Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
Same as bleeding any brake system . 2 person operation. pump up the brake pedal and hold it down -undo the bleed screw until the pedal is on the floor. hold there until the bleed screw is tightened . repeat the process until no air comes out of the bleed screw. Always start at the longest line first and finish at the shortest. Keep an eye on the reservoir level during the process.

should be a bleeder screw on each caliper, unless, they were broken off in a previous attempt? They have to be there

Sounds like a problem with the proportioning valve. Try not to push the pedal down to far when bleeding. The valve sounds like it is getting stuck closed, and takes a little bit to release and allow fluid to pass again.

Why were the brake lines replaced?
Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...
if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.
