Always start furthest away from the master cylinder and work towards it, this wiil insure all the air is removed from the lines.

I hope this may have assisted you.

I have a 1998 GMC Safari van I replaced all the brake lines cause they was broke I am now trying to get the brakes to blade they will not blade what can I do to get some break the brakes bled


You need a special tool to bleed the brakes because of the anti lock hydraulic control unit trapping air. Any good brake shop and most tire shops have this tool.

How to bleed brakes on my hyundai tiburon


Bleeding the brakes on this car requires special tools and a pressure bleeder. So you will need a shop to do this, tire shops are your best bet for the cost.

2001 chevy venture van the brake pedal is soft and it goes down to the floor is it the m/c or the abs unit


The symptom you have is caused by a defective Master cylinder. Bench bleed the master before installing to keep air out of the ABS hydraulic control unit, if air gets in the unit the car will need to bleed of air using a special tool at the dealer. Do not get brake fluid on any painted surfaces or in your eyes, use proper safety gear. Only use special tubing Flare nut wrenches on the brake line fittings or you will round them off. Making up new lines is a whole other thing that requires special skills and tools.

98 corvette what is the proper procedure to bleeding the brakes


  1. Raise the vehicle on a suitable support.
  2. Remove all four tire and wheel assemblies.
  3. Inspect the brake system for leaks and visual damage.
  4. Inspect the battery state of charge.
  5. Install a scan tool.
  6. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. With the scan tool, establish communications with the electronic brake control module (EBCM). Select Special Functions. Select Automated Bleed from the Special Functions menu.
  7. Bleed the base brake system. Follow the scan tool directions until the desired brake pedal height is achieved.
  8. If the bleed procedure is aborted, a malfunction exists. Perform the following steps before resuming the bleed procedure:
    1. If a DTC is detected, check for the cause and repair as necessary.
    2. If the brake pedal feels spongy, perform the conventional brake bleed procedure again.

  9. When the desired pedal height is achieved, press the brake pedal in order to inspect for firmness. Remove the scan tool.
  10. Install the tire and wheel assemblies. Inspect the brake fluid level.
  11. Road test the vehicle while inspecting that the pedal remains high and firm.

Bench Bleed the M/C first, then do not let it run dry during system bleeding. Parts stores sell a kit that helps installed m/c bleeding.

Bleeding brakes, The front brakes will not bleed out


In order to bleed the brakes on this car u need a special tool that holds the ABS Hydraulic control units pop-it valves open, without this special tool that plugs into the ABS you can't bleed the air out of the ABS control valve module, u either have to have the dealer do this or someone who has a factory equivalent of the ABS special bleeding tool, Snap-On tools most likely makes these, they are horribly expensive.
