Clutch Problem

So i browsed a lot of the threads in here and I think i finally came up with a conclusion to my problem but i wanna hear what you guys have to say. My problem is I just installed a new clutch, pressure plate, throwout bearing, and a flywheel. Been driving for maybe a week with everything in it, doing good too. But just yesterday my transmission decided it didn't want to go into gear after i got stuck in traffic on the freeway. Well after about ten minutes of my truck being shut off i decided to start it again. I worked great and i got home. Well i checked the reservoir after all that and the rubber diaphragm was completely sucked into the reservoir, no fluid. I topped it off and let it sit over night. I woke up the next morning and drove it on some errands and it did great, then i started driving over to my friends house and it started to do the same thing again. But it never locked up like it did before but i did have to fill up the reservoir again. Is it the slave cylinder that is going out and tomorrow when i inspect it and open the inspection hole will i get a face full of brake fluid from the slave leaking in the bell housing?

#1, find out where your fluid is going. Could be a defective slave and filling your bellhousing with fluid.

#2, take a peek at your master as well.....the fluid's gotta be going somewhere. does the inside of the truck smell like brake fluid? are there no paint trails on the firewall below the master?


All my clutch issues were non-leakers, just worn out parts that bled off pressure and kept the same amount in the reserviour.
