    Thanks for the help on my other post. I ended up having the transmission
    in stalled by an ASE certified mechanic. The transmission has 7000 miles
    on it, the clutch has 5000. The car has 90000.
    Now it is very very difficult to get into 3rd and 4th most of the time,
    sometimes into 1st or 2nd. Pumping the clutch pedal doesn't help. I have
    read that you can adjust the shifter cables, but my manual doesn't tell how
    and I can't find information on that on here.
    The mechanic says he thinks it's the clutch hydraulics and to replace the
    entire setup, does that sound like a possible fix? He said the fluid is
    black and rubber is rotting in it, but it looks pretty clean to me, except
    some junk is floating in it. Money is tight, any suggestions greatly
    appreciated! Thanks in advance.
