brake fluid

Drove the car today and the brake fluid light came on. It read at the min. mark so I filled it up to the max spot. I have no idea how I lost the brake fluid. Maybe a brake line becaus I doubt it came from the calipers and it was clear of fluid under the hood. Where should I check and what should I look for? Also I know I have an oil leak but I'm not sure how to test for it, any ideas?

check your slave cylinder for the clutch. Its fed by the same resevoir. If it springs a leak it will drain out through that.

Check both the Clutch slave and master cylinders. The telltail signs if the master is leaking is fluid in the drivers foot well near the clutch pedal and if the slave is leaking you may see some drips under the car or you can put the car of jack stands and have a look the slave is just above the started motor. Pelican sells replacement parts or you can try to rebuild the cylinders with replacement seals from NAPA.
