Today i went to pull the red B*tch out of the garage, and the clutch pedal went to the floor and didn't come up. I looked down at the floor and there was fluid all over the firewall and the floor.
when i took a closer look i noticed that the silver ring on the firewall that the sylinder goes into has a little hole below it. When i pull the pedal back up it shoots fluid out of this. There is pleny of fluid left. What happened??? it worked fine the other day.

How much do they run, and how hard is it to do yourself

if you have two testicles and something to prove, you damn well better be able to do it yourself. They run anywhere from 60-120 dollars, depending on which brand and where you look. You can optionally get a rebuild kit for 25 odd dollars but I hear of nothing but failures with those.

Hmm.... ok, then... Well, it is rather self explanatory. Tear off the drivers side underdash, and everything that gets in the way of the clutch pedal. undo the two nuts holding the pedal to the cylinder. go back over to the engine bay and undo the nut-bolt-thingy that goes to the clutch hard line from the master cylinder. You should be home free.

Brake fluid = hot soup, don't let it get in your eye like I did (ouch) or on your paint.

edit: and though you may hate your supra, I like your supra! :)

Well from what you said I got the indication that it's from the master cylinder. If you jack up the car and see the slave cylinder (the cylinder mounted to the trans) leaking, then... it's the slave!

okay so there is no way for the slave cylinder to lead into my car, it must be the master cylinder.

pretty much, I find it far fetched that the slave cylinder would leak fluid through the interior. It's not attached to the body, it's attached only to the transmission. The master is the one that likes to piss into the carpet because it sits halfway into the interior.

hmm..

My master is going bad, and I have had a slow leak in the cabin, and after too much fluid is missing, the pedal will only grip about 3 or so inches from the floor.

if you look up under you dash at it, my fluid is coming from this little pinhole under the medal deal that the cylinder goes into.

Doesn't matter

If you know a friend at a shop, they may get it for "av cost" or "at cost" whatever it is.

Before markup. Start making some friends :D

It's all apart of the game.

Sometimes I get frustrated, but the important part is that I smile while I'm being frustrated... and I think as soon as you give up, the community is weeded out of dreamers, and the true enthusiasts are left behind...

To own a supra, and not break the bank too much; you need to do these things yourself.

Amen. A month ago I had no idea where the slave cylinder or master cylinder were. Now after working on my car for almost a month straight, I have learned so much. It's hella rewarding. Now I can read these threads and know what people are talking about.
