If your SMG fluid keeps running low i would look under your car to find the clutch slave cylinder and see if it is leaking. If it is you will probably need to replace it. Hope that helps!

Leaking internal clutch slave cylinders can be repaired with a kit and do not require that you buy a brand new unit. It's from the O ring inside the cylinder or the boot.

fcpeuro sells it or ecstuning. You can also find the kits on amazon or ebay.
