Question about 2003 Ford Focus
Brake fluid is bypassing the seal inside the clutch master cylinder this maynot be an urgent problem yet but it will in time .suggest you replace it cheers MAL

assuming the linkage at the clutch is not broken, this symptom indicates a failed master cylinder. First check to see that slave piston is not coming out when pedal is pushed in (if it is, the problem is inside the clutch housing). You might also try bleeding the system before buying a new master cylinder. Let me know if you need any instructions.

Testimonial: "Bled the line. Changed the fluid. Working better, though somewhat spongy on the clutch pedal. May end up changing master and slave cylinders. "
Either there was some fluid there from the failed unit you replaced or the replacement is defective. Clean it up really well and work the clutch a few times, If new fluid appears, chances are the new one is leaking. Watch the fluid level...Is it going down? If it is that verifies a leak.
Good luck...hope its just residue!! (I hate doing jobs twice)

these chevy trucks have the most horrible slave cylinder set up and it is located in side the transmission housing. this is why you are getting fluid from that area. the slave cylinder is leaking and to replace it you will need to remove transmission from vehicle. while your there you should change the clutch because it is out. unless it was just change then just the slave. good luck

I would look into a new master cylinder for the clutch. because the clutch itself has been replaced does not mean they also changed the clutch hydraulic system which has a master and a slave.
