Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have replaced the rear disc brakes on a 1999 silverado 4 x 4. Every thing is new, rotors and calipers. I can not get the brakes to bleed out. Just a little fluid on driver side only.
I am trying to vacuum bleed my brakes. I replaced the pads and have no pedal at all. I cant draw any fluid through the bleeder nipple at all. Please help me out.

YOU WILL NEED A TECH2 SCANNER. THERE IS A SELECTION FOR AN AUTO BLEED PROCEDURE IN THE CHASSIS SECTION FOR ABS.

Try forcing a length of fish tank air supply tubing over the bleeder nipple (sometimes heating it up in hot water makes it go on easier) Place the end in a jar with some brake fluid in it. Open the valve and hit the brake a few times, keeping the hose end under the fluid in the jar, then let it sit, monitoring the master cyl so it does not go dry. Keep the jar lower than the caliper so there is some siphon effect...it should draw the air out of the system..When no more air bubbles out, close bleeder,.repeat at other wheel as well.
