If you get to it in time, you should be OK.
Flush it all, pull the slave and take it apart to clean it all. Clean out the M/C also.....Then refill and bleed.
Many here will say ATF lasts longer than Mineral Oil.
Sounds like something to try, yes the slave is wet. regarding bleeding I have one of those syringe so you push the fluid up from the bottom, guess I need to make sure all the brake fluid is out. I have fork oil I am positive so maybe give it a whirl. You are also saying pull the slave and clean it up so I will see what gives. I see we are down to only a few replacements now that Evo is out. My clutch has been working fine, any reason to pull the push rod?
