98 2.2 s10 clutch fluid leak?

Hey guys i have a 98 s10 2.2, I have to fill up my clutch fluid container like every 3 days or so? I didn't know if that was normal or not? I also noticed that it never goes completely empty and that it gets worse when it's cold outside? Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Either the master or slave cylinder. Look for the leak.

unless it has a ton of water in it then no. If your using the right stuff which is just DOT 3 brake fluid for the 98 it is a petroleum based product

look down at the trans where the hydraulic lines attach to the trans follow all the lines and everything, look for leaks.
