Need urgent Clutch help please!!!

I'm the owner of a 1994 E36 325IS. For the past eight months I have been having clutch issues in that the clutch pedal loses pressure while driving and stays down and forces the car to stall. At times when I pull it back up with my feet the pressure comes right back at other times the pressure takes forever to build back up. I changed the slave cylinder in April of this year, because we thought that may have been the problem. However the problem still kept happening on and off. Just last week I replaced the entire clutch kit (clutch, pressure plate and throwout bearing and all) bleed out the system. All that was done on Tuesday the car drove like new on weds, didn't drive in on thursday, drove great on friday and by lastnight the problem was back again. I am getting totally frustrated. Could it be that my Master cylinder need to just be replaced. I bought a new one along with the clutch kit just didn't install it yet.


Thanks alot for the help guys.

Yeah... There are 2 or 3 seals in the master (as front/rear are independent), one or more may be worn allowing fluid to flow-back... Not an expensive or hard job either.
Otherwise, bleed again !
