Clutch/shifting problems looking for advice

My truck seems to be leaking fluid or something.It started like a week ago i checked my fluids 2 days before and they were all fine and then i drove to work and on my way home my truck wouldnt go into gear so i popped the hood and the clutch fluid was out.filled it up and it was fine untile the next morning.and then it wouldnt go into gear again!so for the last week ive been filling my clutch fluid everytime i get a chance.I talked to my paps and he said its probably some cylinder leaking.i dunno.what do u guys think it is?and how should i go on fixing it?thnks

check the slave like veryone else says. But in order to replace it you have to drop the tranny. Oh and make sure the mechanic VACUUM bleeds it. Mine didnt and he ended up replacing my master cylinder for free before i told him it needed to be vacuum bled.

the proper way to bleed the clutch system is to fill it then let it gravity bleed for a few mins then refill it and pump the pedal 50 times. it is a "self bleeding" system. not vacuum bleeding it had nothing to do with your master going bad.

my master didnt go bad. had he vacuum bled it there never woulda been a need for a new master cylinder. and he did "gravity bleed" it about 15 times he said and that didnt work.
