Leak from Clutch Master Cyl?
So I was driving to work today on 205 and a truck rolled, leaving me stuck in stop and go traffic for 30 minutes.
Towards the end of this, the clutch pedal in my 98 Legacy GT was starting to stick to the floor.
Heres what happens:
Depress clutch to shift gear
Shift into 1st
give it gas
at this point, the clutch starts engaging even though the pedal is all the way down.
lift up foot
pedal stays down.
I can finagle it and drive it around, but I need to fix it obviously.
The fluid in the clutch cylinder on the firewall looks a bit low on fluid. There was also liquid all over half of the transmition, that was actually smoking a little. The liquid wasn't just on the tranny though, there were a few places where it was on the motor too.
I Think the leak is coming from the tube that goes between the master and slave cylinders, both those cylinders are only ~8 months old, I replaced them, but none of the hoses in between.
Thanks for any input

The BE/Bh had a similar problem, there is a TSB about it. Probably the same problem. Something was replaced on my car but can't remember what it was.
