Your Isuzu has a hydraulic clutch, and the two main components are the clutch master cylinder,whitch is mounted to the firewall , or rear wall of the engine compartment, approx right above the clutch pedal, and the clutch slave cylinder, which is mounted to the transmission. They are connected with metal lines, similar to your brakes.

First, find and check the fluid reservoir on the clutch master cylinder, and see if it is low or empty. If it is, you have a leak, and you need to examine both main cylinders and the area around them , to see if you can spot the leaking area. If your reservoir is full, then you have had a cylinder fail internally, and it is then a process of eliminating which one is the most likely culprit.

It's usually the clutch master or slave cylinder that is bad when the pedal drops to the floor suddenly. Check both to see which one is leaking fluid and that's your bad one.

My clutch pedal went to the floor when i started my car without depressing it. I have fluid in my resivor.

Beings as the pedal fell to the floor without you depressing it,after the motor started, I would get a flashlight and look for the clutch linkage ,from the inside to the master ,then to the slave cylinder. The linkage may have come disconnected somewhere. Good Luck !!!!!!!!!
