Default clutch not shifting


I have a 2001 SC1 manual shift. I have been adding clutch fluid every 2-3 days. It has been hard to shift gears and I've been having to turn car off to get in 1st & reverse...now it wont go into any gear. Any suggestions to what may be the problem??

My guess: Find the leak and replace the master, slave or maybe both clutch hydraulic cylinders. You may be able to vigorously pump the pedal to get the clutch to engage enough times to drive it to a shop. Or do it yourself. This video will tell and show you a lot about what is involved. Search "Saturn 1991-1999 1.9L Clutch Hydraulic System" on YouTube. Especially the lack of a bleed valve to purge air from the line and slave cylinder on the stock slave. Hope this helps.

Adding fluid? Well I guess that means you have a leak. You'll to FIX it. Duct tape or bubble gum will not help at all. If you have no idea what your doing, find someone that does.

PS: clutches don't shift, they clutch.
