Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
You will need a friend to help you for this
Buy some new brake fluid, about 500ml should be enough
you can buy some clear plastic tube with about a 3mm hole through it, 300 to 400mm long or 1ft to 1ft 4inches, put one end of the tube into a small jar or something to catch the fluid when it comes out of the bleeder valve
find the bleeder on the disc caliper and also on the backing plate of the rear wheels unless it has rear disc brakes as well, slip the other end of the plastic tube over the bleeder screw
top up the brake fluid in the resevoir
get you friend or whoever to pump the brake pedal
while you put the spanner on the bleeder screw
tell your friend to push down on the pedal
loosen the bleeder screw about half a turn until the brake fluid starts to come through the plastic tubing
your friend has to keep the pressure on the brake pedal as it will go to the floor when you open the bleeder
once it has been pushed to the floor tell your friend to hold it down while you close the bleeder screw
once you have closed the bleeder screw he or she can pump the pedal up again until it goes hard
repeat this process until there is a good flow of fluid coming through with no air
check the brake fluid resevoir several times during this process to make sure that is not empty because if it is empty you will have to start the process all over again
repeat this process for all 4 wheels
hope this has helped
