Curious, I was filling up the other day and checking fluid levels, etc as I always do when filling up and I noticed something and REMEMBERED this time to post about it...

Its been a few years since my last manual tranny, and as I was looking for clutch fluid container, I could not locate it.

In the manual I looked and it appears that the hydraulic is a singular system and shared with the brakes for the clutch.

UNLESS, the clutch is a mechanical rather than hydraulic?

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

It's not much different than having the reservoirs separate. If the clutch system develops a leak, the brakes would still be unaffected, and vice-versa. One thing thats kind of nice, is that if either system develops a leak, when the fluid gets low, the parking brake light will come on. Most vehicles that have this type of warning system, only have it for the brakes. So if the clutch fluid was low you wouldn't have any warning.
