Question clutch problem, need help.

i have a 98 2.5 RS around 113,000km or so on the vehicle. i have this vehicle since new.
i have a clutch problem and was wondering if anyone can help?

my clutch pedal goes to the floor. has been happening for the last two summers(not including this one coming up). only happens in summer time, warm to hot weather. does not happen when it rains or on cool days.
subaru dealer has replaced clutch master cylinder around 73,000km. that was last winter, on a educated guess. my RS had alot of warranty claims(short block, trannys etc.)
wondering if related? oh it also happens half the times when a/c is on.

clutch problem will go away if i drive on a highway/freeway for a good distance without shifting gears, parked for a few hours.

if anyone can help please let me know. i love my scooby but with all the warranty and problems, it's starting to get to me.

BTW no mods on my RS. i have checked all the basic items(no leaks whatsoever) my clutch fluid seems to get dirty really fast?

one last thing, i've been working at honda the last five years tech/service writer. MY CO-WORKERS ARE MAKING FUN OF MY SCOOBY!!!! please help.

My 1998 did this quite often when it was hot and humid.

I remember seeing something about changing your clutch fluid from DOT3 to DOT4....but I am not too sure about it. I never personally found a solution, so I unfortunately can't help you 100%

Search under "Clutch" and see what you can come up with.
