and taste
should differentiate the last two if they are water soluble. you /need/
to do these tests for us to help you.
