2004 montana bleed braking sequence


Start furthest from master cylinder. Passenger rear, driver rear, passenger front, driver front. These Montana vans have an abs system that can only be cycled by a computer. I had to take to a dealer to get them to bleed the system. Cost about $100 dollars. If you didn't remove any lines from master cylinder you should be okay w/out.

Bleed brakes


You start with the wheel farthest from the master cylinder. That would be the rear right wheel. Then the left rear wheel, the the front right, and finally the front left. Then repeat in same order order until you get no more air out of the lines.

2002 KIA Optima LX rear brakes done last year did fronts drums were good. Slowly over 2 months before fronts changed brake pedal is kicking back, now it kicks back at evenslower stops. Thinking its ABS sys...


make sure rotors were machined and are not out of spec. bleeding the brakes to start. make sure you do it in the correct bleeding sequence.most are RR, LR, RF, LF. check with manufacturer to be sure for your application. also check the brake linings front and rear for contamination (grease, brake fluid etc.) if this doesnt get you anywhere then unplug the ABS module. yes it is ok to do so and no you will not lose your brakes by doing this. if the problem stops then you need to try to bleed abs module. bleed it the same way you would a wheel. make sure key is off for this. it is a high pressure system and can injure you if your not careful.. once bled if it does not solve problem you will have to replace abs module. you can get new from dealer, remanufactured from parts store or used from salvage yard. before you do any of that bleed the brakes good. having a buddy to help makes this easier. best way is to start with the sequence and pump the brakes about 10 times. hold pedal down and crack bleeder. then just pump 3 times and on the 3 pump hold. crack the bleeder and shut the bleeder before your helper releases the pedal. do this until there is nothing but fluid coming from the bleeder. keep an eye on the master cylinder making sure its full of fluid at ll times or you will have to start over

Need to bleed brakes on 1981 AMC Eagle 30


Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid, leave the cap off, open bleeder on left front wheel cylinder till fluid begins to come out and close the bleeder. Go to the right front and bleed it, this is gravity bleeding and works fine without a helper to pump the pedal, when fluid starts to come out close bleeder. Now go to the right rear and bleed it the same way. Then lastly, the left rear. Bleed it and you should be done and with a good pedal. If you don't have good pedal, you'll need someone to pump and hold the brake down as you bleed each one from the closest to master cylinder around to the farthest from it in sequence. It's the only way to bleed brakes.

My brakes go to the floor and i need to know the bleed sequence so i can try bleeding the brakes whats the sequence


always start with the back passenger wheel, then back drivers wheel, then front passenger, last front drivers wheel, there should be a bleeder valve on each caliper, probably a 3/8 or 5/16 open end wrench, have someone pump the brakes up tight and hold it, turn the bleeder valve open until the pedal goes to the floor and retighten before they let the pedal go or it will **** air back in, continue doing this until you get a stream of fluid, no bubbles should be in the fluid, dont forget to keep adding a little bit of brake fluid every so often during bleeding

How to bleed brakes on 1997 Saturn


The brake system bleeding procedure differs for ABS and non-ABS vehicles. The following procedure pertains only to non-ABS vehicles. For details on bleeding ABS equipped vehicles, refer to the ABS procedures later in this section.

WARNING Make sure the master cylinder contains clean DOT 3 brake fluid at all times during the procedure.
  1. The master cylinder must be bled first if it is suspected of containing air. Bleed the master cylinder as follows:
    1. Position a container under the master cylinder to catch the brake fluid.
    2. Loosen the left front brake line (front upper port) at the master cylinder and allow the fluid to flow from the front port.
    3. Connect the line and tighten to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm).
    4. Have an assistant depress the brake pedal slowly one time and hold it down, while you loosen the front line to expel air from the master cylinder. Tighten the line, then release the brake pedal. Repeat until all air is removed from the master cylinder.
    5. Tighten the brake line to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm) when finished.
    6. Repeat these steps for the right front brake line (rear upper port) at the master cylinder.
WARNING Do not allow brake fluid to spill on or come in contact with the vehicle' finish, as it will remove the paint. In case of a spill, immediately flush the area with water.
  1. If a single line or fitting was the only hydraulic line disconnected, then only the caliper(s) or wheel cylinder(s) affected by that line must be bled. If the master cylinder required bleeding, then all calipers and wheel cylinders must be bled in the proper sequence:
    1. Right rear
    2. Left front
    3. Left rear
    4. Right front
  2. Bleed the individual calipers or wheel cylinders as follows:
    1. Place a suitable wrench over the bleeder screw and attach a clear plastic hose over the screw end.
    2. Submerge the other end in a transparent container of brake fluid.
    3. Loosen the bleed screw, then have an assistant apply the brake pedal slowly and hold it down. Close the bleed screw, then release the brake pedal. Repeat the sequence until all air is expelled from the caliper or cylinder.
    4. When finished, tighten the bleed screw to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm) for the front, or 66 inch lbs. (7.5 Nm) for the rear.
  3. Check the pedal for a hard feeling with the engine not running. If the pedal is soft, repeat the bleeding procedure until a firm pedal is obtained.

Is there a bleeding sequence for a 1990 Toyota Four Runner? We replaced one front driver side brake line and both calipers and we cannot seem to get it to bleed properly. Thanks


normally, the brakes are bled starting from the furthest brake to the closest with respect to the master brake cylinder. the sequence is : right rear, left rear, right front, left front. pump the brakes until pressure is built up. do this rather slowly. while keeping downward pressure on the pedal, open the bleed screw slowly. the pedal will go to the floor. hold the pedal on the floor and tighten the bleed screw. do this until no air is observed. keep the reservoir. repeat with the rest of the brakes following in sequence
