slave cylinder again?

Hey whats up guys I haven't been on in a while but I have a problem with my ranger. I started it up today and everything seemed fine. I went to take off and the clutch pedal was slightly sticking to the floor before releasing. I drove it down the road and the problem went away and it shifted fine. I replaced the slave at around 67k it now has 88k on it. I put a ford OEM slave in there. Is my slaving going again? When the slave went at 67k it just went all at once and I couldn't move the truck.

I just ran out and checked the fluid its full. I pulled the peep hole on the tranny and I didn't feel anything wet in there. Pushed the pedal after sitting for over 5 hours and it felt fine.

It's not uncommon at all......I'm on my 5th or 6th slave at only 115,000 miles. Granted, some where changed for good measure while the tranny was out for replacement, but still.

IMO...swap that master cyl. What's going on with yours sounds more master than slave.
