+3 clutch slave. Replacement costs about $40 or you can rebuild for a bit less.

It is probably the slave but also check to see if it is your cam cover leaking all the way down there. Yes, it sounds like BS but I just went through this. Ordered a new slave because the boot was always wet. Ended up being the cam cover - duh!
