Start by dumping all fluid from reservoir. Use fresh fluid & fill reservoir to the top of the filler neck, many times the rear section of the reservoir will develop an air pocket(very hard to see)& then no front brakes. Open all 4 bleeders & allow to gravity bleed for 10-20 minutes. Always making sure that the reservoir is FULL, then try pressure bleeding. Good luck!
