Question about Mitsubishi Expo
The typical master is located near the clutch pedal, be it inside or on the firewall.
The slave is located on the bell housing or transmission case attached to it.
The fluid loss source should be easy to find knowing this.
On some vehicles, it is possible to rebuild either for little money (wear parts would be in a kit), but buying them new is a safer bet since the rebuild should be accompanied by some work on the cylinder itself since these are subject to get corroded (I don't know anyone who actually changes the hydraulic fluid), and it is normally hygroscopic and can absorb water to cause corrosion in the system.
I don't know what the cost is for your Expo but there might be factory rebuilds available if the list price new is high enough to make it worthwhile for someone to rebuild them. 'Remanufactured' master and slave cylinders are generally done well with the cylinder walls cleaned up by gently boring them and then fitting them with oversized pistons.
If the fluid is that copious, you'd better make sure that there are no ruptured hoses or failed metallic lines since even blown seals shouldn't cause more than just leakage.
