Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
Are you just opening the bleeder and letting it run out? If so have someone pump the brakes and hold the pedal while you open and close the bleeder don't let off the brake pedal until bleeder is closed . Repeat this process until only fluid comes out . You probably have to bleed both sides . Keep an eye on the fluid so the resivor doesn't run out then you'll have start all over.

SOURCE: unable to bleed front brakes
loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck

Why were the brake lines replaced?
Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...
if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.

SOURCE: i have a 2005 titan
There is no need to bleed the system unless you opened the lines or the reservoir ran dry. The pedal should stiffen up once the pads have reseated. If you do have to bleed, leave the top on or you will spill fluid. To bleed, have one person pump up the pedal and hold it down while you open and close the bleeder. They should not release the pedal until the bleeder is closed. Do this repeatedly until no air bubbles come out. Am I making sense?
