How do you bleed rear brakes on a 1995 saturn


same as bleeding any brake system . 2 person operation. pump up the brake pedal and hold it down -undo the bleed screw until the pedal is on the floor. hold there until the bleed screw is tightened . repeat the process until no air comes out of the bleed screw. Always start at the longest line first and finish at the shortest. Keep an eye on the reservoir level during the process.

How to bleed brakes on 94 firebird after putting brake fluid in


3 ways to bleed.
1) Gravity bleed. Start at the rear wheel brake farthest from the master cylinder. Open the bleeder screw about two full turns, and after a while, the brake fluid which is on top of the air will push the air out. When the brake fluid runs out, close the bleed screw. This can take 1/2 hour sometimes. You must keep checking that wheel so you can close the screw BEFORE you drain your master cylinder!
Continue this with all four wheels. P.S. Sometimes it will not work.Then you have to go to -
2) Bleed with a helper.
Helper gets in the car, and you ask them to push the brake pedal. You open the bleeder screw slowly and carefully, knowing the brake fluid may shoot out violently. Gently open it until bubbles come out. Close the screw, and ask the helper inside to pump up the pedal (about 5 times), and then hold it down medium hard. Continue to open the screw gently until only brake fluid comes out. Close that screw, and move to the next wheel. Repeat on each wheel. Check master cylinder ever few bleeds to keep it full.
or
3) take it somewhere and have it professionally bled with a machine.

Front and rear drum brakes, the pads are ok, but the brake pedal started going to the floor. When I tried to bleed them, the rear bleeder screws broke. So I replaced both wheel cylinders. The rubber...


OK........as you have stated that you have bled the brakes properly.....was there fluid coming out each bleed nipple as a flowing stream...????

And did you shut off the bleed nipple half way down stroke....?????

If this is all ok, then I would be looking at a failed master cylinder.......and what is occurring is the fluid is leaking from the primary to the secondary within the master cylinder !!!!!

I changed about everything,cylinders calipers,shoes,pads,and new rotors. then after following correct bleeding proceedures still no pedal.oh, and no e- brake either .what the heck am i doing wrong?(1991...


If you have no e brake that tells me your problem is something to do w/rear brakes. Pull your re brakes back apart and make sure everything is seated properly. Sounds like you didn't adjust rear shoes out far enough. Double check rear adjustment THEN bleed again - rt rear -> lft rear ->rt frt -> lft frt.

The tube for my brakes going from the caliper to the inside of the car burst. i went to replace them and it did not help my breaks are still not working. how do you properly bleed the brakes on a 2003 gmc...


Bleeding brakes can be very frustrating.There are two ways you can do them 1 gravity feed;this means that you undo the bleeder screw on the caliper or the wheel cylinder and let the brake fluid flow until all air is removed from the system or 2 suction bleed; this involves going to your auto supply store and buying a small hand held pump that creates a suction which in turn,once connected over the bleeder screw,allows you to pull brake fluid and the air out of the system.If you have a friend to help you have them depress the brake pedal until it reaches the floor while you loosen the bleeder screw and discharge the air/fluid.Tighten the screw before the brake pedal is released,release the pedal and repeat.Keep checking the master cylinder and do not let the fluid run low.Don't pump the pedal repeatedly,brake fluid is hydroscopic,which means it can absorb air directly into itself.Slowly and firmly does it until you have purged all the air.You will know when it is all gone because hard pedal will come back.Good Luck

How do i bleed the brakes on a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am?


Bleeding the Brake System
When any part of the hydraulic system has been disconnected for repair or
replacement, air may get into the lines and cause spongy pedal action (because
air can be compressed and brake fluid cannot). To correct this condition, it is
necessary to bleed the hydraulic system so to be sure all air is purged.

When bleeding the brake system, bleed one brake cylinder at a time, beginning
at the cylinder with the longest hydraulic line (farthest from the master
cylinder) first. ALWAYS Keep the master cylinder reservoir filled with brake
fluid during the bleeding operation. Never use brake fluid that has been drained
from the hydraulic system, no matter how clean it is.

The primary and secondary hydraulic brake systems are separate and are bled
independently. During the bleeding operation, do not allow the reservoir to run
dry. Keep the master cylinder reservoir filled with brake fluid.


  1. Clean all dirt from around the master cylinder fill cap, remove the cap and
    fill the master cylinder with brake fluid until the level is within 1/4 I n.
    (6mm) of the top edge of the reservoir.
  2. Clean the bleeder screws at all 4 wheels. The bleeder screws are located on
    the top of the brake calipers.
  3. Attach a length of rubber hose over the bleeder screw and place the other
    end of the hose in a glass jar, submerged in brake fluid.
  4. Starting at the right rear proceed in this order left front, left rear and
    right front.
  5. Open the bleeder screw 1/2 - 3/4 turn. Have an assistant slowly depress the
    brake pedal.
  6. Close the bleeder screw and tell your assistant to allow the brake pedal to
    return slowly. Continue this process to purge all air from the system.
  7. When bubbles cease to appear at the end of the bleeder hose, close the
    bleeder screw and remove the hose.
  8. Check the master cylinder fluid level and add fluid accordingly. Do this
    after bleeding each wheel.
  9. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.

I am having trouble bleeding the brakes.i just can't get it up at all .Can you help me.


Hi to bleed the brakes you need to do the following.

1 make sure fluid is topped up all the way
2, then start with one brake and undo the bleed screw use a container to catch any fluid that will come out, now with the bleed screw undone get someone to push the brake pedal down to the floor and hold it on the floor.
3 do bleed screw back up then get the person to pull the brake pedal back up it may be stiff but if you get your foot under you should be able to do it.
4 then once pedal is up undo bleed screw,
5 push pedal down
6 do bleed screw back up
7 pull pedal up
keep repeating that until all the air has stopped coming out, but make sure you keep an eye on the fluid level dont let it get low as you will have to bleed the whole system again

make sure you do the bleed screw up before pulling the brake pedal back up if you dont you will just be sucking air back into the system.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

What are the possible causes for spongy brakes in a mitsubishi 2004 endeavor


Air in the fluid lines is the cause unless something is bending. Bleed the brake lines--longest one first and progress to the nearest. Keep fluid topped up in the master cylinder as this progresses. A two person process--one pumping the brakes several times and then hold pressure while the other person cracks the bleed screw slightly until no air spits out. Close the screw if you need another pump. Make sure you are using the correct clean fluid--don't reuse the old discharged fluid.

Bleeding brakes


Simple way - takes 2 people. Get a small jar, and fill it part way with some brake fluid. Then use a short length of hose (one that fits snugly over the bleed screw), and keep one end in the brake fluid. With the engine off, loosen the bleed screw, and have the brake pedal slowly depressed. Close the bleed screw BEFORE releasing the brake pedal, and repeat until no air bubbles come out the hose. Top up the brake reserve with fluid.
