Question about 1996 Ford Windstar
Yes, you can use speed bleeder, but my concern is (I haven't used the product, but it does sound great) you have to remove the original bleeders to install these. Worst case scenario is breaking a bleeder off (which you can do just by attempting to loosen it). In my opinion, it's still best to have 2 people do it, one to pump the brakes (and YES the car should be running) and the other to bleed the brakes. If you use speed bleeder, you still need someone to watch to see when all the air is out, and only fluid is flowing. So, nice to have the speed bleeders, but if you didn't buy them yet, save the money. When will you have to bleed the brakes again? Probably not for a VERY long time, if ever. Spray the bleeders w/ some penetrating oil, wd-40, or similar type lubricant so they won't break off. If you can let it sit overnight, spraying several times, that should help. Let me know your progress! countrycurt0 If you are working inside, leave garage doors open because of exhaust fumes.
