First fill the brake resivior then have someone pump pedal three times and hold pedal down, while you start at the right rear wheel open the bleeder screw and let fluid out and then close make sure who ever pumps pedal keeps preasure on it as you open bleeder because pedal will drop they must push and follow pedal, after you clsoe bleeder you then have them pump pedal again three times you will do this four to five times on each wheel make sure to check fluid level after each wheel is bleed, after the left rear you move to left rear then right front then last is left front, hope this helps.

I had to replace the brake lines in the rear of my car. The brake peddle still goes to the floor. do I need to bled the brakes some more?


Yes, try bleeding the brakes again, you may have to bleed the front brakes too. when the master cylinder goes dry from a broken line sometime air gets into the front lines also. otherwise the master cylinder could be bad when the pedal goes past it normal travel sometime it tears the seals inside and you be unable to build pressure in the master cylinder

The rear brakes seem unable to bleed. i think the proportioning valve bad.


You are correct in assuming the proportioning valve,but it may not be bad,if it detects,loss of fluid pressure,it will shut down those brake lines.Try bleeding the master cylinder,then the wheels,and you may have to do it a couple of times,this will allow the proportioning valve allow the wheels with fluid pressure,if this was at all helpful,please rate,thank you,

Unable to bleed brakes


If you tried to compress the caliper w/o the bleed port open you could have backed the fluids up into the ABS box and damaged one of the one way valves in it.

Unable to bleed front brakes


loosen the front brake line that goes to the master cylinder fill master cylinder up with fluid and bleed it first by attaching a flexible line from master cylinder front brake side submerge that line into jar of brakefluid keeping air from entering line get someone to pump brake pedal while ur holding line in a jar keep refilling the brake resivoir so no air gets in, once the master is bled front brake side then reattach the origional brake line then remove bleed screw from caliper and let fluid gravity flow down to calliper then bleed the normal way. more than likely your master cylinder has air trapped in the front portion good luck
