hello My clutch looses pressure and when i park it on a hill. especially with the nose facing up hill. Ive bleed it twice and it works for awhile but i keep loosing fluid and i cant seem to find where its leaking from. i've been avoiding parking on hills, its been working for awhile but it needs to be fixed. might it be the master cylinder or a pin hole leak in a line? oh the brakes never loose pressure only the clutch. any advice would be apreciated.

thaks fellas,

is the oil dripping on the ground or is there no sign of it ? if the latter then check at the bottom of the steering column . if there is oil there then it is probably the clutch master cylinder . there is a rubber tube from the reservoir to a plastic plug on clutch m/c . oil from the reservoir keeps the clutch m/c topped up through this tube .
the problem i have is that oil is leaking from the plastic plug at the back of the cylinder but i have to replace the whole master cylinder .
