Master Cylinder Help?

Yesterday I bled my lines for my clutch, and filled it back up with fluid. It was working and I drove it around, this morning I get in and it is back to the same problem, the clutch is really loose like it only catches at the last inch before all the way down, and after awhile it didn't catch anymore. Anyone have any suggestions?

do you have a leak? if no try bleeding again, if that doesn't fix it its probably the master. NAPA sells a new one for 60.00

The slave is inside of the transmission.. that would be a pain to do.
I'll look at the master

I have never heard of filling the slave, bleeder tube is on top so I don't see what you would possibly gain from doing this.
my jeep had about the same symptoms, a new master fixed it.

sure sounds like a leak... especially if you can fill it, pump it and have it work then slowly loose it. Not to cast out the slave cylinder, that could be where the leak is.

And if you can, put the word clutch in your title here on this thread. By saying master cylinder I think your gonna get a lot of brake folks looking to help when you need someone w/clutch experience. Just a thought...
