If it is only the clutch, I would flush that system out completly and put DOT 4 back in it and run it. Now if you did that to the brake system ...................

Yea, luckily it seems, it was just the clutch. Will be flushing several times and hoping it is a near miss.

a month or so ago I was going out for a day trip,up into VT and NH for the day...my clutch was kinda spongy. I looked into the resevoir and saw I was low on fluid. It was early in the morning and I was in a rush. Went into the garage and only found DOT 3 brake fluid.
Not reading the owners manual I said WTF..and added the DOT 3 to the resevoir and did a 350+ mile trip that day with no ill effects.

A few days later I read a post here about mixing different types of fluid where every reply was...WARNING!WARNING!DANGER!!DANGER!!
I desided I guess I ought to change the juice and put in the proper stuff. When I went to the local NAPA store snd told him what I did he said "better change that s*** ASAP coz it'll turn into cement and screw up all your seals..Lucky for me it all turned out ok..no leaks or clutch slave failure. I DID however,run a 24 oz bottle of purple stuff thru the system to make sure everything fresh again.
