Question about Nissan Cars & Trucks
Most likely not your problem. Ideal bleeding frequency is 3 years
in ordinary climate... & normal circumstances.
Fording steams is not NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES...!!
Brake fluid and car finishes DO NOT mix well at all.
If you drop brake fluid on your paint... It will wipe away most paints in the blink... Gently flush with water and leave it COMPLETELY ALONE until you have had a serious talk with your local paint shop... weeks later.
Pressurized BRAKE-FLUID is an ABSOLUTELY
horrendous idea to me... Two friendly co-operative PARTNERS
is the only real safe bleeding method... If you like to squabble buy two extra 8 ounce cans of fluid for every anticipated squabble.
Have your peddle person ready to pump and hold... on command
and when they are ready to say "HOLDING".
EXPECT A PEDDLE FALL... and to "PUMP & HOLD" and "release" the peddle only on command... Your RESERVOIR person (probably you) should clean out cloudy brown fluid from the master cylinder and KEEP THE RESERVOIR half full at all times. The bleeder person (probably you) will also be bleeding at the wheels between constantly check that RESERVOIR.
Bleed the longest runs first... Use only fresh clean fluid and bleed until you see that fresh clean fluid come out of the bled brake.
Longest run on the back... alternate to the longest run on the front (these are really two separate systems). Be gentle and keep your bleeders safe & clean (they are actually quite delicate). Open only a little at a time... and snug them completely shut befor calling "RELEASE".
You likely will need to check & reset your ABS brake controller... If your troubles persist...
Vacuum bleeders suck... in EVERY sense of the word.
Hope this helps!

I think there only be one, but I've never heard of that valve actually causing your condition.
Did you get fluid from the bleeders at all wheels? Sometimes ABS systems interfere with brake bleeding. In that case, you need to follow Nissan's accepted practice. You would have to ask a Nissan mechanic or consult a repair manual.
If they all bled good, and still no brakes, I would be thinking it is the master cylinder gone bad. The interior seals on masters can wear, then leak internally. Won't leak to outside, but the master cannot force pressure in the brake lines, if the seals are bad.
