Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
I repaired the break lines, now i need to bleed them on my 2000 grand caravan how do i do that proper thank you
Bleeding brakes is two person operation. Check to see where bleeder valve is on calipers, usually on back side. Should be 3/8". They are hopefully covered with rubber boots or caps. If not then I would spray them with breakaway to assist in loosening. These are easily snapped off if they are frozen so be careful. Person in car, ENGINE OFF, pumps brake pedal until it becomes hard and holds it there. Person bleeding brakes turns bleeder valve to open just a crack, at first air will escape and some fluid. Person pressing pedal down will tell you pedal is down all the way. At this point tighten bleeder valve. Now repeat operation until you have fluid only coming from bleeder valve. Be careful as the fluid will shoot out of bleeder and hit you right in the face, safety glasses are recommended. Be sure to top off brake fluid reservoir before, during and after this operation. Test drive short distance to see if all air is evacuated from system, you'll know if there is air still in system if you have a soft pedal, if so repeat once more.
