Default Manual Transmission-"clutch problems"

I have a 1991 Toyota Camry, 4 cylinder, with a 5 speed transmission that
will not go into gear when car is started. I can put the car in 1st gear
when it is not running and when I turn the key while it is gear it will
move forward. The clutch resevoir was empty of fluid and I refilled it,
but it still does the same thing. I am assuming that the master cylinder
is bad (leaks), but and not sure. I do not see any obvious leaks. I am
capable of fixing the problem if I am sure of the problem. Any
suggestions?

If the clutch reservoir was empty you have a leaking slave or master
cylinder. You can't just refill it you have to blead the system just like
breaks if they go dry from no fluid. I'd suspect the slave cylinder or
damaged line to it.

These things have hydraulic clutches; a master cylinder mounted to the
firewall next to the brake booster and a slave cylinder mounted to the
tranny.

If it's leaking at the master, the inside floor of the car will be covered
with brake fluid.

If it's the slave, press the clutch in the driveway and look for a stain
about midships under tha car.

Master ~$65 at CarQuest, slave ~$40. Slave is easy, master is a little
more difficult due to placement and the rod that connects to the clutch.

If the reservior is empty, or near, you most likely have a leak; fill it
and watch it.
