Default tranny help

i have a problem with my clutch loosing presure as im driving it around town and i have to pump it a few times so i can shift ! i blead it today a few times and it seams to be a little better but it still sometimes is hard to pull it to gear and i think the clutch pedel should have more presure ! i was told it most likely is my clutch master cylinder does any one have any input on this ? if its not that i can only see it being the slave/through out baring but i didnt think when those went out it would cause it to lose presure and alow me to pump it back up?

Bleed it and see what it does.

I know my Bronco's slave cylinder went out and it had little pressure in it but brake fluid was everywhere.. check for leaks around the slave cylinder..

master keeps the pressure, as far as failure.. unless there is a leak.
Masters are not that hard to change. slave requires tranny removal

i had the same problem with my 90, i was losing fluid tho, it turned out to be my slave cylinder, and damn what a pain in the ass. i would look towards the slave, unless your not losing fluid...

Yeah I have have never lost any fluid the only time I have ever added any was when I blead it the other day ! I even had my friend pull the inspection place and it's dry in the bellhouseing he said it would be a mess in there if the slave was leaking
