I'd say you prob. got a bit down the housing while bleeding it, & it took a while for it to all drain out.
Peek at the top to make sure there isn't any fresh fluid showing around the bleeder screw or the hose connection & you're good to go.
Fortunately it looks like a "non-problem". Just a spill you didn't know about.

|Blown2go||Thanks for the reply....the leak has slowed and all levels look good....resevoir is still full....also pulled the tranny fluid fill plug just to verify it wasn't overfilled and its not....I have some brake fluid in the back...going to drive it tomorrow and give it hell!|

In your case I'm guessing you need the slave cylinder replaced. If the leak is not bad then you may be able to drive on it for a while. In the mean time start saving your pennies for repairs. If you are not doing it yourself, start finding transmission shops you can trust and get quotes. When you pull the transmission you'll want to replace everything in there that is replaceable.

I replaced the clutch master cylinder last friday as it was leaking on the pedal.
It is still a small drip of brake fluid dripping out the bottom of the tranny where it bolts to the engine. Do slave cylinders just fail out of the blue or can I get away with a small drip for a little while? There really hasn't been a change in the reservoir level which I would have expected...maybe a very very little??? Clutch still operates fine. Going to drive it to work tomorrow and see how it goes. Extra bottle of brake fluid in the back just in case.

|sleepyboy||The level hasn't gone down at all, not even a tiny bit?|

When you say you replaced the "Master Slave Cylinder" what do you mean?
- Clutch Master Cylinder
- Clutch Slave Cylinder
- Brake Master Cylinder
- Brake Slave cylinder
Which one(s) did you replace?
Check both the clutch master cylinder reservoir and the brake master cylinder reservoir.

|Blown2go||well took it for a quick two mile jaunt....still shifting very very good....did excellent clutch drops from 4k too (might as well if it needs a new clutch) and pulled it back in the garage....tranny still slowly dripping clear brake fluid....but its driveable.....for now :(|

|Blown2go||a decent sized puddle.....unfortunately....like i said the reservoir remains the same....does that mean the slave cylinder will fail and then fail to disengage the clutch sometime soon regardless of reservoir level?|

|sleepyboy||Well then it's probably leaking and needs to be replaced which sucks. How much fluid is leaking out of it?|
