    Slowly pump the clutch pedal several times and see if it starts to come back. Then check for fluid on the ground under the car.

    Brake fluid (which is probably what is in the reservoir) will dissipate after it drips onto a garage floor. Not sure how something with a boiling point north of 470 degrees does that, but that's what happens.

    Look for missing paint along the body from the mc to the slave. If you have a leak you'll find it that way quick. Brake fluid dissolves paint quickly.

    If you decide to replace the master get a Tick Performance MC. Well, well worth the money.

    OK , update.... I bought a pump from Advance Auto, I tried to pump the fluid through it to get the air out , nothing. So I just started pushing th pedal to the floor until I actuall got a pedal, it was hard , and normal feeling. So I take it for a ride, and it was perfect, then about 2 miles into the ride i could feel the pedal getting soft , and realeasing more at the bottom, I still just drove it, about 15 mins. into the ride I decided I better get it home, I cant go into reverse, and its almost impossibe to get into any other gear, So I assume I have to bleed the master???

    Yes it will have to be bled. If it was empty long enough you could have corrosion inside the master or slave. If that is the case you might as well replace it.
