spongy clutch

Today, and a few other times in the past, when i shift out of second at high rpms, the clutch will get kind of spongy. WHat I mean by that is that there is a litle bit of play where there is no resistance before the pedle becomes firm again. if I put it in N and pop the clutch a few times it goes away.....clutch fluid?

not hard at all man, go to the slave cylinder loosen the bleeder screw and run a hose from the bleeder screw into a bottle that already has some brake fluid in it and pump the clutch pedal keep an eye on the clutch resivor and make sure to keep it full, while you pump it, that is one way of doing it.
