Probably a master cylinder internal leak. The seal probably has a leak and it leaks pressure back to the reservoir. Hope it is not the slave, but that would have a puddle on the ground. The master is under the dash on the pedal arm. KeithG wrote: > My clutch had been working fine with no symptoms until it failed > yesterday.
