Now that i started the clutch would not engage i open the cylinder where the clutch fluid goes everything work good after a couple of pumps. Well, after that it has been doing the same thing over and over about 10 min difference i look under the hood no fluid and i install and then its good for about 10 more min. I have looked for leaks but nothing i have no idea what it can be any help would be appreciated

If you keep adding fluid it has to gosomewhere. Two places to look. In the cab on the firewall at the clutch peddle is where the master cylinder will show leaking. Under the Jeep at the inspection plate between engine and trans is where you will find the slave cylinder leak.

It is a closed system so it has to go somewhere. If it leaks it is getting air back in no matter how small. So look closely and decide which parts bad and then replace it.

You may depending on funds want to replace both at the same time with a completely assembled and bled assy.

You arent seeing any leaking fluid but you lost fluid? You are internal slave so your clutch slave cylinder is inside your trans. If you arent finding a leak on the outside then it is leaking inside the trans.
