Checking the clutch fluid in a hydraulic car can be a bit tiresome. While in most new models, things have become easier and you will easily be able to spot the clutch reservoir, in older models, this was not the case. Most old school cars come with hydraulic manual transmission, which means they have a clutch reservoir located right behind the brake reservoir. Moreover, if you have a manual transmission car, then you must learn how to check the clutch fluid for your car. You do not want to be stuck in the middle of nowhere in case your clutch fluid runs out.
Clutches in typical cars are mounted directly to the face of the engine's , as this already provides a convenient large diameter steel disk that can act as one driving plate of the clutch. Some racing clutches use small multi-plate disk packs that are not part of the flywheel. Both clutch and flywheel are enclosed in a conical , which (in a rear-wheel drive car) usually forms the main mounting for the gearbox.
