The effective way is to get some one to assisting you by pedalling the pedal , connect a hose to the wheel you need to bleed and then unscrew the bleeding knop a little bit and let your assistant hit the pedal all the way down and hold and tighten the bleeding nozzel keep on doing this till you see no bubbles of air getting out from the hose you connected and put in ajar half filled with brake fluid

After bleeding brakes still have spongy brakes


you still have some air in the lines. go back thru the bleed process again if that doesn't work, get to a power brake bleeder.(amazon about$70) that is a system that puts pressure on top of mc to push fluid thru the system as you open bleed screws. did you know you can adjust brakes by holding down lock button and pumping emergency brake handle. good luck

What the brake bleeding sequence for my 95 prizm? How do I know if the brake lines need to be repaired?


all basics....
longest to shortest order. just look at lines you can see where they go in 5min.
rusted or leaking or crushed lines are bad. super basics.
damaged, no , only the bleed valves were touched and yes they do break, and for sure in salt belt. (wiki that)
its needs bleeding,
if the MC and slaves (all parts) dont leak there is air in the system.
if all air is out (i use pressure bleeding) but if all out, then the MC is bad.
spongy is always air , bleed again, repeat.
get a book on brakes, see how to do bleeding 6 ways.
some ways are better, or like me I use 3 ways.
keep in mind , air wants to float up, and tell me which way are you using... 2man way? opposite of the float rule?
sure. its classic way and can be very hard.

NO BRAKES, REPLACED LINES, MASTER CYLINDER, SUPPLY LINES. BLED BRAKES AND STILL NO PDAL WHEN START ENGINE. BOOSTER HAS PRESSURE


How did you bleed the brakes? I find that gravity bleeding brake systems works better than the pumping and release method. To gravity bleed the brakes you will be required to remove the calipers (one at a time preferably), remove the brake fluid reservior cap (make sure to top off the fluid as often as required during the bleeding process). In order to gravity bleed you wil have to turn the caliper with the bleeder turned straight up, lossen the bleeder and watch for air bubbles. The main purpose for doing this is to get trapped air out of the calipers themselves that usually gets trapped above the bleeder if done with the caliper installed. Try this if you havent already and let me know how it turns out for you. Always worked like a charm for me.

You did bleed out the master cylinder?? You need to check the system for leaks and make sure the front and rear brake pads/shoes are in good condition and that there is no air in any of the calipers or wheel cylinders and that when you press on the brake pedal that the fluid is actually getting to them.
(bleed those too)

Bleeding Brakes on a 2001 Silverado Z71


Tony,

When bleeding brakes after the system has been opened for service (you didn't say if you were doing any work on the master cylinder) you should start with the farthest wheel away from the master cylinder, which is the righ rear. Fill the master cylinder, then have an assitant "pump up" the brake pedal. Tell them to hold it down firmly, then open the bleeder on the wheel cylinder(s). Do not release the brake pedal until you have closed the bleeder valve again. You'll know when the air is out - there won't be any more bubbles. Since this vehicle is 2001, this would be a great opportunity to flush the system. Just make sure you have enough brake fluid (DOT 3 or 4, depending on your vehicle). Good luck!
