Look around...

Do you see any signs of fluid leak? Anything on the inboard side of the tires or a stain on the garage floor? Yes, it could be the clutch slave cylinder. Do you see any fluid trail in the bell housing area? How does the clutch feel?

There is a little bit of a fluid leak around the bellhousing area. As for the clutch the best i can describe it would be that i dont feel like it is grabbing like it should from take off at say a stop light, the car hesitates trying to get going
