I think the slave cylinder is inside the bellhousing, big job.

Testimonial: "Thanks, it was the master cylinder. Mechanic fixed it. $200"
the throw out bearing is consolidated with the slave cylinder. That part will needed to be replaced if you are loosing your fluid all the time. The whole trns will needed to be removed so I would change evrything such as the clutch plate, pressure plate, and the pilot bearing as well. This is recommended if you do alot of shifting (city driving) with 80,000 miles or more on it.
If leaking you should show the leak between the engine and trans. If not the line could have a crack in it so I would investigate first where the leak is at. If between the engine and trans it is a bad throwout bearing

This is a tricky problem, but there IS a solution.
Get a mini hand Vac, most often referred to as the Miti Mini hand vac. Place the round suction cup on the end of the hose and place this inside your clutch master cylinder. With the master topped off, and the minivac in place, begin vacuuming your system to about 30lbs. Be sure that the little canister included with the vac is in place to catch the fluid as it vacuums, and you will see those nasty bubbles rise to the surface. WAIT for those bubbles to creep into the little canister and dissappear then push the release button. Do this several times till the bubbles are all gone. You will then have a completely clean, swept and sealed air free system.

Either your master cylinder is going ( I had the same problem on my F350 truck) or there is still a small amount of air in the system. As long as the air bubble are dispersed like when the pedal is pumped, it will most likely work. The solution is to properly bleed the system. The easiest is to borrow a vacum pump and **** a few oz of fluid through the bleed screw. The second best requires two people. Have someone sit in the drivers seat and as you open the screw have them press the pedal to the floor holding it there till you retighten the screw. Do this 10 or twelve times making sure you always have fluid in the resevoir. This will push all air out of the system.
