I've had a mechanic work on my clutch about 7 times. Today it failed again. Seems like it last 6 to 8 week. They've replaced the slave and master and new clutch. I just don't know what to do but just keep taking it back till they get it right. If I take it somewhere else I'll have to pay.

Would you explain "failed again"? Was pressure plate replaced and flywheel machined? In the 7 times was fault always the same?

Failed as in it loses pressure. I can feel it and it sticks to the floor and can pull it back up an use for awhile but will go out eventually. Yes it was replaced and also replaced slave cylinder twice. Seems to be the same every time works for while then goes out.

Suspect seal in slave sucking air when clutch applied and released. Any fluid loss? Also check where line attaches to slave.

No fluid loss. Don't you think they would have checked that the last time or two? Frustrating!
