[DML] Re: Troubles with Delores 17076

>   While the engine was exercised regularly over the winter... 
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 

Mike, I just had the same thing happen to me.  I was occasionally 
topping up the DOT 4 hydraulic fluid for the clutch, then one day the 
clutch pedal just went completely to the floor.  Turned out to be the 
clutch master cylinder.  ONE HUGE CAUTION:  The clutch fluid will have 
likely leaked onto the floor beneath the carpet & the carpet probably 
sucked up some of this.  Be sure to cover your driver's seat and any 
interior components with something plastic before pulling the carpet 
back to get at the master cylinder.  Like an idiot, I pulled my carpet 
back and let it rest over my seat and some of the fluid dripped onto my 
seat.  Needles to say, the fluid left a few discoloration splotches on 
the leather.  That stuff will take paint off of nearly anything.
