slave cylinder problems...

i was on my way to get donuts this morning before school every thing was goin just fine until i went to clutch to stop and my foot hit the floor....it only had about and inch of clutch...so i pulled it out of gear and turned onto the road....i released it and it didnt pop back up...so i kept messing with it and nothing....i crawled out looked under my truck and sure enough there was brake fluid everywhere.....so i had to call my brother to pull the mile up to the truck stop and had to ride with him to school....then my uncle came and got me and we drug it home....this is the second time that truck has up and quit on me when i was goin to that truck stop......it sucks...

now for my question...i cant figure out where the fluid is coming from....the cylinder is fine....i filled the resivior up and pulled the cylinder out of the bracket so i could press it and it was fine....then fluid started hitting me in the head....so i went up top and seen that there is a hole (it looks like its supposed to be there) and the fluid was dumping out of it (pri b/c i think i over filled it) so like the bright guy i am i plugged the hole....but it still drips and i cant find where its comming from....also if this is goin on could it be why my clutch is slipping????

It could be why your clutch is slipping. Only way to really find out is to drop the trans and inspect the clutch. Which you should do to make sure it is not damaged.

the clutch its self is fine other than its slipping so some of the material is off....it would lock fine until my petal started feeling funny then it started slipping i thought it was just b.c of my chip and injectors maybe i fried my clutch but now i think maybe its b/c my slave cylinder isnt getting the pressure it needs....i just dont know where to start looking for the leak or what the hole in the top of the cap for the resavoir is for.....i've never noticed the hole was open until today....i figured the hole was there to let the air out of somethin but then fluid started dumping out and now im having a hell of a time getting the slave cylinder back into the bracket and locked in place....

The hole is to release pressure. As the truck gets warm the fluid expands. If you over fill it yes that would be a place for the excess fluid to go.

Being slave cylinders are not real expensive I would replace it, then make sure you bleed all the air out.

Well if it is the line then replace the line and bleed the system.
