Have you checked the seal on the frewall/bulk head between the pushrod and master cylinder make sure it is in good condition. That would be my best guess with out looking at the car

the ONLY place brake fluid is likely to enter the vehicle inside is thru the brake booster that attaches the pedal to the master cylinder... the booster should NEVER have brake fluid in it which suggests that the master cylinder is leaking at the rear seal . Symptoms would be brake fluid level goin low frequently and if u apply the brake pedal repeatedly for a minute while vehicle is runnin it may start to run rough. If this is not adressed soon it may require u to replace the master cylinder and brake booster together...if u dont know how to bleed brakes for ur safety see a pro!
