Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
Check any flexible hoses used for condition, check clutch reservoir that it still contains fluid.
If it does, ask an assistant to press the clutch down fully - while you watch the liquid level. It should fall, then rise again when off the pedal. If it just stays put, you need new seals on the master cylinder.
If all the fluid is gone, but no obvious leaks, remove the slave cylinder, and replace the seals in that or replace with new unit.
it is possible that you just have a slight leak in the slave cylnder, allowing the fluid level to fall enough to allow air in the system giving the fault. Again, replace seals in slave cylinder, and refill with clean brake/clutch fluid, and bleed out the air using the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder.
Any reasonable garage will do this for you if access is difficult.
