If the vehicle is not fitted with ABS it can be bled the "usual" way.
Loosen all 4 bleed screws and tighten again. This is to ensure that during the bleed process you will not have diffyculty in opening the bleed screw while your assistant waits with his foot on the brake pedal.
Connect a piece of tube to the bleed screw. Find a small clear canister and fill it halfway with clean brake fluid. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal a couple times and then keep pressure on the pedal. Starting with the wheel furthest from the master cylinder open the bleed screw allowing the fluid to exit the system while your assistant keeps pressure on the pedal, and then close it. Pump the pedal again and repeat until the fluid exiting the system into the container is clear and bubble-free. Move onto the next furthest wheel from the master cylinder and repeat.
If your vehicle is fitted with ABS you will need a scan tool to actaute the ABS valves in order to do a complete bleed. Bear in mind that this is only nescasary if the system ran "dry" (no fluid in reservoir) or if you replaced the master cylinder or ABS unit.
The ABS bleed is done BEFORE the wheel bleed

I am having problem bleeding the brakes on my 2002 kia sportage.Every time I bleed the brakes I only get the peddle up just a bit but not enough.Is there a special way to do bleed them.There doesn't seem...


When bleeding never allow the Masrer Cylinder get below 1/4 full or you will introduce more air, which will mean starting over again. I helps if you have a length of clear plastic tubing that fits snugly over the tip of the bleed nipple so that you can see if there is any air bubbles being released. You usually start at the rear wheel that has the longest run of pipe from the master cylinder. Next is the other rear wheel. Next is the front wheel with the longest run and last is the remaining front wheel. Proceedure:
1. Have an assistant pump the brake pedal 3 or 4 time then hold down an maintain weight on pedal as it drops when fluid is released.
2. Release bleed nipple and observe fluid coming out for bubbles then retighten when flow stops.
3. Assistant then allows pedal up and waits for a few seconds for cylinder piston to refill fully.
4. Repeat from #1 until no more air bubbles are visible, then go to next wheel.
If pedal still feels a little spongy repeat process after a couple of days driving with engine running so that any remaining tiny air bubbles are purged.
You should also make sure that the brake pedal free travel adjustment is correct because if the free travel is insufficient, it will not allow the master cylinder to operate correctly..

2000 Kia Sportage Losing brake fluid. Is it a big


No it is not that big of a deal. It is normally 2-3 nuts and your brake lines. The things to make sure of is that brake fluid does not get on any of the electronics below the cylinder by using a towel. Also make sure to bleed the cylinder before hooking the brake lines in all the way. Basically you can do this by screwing in the brake lines about half way and hitting the brake pedal about half way down. Make sure the reservoir does not get empty. Bleed it until there is nothing but fluid coming out of both lines. Obviously this is best done with two people. Have them hold the pedal down while you tighten the lines fully and you should be good.

If you don't have any brake lines leaking, change the master cylinder, bench bleed the new one then bleed the blakes, starting with the right rear, left rear, right front, then left front. If the booster was gone, you would hear air leaking out of it when you pressed the pedal down.
