Question about 1990 Nissan 300ZX
You need to rebuild the seals in the cluth master cylinder. The seal around the pedal shaft that actuates the clutch is leaking fluid past the seal and onto the shaft connected to the pedal, inside the cabin.
A good parts store should be able to get you a seal rebuild kit, or remove the cylinder and bring it to a clutch shop or Nissan dealer and have them rebuild it for you. This is cheaper than dropping the car off and having them do all of the work.
Dismantling the master cylinder, replacing the seals, filling the system with fresh fluid and bleeding it should solve your problem. Be sure to replace all of the seals at one time, and don't be tempted to only replace the one that is leaking at the moment. They should all be the same age to last without further leaking. Otherwise you'll be chasing a series of problems with your clutch as the other old seals fail over time.
Hope this helps.
