Question about Kia Sportage
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
