In order to bleed a brake line you will probably need a second person to pump the brakes when the car is off than you need to find the bleeder on the caliper/wheel cylinder it will be towards the top of the caliper/wheel cylinder when you find it make sure you can get it loose than when the bleeder is tight you need someone to pump up the brakes with the car off they need to hold the brakes tight and you need to open the bleeder don't take the bleeder off the pedal should go to the floor when you open the bleeder they need to hold it there until you tighten the bleeder you will half to keep doing this until you feel you have gotten all the air out of that line than go to the next caliper/wheel cylinder make sure you don't let the brake fluid reservoir go empty or you will half to start over. when you are done your brake pedal should be tight if it feels spongy you probably still have air in one of the lines. the bleeder should look something like this.how to bleed a line - 25301046-scwq1xk2qxq0hxt3anvu5zxk-2-0.jpg

Sounds like the proportioning valve is stuck. You may need to break a front bleeder loose and hit the pedal the unseat the valve. Then blead the rearbrakse and then bleed the wheel where you broke the bleeder loose. That should work.

Good Luck

SOURCE: no fluid come out when bleeding brakes drivers side front

Brake rubber flex line could be collapsed,,or kinked,,,i suggest loosening of the line at the master cylinder distribution block (this will give you the ability of loosening off one line at a time,,and have some one push the brake pedal down,,if you see fluid at this point then you know it has to be the line or the caliper.
if you get no pressure from the distribution block then its the master cylinders fault

SOURCE: how to bleed braked on 1998 ford explorer

It will take 2 of you. 1 fill up the resevoir.2 you need to open the bleed nipple on the furthest brake from the master.3 have somone pump the brake once then close the nipple have them pump it again and hold their foot down on the brake, while they have their foot down on the brake open the nipple untill all of the air and fluid comes out, then close the nipple. Make sure you keep the resevoir topped up. Do this severel times until only fluid comes out of the nipple. Repeat on all of the wheels. You can buy a kit that pressurises the system so you can do it on your own but they are expensive for a 1 time deal.
Good luck.

How to bleed brakes


Supplies you will need:

bottle of brake fluid

small clear container

18" length of 1/4 inch I.D. clear tubing

wrench that fits your bleed screw

another person

Open hood,loosen lid to brake reservoir to be able to monitor fluid level. Removing the tires makes it easier to access bleed screws but not necessary on all vehicles. Start at the caliper farthest from the reservoir, attach tubing onto bleed screw so it is tight fitted on bleed nipple.Put enough brake fluid into clear container and put open end of tubing into fluid, ensure tube stays in fluid throughout entire process as to not suck air into system. Have your assistant sit in car and pump brake pedal three times and hold to floor, then loosen bleed screw just enough to relieve pressure in brake line, the brake pedal will sink right to the floor..this is normal. DO NOT RELEASE BRAKE PEDAL UNTIL BLEED SCREW IS TIGHTENED AGAIN. Repeat this process until clear tube is full of brake fluid and no bubbles come out of caliper. Repeat steps for all calipers. Hope this helps

My brake lamp light keeps coming on as soon as i start my car and step on the brake the light comes and stays on i've checked all the rear lights and they all work


will be due to lack of pressure more than lack of fluid, try bleeding the brakes, the light should go away unless you have a split in one of your brake lines or your master cylinder is leaking

Check your emergency brake. Make sure it isn't partially pressed in. Try unplugging the switch to the emergency brake and see if the light goes out; if it does the switch is bad.

Need to rest my proportional brake valve on my 1996 sonoma 4x4 I replaced all the brake lines to the ABS, the ABS brake light stays on and I have only less than half the brake fluid flow at the rear


By the sounds of it you need to bleed your brakes the ABS light should go out by itself if this is done unless their is a ABS problem.Remeber when you bleed brakes that have ABS you must have the vehicle running when you bleed them.

How do i bleed the brake system


First, before you do the bleeding, did you "open" any of the lines? Was there a caliper replaced?

If no line was opened, you do not need to bleed the brakes.

If so, please let me know and I will post the bleed procedures for you.

Why are you thinking about bleeding the brakes? Spongy brake pedal?

No brakes after changing brake caliper & bleeding system


Sounds like you still have air in your brake lines. Make sure all your brake lines are tight. Then bleed again. Bleed the trouble side first, meaning right side, then go to front left, back left then back right, make sure that your brake fluid is also full
