    Low clutch fluid

    I have had a consistent problem over the last couple of years with the clutch
    fluid going low. Every 5 or 6 weeks I need to top it off, doesn't hold a lot to
    begin with, literally a 1/4 inch from the fill line. I start to notice that the pedal
    returns mushy or sticky. Is this a huge concern, or is it ok to just keep topping it off? I never see any fluid on the ground, and don't get any slip in
    the clutch itself. Launches like a space shuttle when asked to.

    most likely a bad slave cylinder. They '98-'00 cars have a crappy one that was redesigned for '01-'02

    Thanks, sounds like as long as it don't slip, topping it off will keep it going.
