If the bleed nipples are welded solid in the caliper, and the tip broken, then you need to have the nipples drilled out and helicoils fitted by a local engineering workshop, or replace the caliper.

You will have to get yourself a drill or a extractor and remove it and install a new one.

I don't see the brake bleeder nut on the rear of my 2001 Ford Taurus LX. Are they bleed from the front only?

Probably is broken off. In drum brakes cylinders,you can just bleed the brake cup by tilting it outward at the top,allowing bubbles to leave.
Disc brakes can't be done that way. You might loosen the brake line and see if bubbles will leave. It will be messy. don-ohio (:^)

My 2000 chevy s10 i cant find the bleeder screw for brakes

The bleeder will be on the brake caliper itself. One bleeder on each caliper on the front. IF you have rear disc brakes it should be on the caliper on the rears too. Somewhere near the side or the top of the calipers.

Tried to bleed brakes by loosening the brake lines because the bleeder screws were broke off. it doesn't seem to be bleeding them good> what to do?

Only two options...remove the wheel cylinder asd carefully drill out the bleeder screw without damaging the threads or seat, or...replace the wheel cylinder (they aren't all that expensive). Since the line enters the cylinder lower that the bleeder, it is impossible to get the air out of there unless you turn the car upside down!!! No...don't try that!!!
