soft clutch

i have a 93 2.5 5 speed. randomly today the clutch got much softer than it has ever been, however i still have full clutch fluid. the clutch pedal rests about halfway between the floor and the brake, but it just feels off compared to what it was. any ideas on whats going on?

First you can try bleeding or

Check for small leaks or sweating. Look inside the cab where the peddle connects to the master on the firewall if carpeted pull back and see if there is any fluid.

Crawl underneath and look at the slave cylinder if internal look for drops on the bottom if the bell housing.

If you find no leaks you may just have a worn out master bypassing internally.

At the firewall it would be a Master Cylinder.

picking up a new master tomorrow. how long should it take time wise between removal of old, install of new, and bleeding the system? 2 hours?

30 mins to remove and install and 15 mins to bleed. Hardest part is getting the peddle connection.
