Start from the farthest wheel from the master cylinder. Passenger rear, then the driver rear, passenger front, and then the driver front. Complete all repairs, fill the master cylinder, and find a friend to pump the brake for you. Have them pump the brakes 8 to 10 times and hold the brake on, while they hold the brake on open the bleeder, fluid and air will come out and the pedal will go to the floor. Have them push it to the floor and hold it there, then have them say floor. When they say floor close the bleeder before they release the pedal. repeat this process at each wheel until you get fluid without air in it at each wheel. Make sure you check the fluid level in the master cylinder often so as not to run it dry.

Did you bench bleed the replacement master cylinder?If you did and there is NO air in the braking system then look for improperly adjusted rear brakes[if drum],or a siezed caliper slide[s] if disc brake equipped.

1996 astro van brakes are mushy. Is there a


I have the same Astro and the same problem. It has surprised me to learn that it is the read drums that are the culprit - shown to me by my local Les Swchab. For some reason they build up with dust and do not grab properly. So the solution would be to use a rear brake shoe that is superior to the type that Les Schawb uses!!! A type that produces less 'dust'.

Bleed the brakes on 2002 buick lesaber need to power bleed?


Not really. Works better but if you are going to manually bleed brakes start at the farest point. 1) RR 2) LR 3) RF 4) LF don't forget to check brake res. and refill as needed. I am assuming you know how to bleed brakes.
