First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

hi, the problem you are having could be down to a couple of things the first and most likely would be that the clutch needs replacing so this would need checking, the problem could also be either the master or slave cylinder on the hydraulic clutch, but my best guess would be your clutch needs replacing.
if the clutch pedal goes to the floor and stays their when you take your foot off the pedal then this indicates are problem with either of the clutch slave or master cylinders but if the clutch pedal comes up on its own then this indicates the clutch needs replacing.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

the automatic clutch adjuster mechanism at the top of the pedal inside the cab is my first suspect before the clutch itself
