No Clutch Pedal Pressure

There is no pressure in my clutch pedal, i've had this before because there was no brake fluid. I added brake fluid and pump the brakes 100 times and the pedal would be fine. But recently, the brake fluid has been going from full to emply in about two days. There must be a leak some where. Also, i added brake fluid and tried to pump the clutch and the clutch still has no pressure. I have a mazda mx6 1993.

most likely the slave cylinder on the gearbox is leaking, or the flexible clutch hose is split under the battery tray. both cheap parts and easy fix, worst case scenario it could be the master cylinder in the pedal box, but its rare that they fail

If your rubber line isn't split I highly suggest replacing both master and slave cylinders. I replaced my slave cylinder and shortly after my master went.

Is there any other way to add more DOT brake fluid into the system other than the master cylinder.
