strange clutch issue

k its happened to me the last 3 times ive taken the jeep out. it drives fine until ive been out for awhile then it seems that the more i use the clutch the less pressure i have until it flat out wont engage the clutch. my fluid levels appear to be fine and i cant find a leak. whats wierd is it only does this after ive been driving awhile and it will work again after i pump the clutch 10-15 times. i figured if it was a leak my fluid would be low but its not.....any pointers?

Had the same problem you've ether one have air in your system, or two there's a leak within your housing were the rod pushes out the clutch fork, if it is leaking your going to have to get a new master and slave cylinder for it.

Even when you replace it if you dont put it in right you will blow the seal on he inside, when you get a new one they have a plastic straps that hold the rod down, install like that and when it's tightened you push on the clutch Pedal and it breaks those snaps off, if he installed it by taking those off first could have created a small leak in the seal

im thinking that a new master cylinder is cheap enough to replace im assuming i can find detailed instructions on that somewhere. im best with video if anyone has a link that would be helpful.
