1st need to know where the leak is? Is it a rusted line, or? To bleed after repairing leak, do the following: Have a helper start the Jeep, go to the wheel the greatest distance from the master cylinder, have helper pump brake pedal 3 times, pushing down about 1/2 way on pedal each time. 3rd time, he should hold pedal at 1/2 way down point while you open bleeder to let air/fluid out. As flow is about to stop, close bleeder. Repeat til all air removed. Check master cyl and refill often, because if you draw in air, you have to start all over. Go to the next wheel that's now the greatest distance from master cyl, repeat, til you get to wheel closest to master cyl. Done!!

How do you bleed the brakes on a 2006 chevy silverado 1500


  • Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid before beginning. Jack the car up so that the two rear wheels are about six inches above the ground. Slide under the right rear wheel and look at the back of the brake system for a small bleed valve. A bleed valve is a hollow bolt. When loosened it will allow the brake fluid to flow out and result in the vehicle having no brakes Fit a rubber hose over the end of the bleed valve. Make sure it forms a tight seal and make sure the free end is below the level of fresh and clean brake fluid. As the brake fluid in the line pushes out of the system, you will see a bubble come from the end that is under fluid.Have a helper sit in the driver's seat and follow your instructions. Tell your helper to pump the brakes hard a few times. Open the bleeder valve and tell your helper to press the brake pedal firmly down to the floor and hold it there until you indicate otherwise. Close the bleeder valve and have your helper release the brake pedal. Repeat this process until you see a small bubble ejected from the tubing under the surface of the brake fluid in the jar. Once you have finished with this wheel, move to the left rear wheel. Before you begin the next wheel brake, refill the master cylinder reservoir. Get set up and repeat the same steps for this tire.The next two wheels you will bleed are the right front wheel and then the left front wheel. Bleed the wheels in the order of the longest brake line first and then working towards the shortest brake line. Refill the master cylinder reservoir before beginning each new wheel. Once the rear brakes are finished, lower the car and jack up the front of the car. Remember to road test the brakes and make sure they operate well

    I just replaced brakes,front and rear,on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee. The rear brake calipers had to be replaced and the parking brakes were shot so I did not reinstall. I bled brakes all around and have a...


    Sound like you either have air in the system or a leak. Make sure all the connections are tight on the new calipers. clean off all the connections and blessed screws with brake cleaner. Then have your partner press on the brake pedal while you look for leaks. Reblead the entire system again starting at the right rear, than the left rear, than the right front, and finally the left front. Continue bleeding at each wheel until no air comes out. make sure you don,t let the master cylinder go dry. It will take several pedal pumps for the caliper pistons to take up the gap in between the pads and rotors. I assume you have a helper pushing on the brake pedal during the bedding process?

    does the truck have rear drum brakes on the rear? if so then the fluid is leaking out of the rear wheel cylinders. or the master cylinder is leaking fluid into the brake booster.

    How to bleed brakes on a 99 jeep wrangler?


    Hi, there are bleed screws on the cylinders located on the top and back of the brake plate right where the brake line is attached. Have an assistant pump up and hold the brake pedal, open the bleed screw on one side and the pedal should go to the floor, have the assistant continue to hold it down until you have tightened the bleeder, now repeat until no more air comes out. Repeat for the other side.

    Bleeding brake system how?


    BLEED BRAKE SYSTEM

    Make sure one end of the Jeep is raised (starting with the rear end) and secure on jack stands and the wheels on each side have been removed. If you have been working on the brakes, this should already be done.

    Connect a clear rubber tube to the bleeder valve on the right rear brake caliper. Start with this end and side because it is farthest from the master cylinder.Place the tube's other end into a container partially filled with brake fluid.

    Open the bleeder valve on the caliper and have an assistant press on the brake pedal inside the Jeep. Look for a mixture of air and fluid to come out of the valve. Once all the air is purged and the fluid runs cleanly from the valve, close the screw and remove the tube.

    Repeat the process for all four brakes. Move to the left rear next, followed by the right front and the left front. If you need to, reconnect the Jeep's rear wheels and lower the rear end before raising the front end and removing those wheels.

    Check the level of fluid in the master cylinder periodically as you bleed the brakes. If the level drops below the needed fill line, add more fluid. Use fresh fluid, not any that you have bled from the brakes.

    Start the Jeep's engine after bleeding all the brakes and press on the brake pedal. You might need to do this repeatedly to seat new brake pads you just installed. Turn off the engine and hold down on the pedal. Bleed the brakes again if the pedal sink within 15 to 20 seconds.

    Hi,
    Have your son pump the brake pedal until it gets hard. Then as you loosen the bleeder screw at that wheel tell him to let his foot ride the pedal and don't take his foot off until you tighten the bleeder screw.
    You see, the pressiure he is building will force the airt out. Do this a couple of times until you get a good stream of brake fluid. He should be able to notice a good pedal again... I'm suspecting he has none or little pedal right now. Make sure you refill fluid in your master cylinder.
    I hope this helps... Good luck!

    Brake pedal goes all the way to the floor!


    I have changed brake pads before and did not lose any fluid but air can get in the lines. Brake fluid is not compressible while air is, so if you get air in your lines it compresses when you hit the pedal there fore the pedal goes down to floor and your brakes dont grab that good. You can either bleed the brakes your self by starting at the wheel furthest away from the brake fluid reservoir and unscrewing bleeder hose and letting the fluid just bleed out. (get something to catch it and dispose of it properly). Make sure you keep the reservoir under your hood full of brake fluid while letting the other stuff by tires bleed out. Work your way from the furthest tire first and the closest one to the reservoir last. GOODLUCK!
