Ok if it was an air leak, then I dont think replacing the clutch with out opening the hydraulics would fix the issue. Yet it does.

+1, and even better when user "Dunning Kruger Effect" posted in this thread.

That's not true, pushing the slave cylinder in is very likely to push air back out at some point.

Have you tried bleeding the slave?

The slave has been bled repeatedly. Both traditionally and with a power bleeder.

Any other thoughts? The transmission gets back from being inspected today. I will update with the results.

Im just throwing this out there, but I would check and make sure the clutch fork is riding on the pivot ball correctly.

The Infinity dealer checked this exact thing since its so common on their cars. It was where it needed to be and was firming mounted.

I have the exact problem with mine. One day it would not go into gear, adjusted rod and it went in barely and got it home checked and bleed master and slave. No leaks. then started slipping after a drive in traffic. Took transmission out thinking I would find a problem and everything looked new. Pilot, throw out bearing felt and looked new, disc was about new with 13k miles on it. Im stumped. Emailed fm to see what they say.
