    Vehicle is at 60,000 miles, its the reg cab 4 cyl '05, filled brake fluid the other day, went to clean truck today noticed brake fluid on the truck floor underneath clutch pedal, brake fluid resevoir is at min, dont have time and patience as of late to having to take clutch apart and bleed etc. so I am letting a mechanic friend look at it this monday while I am out of town on work.

    Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue or problem, the clutch it self works fine, engages well, pedal free play and engagement are at correct points, so seems a little early for the master cylinder to be gone, and I have no one here at moment to help check the slave cylinder, any input, advice, info is welcome!

    I will be attempting to replace my clutch master next week or so.

    Yep. Had mine replaced last Dec at the dealer for around 325. I had the master cylinder replaced even though the dealer wanted to replace both master and slave. My clutch still squeaks sometimes as heard from the outside of the cab, but I think it's the bearing on the input shaft, not the slave cylinder.
