[DML] Re: Troubles with Delores 17076

I'm assuming you mean clutch hydraulic fluid since you mention DOT4.

You'll probably find that it's all trapped under your carpet. If it 
leaks at the clutch slave it hits the floor under the trans, but if 
the master leaks it leaks INSIDE the car and runs down the wall under 
the carpet. You probably have both.

Replace the master and slave, and the line if its still plastic. And 
wring out the carpet before it turns brown.

>>   2. The transmission fliud had begun been dripping out last 
summer. Nothing major and she just required a top up of Dot 4 from 
time to time. I put a shoe mat on the floor of the garage and the 
drips ended up there.

conditions here in Toronto Canada prevented any actual drives from 
late December till now. Went to get her moving last week and found 
that the clutch goes straight to the floor with no resistance. Opened 
the tranny fluid reservoir under the hood and it is empty... with 
nothing on the garage floor so I likely now have fluid trapped 
somewhere in the underbody.
