I think this car has a hydrolic clutch - the slave cylinder is right on the top of the transmission and easy to access. check its operation first - bleed it. I think it shares the master cylinder for the brakes. - I have seen failed throw out bearings as well , but you definitely need to start with the clutch slave cylinder operation.,
