Re: brake fluid leaking
It looks a faulty brake pump, to check it- have some one else with you to watch the pump fluid while you are pumping the brake pedal, if there is an air bubble come up the fluid then you should change the brake pump or kit.

The clutch hydraulic system has a problem-either the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder on the bell housing may be at fault.
If the brake fluid is low in the clutch master cylinder reservoir, there may be a leak to the outside. Refill and check for leaks while someone pumps the clutch pedal. Check around the clutch master cylinder (also under the dash- if wet there around the top of the clutch pedal or if wet on the carpet below the pedal, the master cylinder is leaking.) Check the single line from the clutch master to the bell housing where the slave cylinder is. If no leaks found, likely the clutch master cylinder or the slave cylinder has failed internally.
Is it safe: there won't be any further damage caused by running it, but if shifting gets harder and harder to do, that may cause a driveability problem.
When my MX6 was doing this it turned out to be an hydraulic leak from the clutch master cylinder, which runs on the same fluid reservoir as the brakes. Clutch master cylinder replaced and all good again!
you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com
Pump the clutch pedal and then check for leaks again, including under the dash where the rod from the pedal goes into the clutch master cylinder. Once you find the leak, replace what's leaking and bleed the system to restore the pressure (bleeds from the slave unit, just like bleeding brakes)
the clutch is hydraulic . you need to look on the fire wall for a reservoir . and fill it look on the cap it will tell you what fluid to use . after you refill it pump the clutch a few times the wait 5 minutes and pump it again . check the fluid again pump again if the fluid is leaking out you'll have this trouble again till you fix the leak.
You have a leak in the master cylinder. If brake fluid is leaking into the vehicle I would say I have not heard of this problem before but anything is possible anyway the likely problem is the master cylinder is worn and leaking fluid and air - that's why you have to puimp the brakes. It really isn't that expensive if you provide the parts once it is diagnosed - you really should get it repaired right away though because they can go out completely without warning. Hope this helps.
