I keep having to bleed and fill my clutch fluid line :facepalm:. Sooner or later I am going to get stuck in a situation where I can't just jump out and bleed the line, refill, and move on. I need to know if there is something I can fix easily to stop this or something I should look at replacing. I am really tempted to bring it into the shop but wanted to check first and try to fix it myself if possible.

I would look for leaking brake fluid. It could be the quick connect on the driver side of the tranny. If that is not leaking, is there any brake oil coming down from the area of the inspection plate on the bottom of the fly wheel? If there is, the slave will need to be replaced. Also look at the bleeder valve itself. That could be leaking. The only way that the oil could be getting out is via a leak. If the oil level is not coming down on the reservoir yet the clutch needs to be bled and that is what makes it so that fluid needs to be added, then maybe your master is somehow beginning to let fluid slip by?
