--------  It is the black/dark cylinder mounted on or close to the firewall, with one round/serrated nut on top.    There is one (or 2?) master cylinders just above the drivers footwell area but inside the engine compartment .   One has a little rectangular fluid res.  , I checked it too and it has green/blue color fluid.   I guess  the ATF has not gone everywhere, maybe? ?    So, if that be true, then maybe I won't have to rebuild/replace All the cylinders .   ...Thanks,         ... Stephen R.

  ATF in the BRAKE Fluid

  or ATF in the power steering reservoir?

  BIG difference!
