Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Alero
I am suspicious as the brake system is repairable by some one who knows their business. Replace the brake master cylinder and any leaking cylinders and the system only needs bleeding correctly again. Start at the longest line first and work back to the shortest. The quote is way over the top unless there is an abs in the system. I would get a second quote anyway and get a list of the work that needs to be done

SOURCE: repair brake line. need to
Have someone sit in the car and pump the brake pedal about ten times, there is a bleeder on the wheel cylinder (back of brake assy or on top) it is a nut with a nipple on it with a hole in the center, you may need a special wrench, open the bleeder until the brake pedal sinks to the floor, then tighten while the pedal is still on the floor, caution don't release the pedal until the bleeder is closed, start at the RR wheel bleeder, do all four wheels in this order RR, LR, RF, LF. top off the master cylinder fluid tank after each wheel and before you start the job, don't get the fluid on the paint, if you do wash it off with water right away or it will take the paint off the car. OK, go to it!

Its probably how your bleeding your brakes, but first make sure the bleeding nipples are facing upward. You should bleed diagonaly, front pass wheel then rear driver wheel. Then front driver wheel and rear pass wheel. The abs light has its own computer your have to get it scanned to clear the codes and turn off the light

SOURCE: bleed brakes
I dont understand your question are you wanting to bleed your brakes? you need to people to do this ..... one person to press on the petal while you have the brake hose pointing into a jar or container to catch the brake fluid this will take any air out of the line .... start at the back brakes and make you way to the front .....but you have to keep replacing your brake fuild in the master cylinder to full or you'll be bleeding nothing out the lines and off setting your brakes. keep your brake fuild at mid level in the master cyclinder at all times. Hope this helped
