clutch master cylinder verses the slave cyl

I've got a bone stock 95 4 cyl 5 spd. At first I thought it was the transmission giving me troubles. At a stop I couldn't get it in gear. Now I have to shut the motor off and engage the transmission, then restart and off I go. I was told by some here it was the syncro's in the transmission that needed attention. I didn't want to believe it. Sometimes it worked perfectly. Now I am beginning to realize it could be the hydraulic clutch cylinders that are failing. I believe there are two hydraulic cylinders in the clutch system. My question is;
How do I know which cylinder (master/slave) is going bad? Should I replace the entire system (it comes in kit form)? Or do the master cylinder and hope it's that one? Being disabled, it's difficult to do myself, but I am willing to give it a shot. Any tips? I have read through all the responses in the search, coming away scratching my head. Short of bringing it to the dealer and dropping trough. Thanks all to who respond. Ctskip

Well ill say you got lucky on this one when it comes to being easy. You should buy the whole kit, it comes all together pre-bleed. then it just bolts on. On a scale of 1-10 its a 1 or 2. It sounds like it would solve your problem.

If that isn't it, you probably just need a new pilot bearing or a light coating of grease on the input shaft because the clutch is dragging intermittently. My 94 has done that twice since it was new and a bit of grease on the input shaft would fix it for years.

Definitely NOT a synchro problem.
