sorry for the delay............
Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (akaCustomer and I look forward to helping you!”

IF there is no signs of Fluid on the ground or Transmission area, This is likely a Internal Leak in the Master Cylinder, which the Fluid goes back when the Pedal is pushed OR Leak at the Slave Cylinder.
Problem with the Slave Cylinder, is the Transmission needs to be removed to get to it
