    If there is no evidence of a fluid leak i would suspect that the seals in the master cylinder had collapsed if they have done it once they will do it again so i would rebuild the master cylinder using a rebuild kit which will replace the seals and piston

    I agree. Also, be sure you are putting the correct brake fluid in there.

    Enjoy,

    +1 on the rebuild, I'd think there would some evidence of leakage.
