Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix
Hello and welcome to fix ya.com.
Theres no need for you to have the car running, get an assistant to help you with the bleeding of brakes, make sure you have enough brake fluid and use a clear bottle or something and fill it about a quarter of brake fluid then have a rubber or plastic pipe one end fits on the bleed end and put the other end into the bottom of the bottle this will prevent air from going back through the system, start to bleed from the furthest wheel which is the passenger side rear then the other side and do the same to the front, when bleeding look out for air bubbles going into the bottle soon has they stop tell the assistant to hold the brake pedal down while you tighten the bleed valve.

No need to have the car running. That just helps supply the vacuum to make them work better but has nothing to do with the basic brake setup.
It's a fairly quick fun job. Take your time have a buddy and lots of brake fluid and you can do as good a job as any shop. (no matter what they say ;-])

You will need to bleed the brake system. I would start with the rear brakes lines and work towards the front.You must have key off engine off when bleeding brakes, apply pressure on brake pedal 10 times and hold. The brake line is now ready to be open. Open and let the stream of fluid come out and close the line tight. Then release brake pedal once bleeder screw is close. This procedure must be repeated twice front and back. After, brakes have been bleed pump the brake pedal before putting in drive.
Note: Don't let the resevoir run low on brake fluid. This will cause air bubbles to accumulate on the brake system. Always top off before opening bleeder screw.
