Question about 1999 Dodge Caravan
The brakes don't create air, so it may be your bleeding procedure.
Always start at the right rear wheel, then left rear, then right front, then left front. Pump the pedal 3, maybe 4 times before you check the reservoir. If it ever goes dry, you MUST start over.
If you still get dirty fluid from the lines, then you have not purged all the air from the system. The clean fluid chases the dirty fluid, with a bubble of air in between.
You must also be sure to close the wheel cylinder port while the pedal is depressed, open when the pedal is being depressed. If the port is open when the pedal is released, air will be sucked back into the line.
