Trying to bleed clutch. Here is what I did so far (with no progress): Opened nipple & closed-push pedal down & hold as I opened nipple & closed it. Then let up & pumped it some more, opened nipple & closed it....did this 5x's and NOT resolved. The Slave Cylinder is still not moving. I opened & pulled off the hydraulic line off the reservoir to see IF when pumping IS it squirting oil when pumping... NO ! All I see is a light sprinkle of oil...I imagine it should give a good squirt???
Am I correct in determining that the reservoir cylinder IS at fault and not capable of pumping pressure???

Not certain what line you disconnected...was it the hose to the slave cylinder?? If so, the rubber may have collapsed blocking the flow of fluid to the slave cylinder. If so, time for a new hose.

Otherwise, fluid bypassing the clutch plunger in the master cylinder. If so, time for a new clutch master.
