Hi gang..

I'm trying to figure out if I need to replace my master or slave clutch
cylinder. I haven't been able to discover which one is really the culprit so
I thought I'd describe it here and get some opinions and ideas..

If I let the car sit for a day or two the clutch will not work, the pedal
goes to the floor and does nothing.. I can fill the resevoir up with more
fluid, pump it a few dozen times and drive the car around without any
problem. The use of the clutch does not seem to speed up the loss of fluid..
If left sitting over night the clutch will almost work, two pumps of the
pedal and it's back to working well for the rest of the day..

Any ideas what may be causing this problem? I'm on a tight budget and I'd
like to just replace whatever is causing the problem...
