    I have a 6 speed 2011 and I continue to have brake fluid on my floor. The first time the stealership replaced the slave, 2nd time they replaced the master, now three weeks later same problem again. I called the attourney general to see what my rights were and he stated that in order for them to classify it as a Lemon they need to have attempted four times to fix the problem. This sucks... You spend 30,000 + for a new rig and it is already been in the shop twice with only 1500 miles on it. What a pain in my ass!

    It could be the clutch actuator as well. I don't know if it uses brake fluid, but I know that sometimes the fluid from the actuator can enter the cabin along the actuator rod.

    3rd time is also the lemon law in some states. I'd look into it. No reason to have a new truck in the shop more than once for same issue.

    I had the same problem happen to me but it was the clutch. Replaced the brakes twice then realized it was the clutch cylinder leaking. Make sure they check it all!

    Yep that is where it is coming from. The plunger/ rod that is on the back side of the clutch. When I push in the clutch and release it, over and over soon fluid comes out
