By what youre saying, it sounds like you have a leak somewhere. Check the master and slave cylinders, as well as the line input at the transmission for leakage. probably just some blown seals. Should not be a big thing.

defenitly. replace the master cylinder and slave cylinder. Don't just replace one with out the other. Bleed the lines like you would a brake system. Having some pump the pedal or using a vacula if you have access to a compressor.

Check where the master cylinder comes into the cabin through the firewall too, that's where mine was leaking and is a common spot. You can replace either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder seperately, both don't have to be changed at the same time.

Yeah, just figure out which one is leaking and replace it. It could also be a line leaking so check them as well. The line leaking is not as likely though, as most of it is hardline.

with the cost of a slave cylinder at about $15, i dont see any reason why not replace it at the time of replacing the master cylinder? A new m/c is about $35 from sanyco or coni-seal. I replaced both of mine at the same time since it was 'cheap' insurance' to eliminate both variables with one stone.

btw: when you bleed the clutch line dont "pump" it, slowly depress and b4 it get the the floor tighten the bleeder valve. repeat many many times.
dont let it get to the floor with the bleeder valve open, or you start over again. i bled mine 2 days ago.

wasn't implying to continue to pump the pedal. Just down once and it will stick to the floor the first few times, then open the screw then back up then down open repeat repeat repeat till all the air is out. Just trying to tell him its kinda the same conecpt as far as bleeding to get your clutch pedal back. Click the image to open in full size.

http://www.autohausaz.com they have the sanyco; sanyco manufactures many new hydraulic parts (brake m/c, clutch m/c slave cylinder wheel cylinders, they even make the hydraulics for stoptech) to many OE japanese companies. http://www.stopshopanddrive.com carries the same stuff, slightly different prices.
