Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech. I cannotsee or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes what you have done so far and have a question before we start. When you opened the bleeder at the slave cylinder did any fluid come out?
