What was your reason for opening the cap on the master cylinder in the first place?
I just had my car detailed earlier in the day and so I was admiring it at night. The detailer said he cleaned the engine so I was looking under the hood and decided to check the fluids. I wasn't thinking and decided to check the brake fluid.
I read somewhere that some ABS systems require that you pump the brakes 25-30 times before you open the master cylinder.
I'm just hoping I won't have problems down the road
