Question Bleeding Slave cylinder steps

Can anyone tell me the proper steps to take in bleeding the slave cylinder? The pedal went soft on me, after inspecting the master cylinder was empty after looking further the bleeder valve on the slave was loose! Ive tightend the valve and filled the resevior. The master is holding fluid but with my bleeding pump/vacume connected at the slave cylinder i cant seem to get the bubbles out nor get a good pedal! I want to complete this succesfully before replacing the slave cylinder! Any advice on determing if the slave is bad?

Thanks for the help

It seems to me that you have to make a complete system bleeding (including ABS) at each wheel. As when you replace caliper pistons.

Good luck, Bim
