Question 93 ford escort manual transmission

I'm having problems with my 93 Ford Escort. It has manual transmission. When I shift and press on the gas sometimes it doesn't engage. The rpm's go up like it's in nuetral, then it will catch. It's been getting worse. How can I check the transmission fluid? Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be causing this?

It sounds like the clutch is going bad. You can of course check and change the fluid, but lack of fluid will just make it hard to change gears. How many miles on the car? Was the clutch ever changed?

It has 170,000 miles. As far as I know the clutch hasn't been changed. I have noticed some fluid coming down the clutch itself. I have had to refill the brake fluid, that has a clutch resevoir, several times. I appreciate your response.

Sounds like a leaky clutch cylinder causing the trouble.
