Ok, so i posted a forum about my clutch and its lack of pressure on the site a while ago. I followed everyone's advice and bled the clutch system. Afterwards the clutch had great pressure and felt like it was actually working. 5 days later it was back on the ground without pressure. I get under the car to look for leaks while i have a buddy press in the clutch but i can't see anything leaking. Any suggestsions as to what the hell is going on with my car? Feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Is the slave cylinder bypassing a little? Is it leaking so slowly that the brake fluid that does escape has a chance to dry from normal driving? It took me a while, but I've found evidence of this on my red REPU. I already bled it and all that jazz, so I started looking for other causes.



Isn't there a better subforum for this type of a question? You'll probably get more help.

If you think you are losing fluid but not sure where, pull the master out and inspect it. They sometimes leak into the firewall and you can't really tell just by checking the carpet near the pedals.

Its a 89 GXL, and it doesn't even run yet so it can't be anything from normal driving. The master cylinder loses fluid very slowly. I can sit there and push on the clutch for a while and you can't tell any difference in the amount of fluid in the master cylinder. However if i were to go back out say. . . two hours later half of the fluid in the master cylinder would be gone.
