Question about 1985 Isuzu Trooper
It depends on how much fluid leaked out during the caliper change. as fluid leaks out of the open hose, it is replaced by air from the outside. if any air managed its way up to a junction point in the brake lines, then that air could be disseminated anywhere in the system. it is generally recommended to bleed all 4 beginning with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder and working your way closer. i hate doing this as much as the next guy, so if you think that not very much fluid got out during the caliper change then just bleed the one and see what happens. if it works, great. if not, then obviously you gotta do all of them

You don't need to bleed all of the brakes, just the one you installed. Hopefully you have someone handy to help you out. In case you aren't already aware: open bleeder, press brake all the way to floor, close bleeder, release brake and repeat. Don't run out of fluid. For future reference there is tool out that fills the lines from the bleeder to the master cylindar so you force air out of the lines from the caliper while also filling the lines. Good to have when you decide to replace everything. It's also a single person job so no more pumping the brakes, filling the resivor and keeping your fingers crossed that you got all the air out.
