I have a 2009 mitsubishi lancer 1.5L. It has leaked fluid from what looks like the slave cylinder, no pressure from the clutch therefore I cant change gears. Ive topped up the reserviour and pumped the clutch but still no pressure. Could you please confirm its the slave cylinder thats faulty before I place an order for a replacement one. Thanks

Thanks Saturntech9 for the response.
I'm a mechanical novice I'm afraid, I just know the clutch is not working (car is a manual(stick shift) by the way) I can't engage any of the gears. Hope that was helpful

I have just noticed that the brakes aint working. It was rock hard until I started the engine, it went really spongy as the engine started I also noticed that the engine revvs up when I pump the brakes. Any ideas as to what this could be? Thanks
