Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
1) fill the master with proper brake fluid DOT 3/4.
2) raise the vehicle off ground or secure it off the ground on jack stands
3) remove all 4 wheels/tires
5)start bleeding the farthest wheel cylinder bleeder valve from the master cylinder, which is the right rear wheel.
6) have someone in the truck with it running pump the pedal at least five solid up and down times, the last time hold it down firmly and say OK!!
7) person under vehicle will open the bleeder valve momentarilly till the air purges, then close it and tell the pumper person to pump it again, repeat this proceedure until that wheel runs clear brake fluid, free of air.
8) go to the next wheel (left rear), and repeat the same process, but remember to refill the master everytime you finish with a wheel bleeding, do this until you have reached the last wheel which is the left front and after filling the master check the brake pedal....should go down but feel firm and not be able to pump up(get a higher pedal when pumping the brakes).
Once this firmnmess has been accomplished you have achieved a perfect brake bleeding service on your vehicle, just make sure that the engine is idling when doing this work as the power brake booster needs to be assisting the brake fluid pressure throughout the hydraulic lines to be succesful.

Hi, there are bleed screws on the cylinders located on the top and back of the brake plate right where the brake line is attached.
Have an assistant pump up and hold the brake pedal, open the bleed screw on one side and the pedal should go to the floor, have the assistant continue to hold it down until you have tightened the bleeder, now repeat until no more air comes out. Repeat for the other side.

get a 6 cylinder motor drop in this is best gas saver for most vehicles 4 cylinders dont have the ability to push all the weight of a vehicle but runs smoothly
6 cylinders are as i put in words are evenly balanced for everyday use and not gas guzzler either

Bleeder screw should be somewhere on the slave cylinder, generally somewhere above the centerline of the unit. (unless someone snapped it off. If that's the case, sometimes you can drill it out, but this takes a lot of skill mixed with some luck. (You can't damage the threads at all, and if you go too deep you will damage the sealing surface). Therefore better to replace it.

A special pump is used to back bleed the system. If you don't own one then you have to be patient and just keep pumping the clutch pedal until it comes back. It can take a half hour to get it back. Just depents on how much air is inside.
