1989 Chevy Chevelle Two Wheel Drive Manual

Evening, I have a 89 chevy Chevelle. A few weaks ago we noticed the clutch was starting the slip and it was starting to get harder and harder to shift into gear, near the end I had to use both hands just to shift into Second, it wouldnt even shift into first. Now there is no pressure what so ever when you press on the clutch, and when you turn it on and try to shift it is as though the clutch isn't even working, I was wondering if that means there is a whole some wheres that is letting air in or if our clutch is completely gone.

If the clutch is hydraulic check to see if there is fluid coming out of the bell housing on the front of the transmission. There should be a plug in the bottom with the engine off put your finger in and feel around for fluid this fluid will be clear and smell like brake fluid. If fluid is present then your slave cylinder is broken and needs to be replaced. If no fluid is evident then you may have a broken master cylinder. A clutch is always engaged until you depress the clutch petal, when they are worn out then the car will go into gear but wont more when you let off the petal.
