    Clutch Fluid

    Is the clutch fluid in a 99 Z28 actually 3 DOT brake fluid? My M6 got progressively harder to shift and it finally got to the point where I couldn't get it into gear any more. I checked the clutch fluid resevoir and it was empty. I haven't looked it up in the owner's manual yet, but I think i read somewhere that the clutch fluid is actually brake fluid.

    More importantly, where did it all go? I keep it in the garage and there isn't anything on the floor.

    You can use brake fluid. And Dot 3 is the correct choice. Dot 4 will destroy the seals. Find that leak, fix the leak, fill with dot 3 brake fluid.

    I had clutch pedal woes before my build. When I started to work on the clutch area, the fluid was black as night.
