Answerfirst of all...don't drive it on the road.

i have a '93 corsica as well; i have had to replace the front brake line components and one rear. in the front, the brake line part that goes from the calipers to the steel brake-line connection often rott out and leak as mine did.

they should be replaced even if that isn't the leak on a car this old. as the previous responder said...pump the brakes several times with the master cylinder full and look where the fluid is coming from.

the one good thing about brakes is they are very easy to diagnose the problem especially on a car this old. if it's a metal part of the brake-line that is leaking i recommend having a mechanic replace it.

mine has 170,000 on it and runs fantastic so it's worth it.

What are the symptoms of a bad brake master cylinder?

A symptom you almost always feel is a brake pedal that will not hold. You stop, hold the brake, and the pedal will slowly move toward the floor. This is a sure sign the master cylinder is bad. A leaking master cylinder or one that sticks, is also a sign is is defective. When you replace the master cylinder replace all the brake fluid in the brake system and bleed the brakes. Moisture in the brake fluid will destroy a master cylinder and this may be why it failed.Brake fluid leaking from the master cylinder. When you stop and hold your foot on the break the brake pedal will slowly go to the floor. Either of these symptoms means your master cylinder must be replaced.
