Re: Clutch Slipping ...
When the clutch slave cylinder fails, the brake fluid goes right into the clutch area, and the clutch will be contaminated and start to slip LONG before any brake fluid is noticed in the bottom of the bell housing. There is not a huge amount of brake fluid in the clutch system at best, and even if it is all pumped out it will pretty much coat everything in the clutch assembly and not much will actually be slung out to the housing.
If your clutch fluid level starts to go down, this is the problem.
