Brake bleeding procedure

make sure you have plenty of fluid in the resivoir. Turn the steering either right or left to access the bleeder valve. You will need a second to pump the break pedal at least three times and hold on the third. Break the bleeder loose. Only enough to blow air and/or fluid out. When it stops blowing (only lasts a second), tighten the valve up. Remember the second person CANNOT release pressure from the pedal until you tell them. Repeat this procedure until only fluid comes out with no air. Check the fluid level again and do same procedure for all four wheels. Use loud communication to tell your helper what to do. Example : "pump it up. Hold on three. Say when." then the helper will say "ok". You bleed and lock it back. Yell, "pump it up. Say when" this should resolve the issue. DO NOT LET THE RESIVOIR RUN DRY!

Press pedel makes air swishing sound but no power brake pressure

The power brake booster, is not holding vacuum, that's the hissing noise you hear, and that's why you don't have power brake's, the only fix is replacing the booster.

My Volvo 850 1996 had spongy brakes with the brake pedel traveling some distance before the biting point. If the brake pedel was punped you coul get a higher pedel. My local mechanic blead the brakes and...

I would first bleed the brakes again -- maybe there is still a small amount of air still in the lines. If this doesn't work and there is no visible leak, I would have to suspect the master cylinder is "leaking by" internally. A new one shouldn't be failing already, but it's happened before.

Break bleeding

try bleeding the brakes as a system. start by making sure the master cylinder is full. then have a Friend step on the brakes and release 3-5 times. the last one they should hold as you break lose the bleeder on the passenger side rear, then do the driver side rear ,(check fluid) next passenger front and then the driver side front do each wheel until you don't see any or hear any air, thats the way i have always bleed brake systems. hope this helps

If you are having air come out whe you press the brakes, that means that the seal in the brake booster is gone. You'll have to replace the booster
