So i recently bought a 01 ws6 6 speed. This is my second 6 speed car. It seems that after a day or two of hard driving i loose clutch presure and have to fill up the clutch reservor with brake fluid. I would think that this means the slave cylender is going out but the car doesnt leak a drop of fluid? I also can not down shift into first gear without it grinding really bad, but if i stop and shift into second than first it works just fine? He told me the dealer rebuilt the trany a few years prior and that it had been like that since he owned it. any help would be appreciated thanks...

Its gotta be the slave leaking

Try not to drive it until the issue is fixed. A dragging clutch (likely caused by the slave leaking, as mentioned) creates excessive wear on internal transmission components, which is not good.
Many times the slave will leak and puddle fluid inside the bellhousing, and then it runs out when you are driving. Thats probably the reason you're not seeing a visible leak.
