1993 MX6 clutch problem

Hey guys. So was reading a different thread about losing hydraulic pressure for my clutch is quite common.
I've been wondering is there a reservoir I can retro fit? Any tips? The car has only 212k KMs on it and in saveable Condition. I'd like a little more control on the fluid situation.

I'm afraid I really don't understand your question.

The slave cylinder is normally the first to go. I don't understand how retro-fitting a new reservoir would prevent that.

I wouldn't worry about it.

If I am understanding right, you want a dedicated reservoir for fluid for the clutch system and the brake system.

I believe you can do this but it requires swapping to a different brake booster. I feel like I saw it in one of the brake upgrade threads. For some reason the 929 upgrade brake master and 1st gen clutch slave comes to mind. If I get a chance I can dig more later today.

The big reality here is that the stock system functions pretty well for all applications. The only time I've seen anyone update the hydraulic system for our cars is after upgrading the hydraulic brake system and having to run a dedicated system for better braking.

I am starting to get a laundry list of stuff done to my car. Does that make it fast? No! Does that mean i spent too much money on a toy? Maybe. Do i have fun every time i jump in my car and drive? Hell yes.

Yeah essentially looking for a dedicated clutch reservoir, but yes I have researched the fix for a new slave which is the problem I'm having I've found it's leaking all over the inside of my firewall. So simple fix was just thinking maybe I could swap one in. We do have an ok pick a part in town here, so finding something like a similar year 929 brake booster, would I need the reservoir as well?

If it's leaking inside the firewall (near the driver's feet) than I think you need a new master cylinder, not a slave cylinder (which is down near the front of the engine and gearbox).
