Have you checked the bake fluid level in the clutch master cylinder?

cant find a clutch master cylinder
Transmission Mechanic: kalamykid, shop owner/tech replied 6 months ago

The clutch master cylinder and the brake master cylinder both use the same reservoir for there fluid. See if the brake master cylinder is low on fluid please? If it is low, fill it to the full mark and pump the clutch pedal and see if the pedal starts to get firm.
