Default clutch problems.......

I bought an 87 supra mk3 N/A the other day. The previous owner told me that he drove it to where it was parked. the problem I'm having is when I got in it to start it I push the clutch, turn the key, and release the clutch pedal, only to have it stay on the floor. I pulled it up, but now it has no pressure, won't go into gear, and snaps right to the floor as soon as u touch it. Not sure why this is, and didn't want to replace the entire assembly if it might just be something simple. Any thoughts would be much appreciated

Leaking master or slave cylinder. Check the fluid level in the smaller white/clear reservoir between the brake booster and fender, mounted on the firewall.

I think its the master. No leaks from what I can see. I'm thinking maybe plunger in master is stuck. I'm replacing both master and slave.

Turns out it was a dead slave cylinder.
