SOURCE: Clutch pedal stays on floor
the problem is that either the master or slave cylinder for the hydraulic clutch have failed, it is always recommended that they both replaced together, u can bleed the clutch but the problem will occur again.

No this operation needs ramps -- if there is no fluid in the reservoir this means that the slave cylinder or master cylinder is leaking - you may have to replace one or both of these components.

Either your master cylinder is going ( I had the same problem on my F350 truck) or there is still a small amount of air in the system. As long as the air bubble are dispersed like when the pedal is pumped, it will most likely work. The solution is to properly bleed the system. The easiest is to borrow a vacum pump and **** a few oz of fluid through the bleed screw. The second best requires two people. Have someone sit in the drivers seat and as you open the screw have them press the pedal to the floor holding it there till you retighten the screw. Do this 10 or twelve times making sure you always have fluid in the resevoir. This will push all air out of the system.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Inspect and fill clutch master cylinder reservoir with appropriate hydraulic oil. You will want to check this during the bleeding process making sure it doesn't run out or you will get air into the system again. Leave cap off of reservoir.
2. Have your friend camp in the drivers seat to push in and let out the clutch pedal when you tell him to.
3. During this procedure DO NOT allow your friend to "pump" the clutch pedal.
4. You will be opening and closing the bleed screw on the slave cylinder as instructed below. CAUTION: During this procedure protect your eyes from squirting brake fluid by using a small hose and a soda bottle. Brake fluid is nasty stuff so wear gloves.
5. (Helper) Press clutch pedal in fully and hold.
6. (You) Open the bleed screw to allow fluid to escape.
7. (You) Close bleed screw quickly.
8. (Helper) Release pedal completely
9. (You) Top off fluid in reservoir. Leave cap off of reservoir.
10. Repeat steps #6 - #9 no less than 10 times before going to #12 below. NO PUMPING!
11. Now you will want to purge the slave cylinder of any air bubbles that might be trapped inside of it.
12. Grab the clutch fork and push towards the slave cylinder pushing the rod all of the way into the slave cylinder as far as it will go AND HOLD it in.
13. (You) open bleed valve and command helper to push the clutch down slowly purging any air that was trapped in the slave cylinder
14. (Helper) As soon as the pedal hits the floor command your bleeder monkey to close the valve before you let the pedal return from the floor.
15. Repeat steps #6 - #9 one last time
