Problem is that once air is introduced into the system  control network, this is the only way to get it out.

is there any chance that the air did not make its way into the system control network?  

also, should i expect to get some some type of psm failure warning?

Once the reservoir goes dry, you have air in the control network as it is just below the master cylinder, and no, you may not get an immediate PSM fault MIL.

that's a bummer.  thanks for answering my questions..

 

Anytime, that is why we are here, and always caution against letting air get into this system.  Without the diagnostic equipment, you can get into expensive difficulties.

Hi All

I just flushed/bled my clutch and brakes after reinstalling my tranny were I had disconnected the slave cylinder. I used the two person conventional method and it worked like a charm. I attached a clear hose from the nipple to a bottle where the hose end is emersed in fluid. Person one (wife) presses pedal, I open bleeder nipple and allow some fluid to flow, then close bleeder nipple then person one releases pedal, repeat.  In the case of clutch pedal, person one returns pedal to normal position for the first few bleed cycles. I kept the fluid in the master full and had no problems, no power bleeder.
