Question about 1991 Chevrolet S-10

Bleeding the brakes on a 91 Chevy S10 2wd

We recently replaced the line going to the rear brakes. But I don't know how to bleed the brakes. I have pumped them several times but I still don't get a lot of pressure. I've heard the term bleeder valves. Not sure where that is. Please help

    The "greese" fittings are there but they are covered with a rubber cap. Is this the same thing you are talking about. I doesn't have any thing to unscrew.

    I have bled each of the brakes but didn't notice any air coming out. As we were doing this I noticed as I pumped the brakes they got harder. But then when I took it for a test drive and they do work but it seems that they are going down as far as the clutch. Does anyone know of anything else I could try. I was bleeding them with the engine running and with the engine off. It seemed to work better when it was running.

    Thanks for any info

If you look on the inside of the wheel you will see what looks like greese fittings you need to have somebody pump and hold the brakies and then you need to slowly crack it open by unscrewing it untill you get air then wait till it stops t5hen tighten it and pump the brakes again and do this again dont let the brake fluid run out of the resivore ok pretty soon you will feel the brake pedle start to get hard then do this a couple of more times and then you will be done ok best regardss mike

AFTER BLEEDING THE MASTER CYLINDER ON THE BENCH, DID YOU BLEED IT IN THE CAR, IF NOT, OPEN THE LINE AT THE MASTER 3/4 TURN OFF, HAVE SOMEONE STEM ON THE BRAKES, DO IT SEVERAL TIMES UNTIL YOU SEE FLUID ON BOTH LINE NO AIR COMES OUT, THEN WITH THE KEY ON START FROM THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL , SOMEONE PUMPS AND HOLDS THE BRAKES AND YOU OPEN THE BLEEDER 3/4 TURN, THEN LEFT REAR , THEN RIGHT FRONT AND LAST LEFT FRONT, IF NO PRESSURE AFTER OPENING 4 OR 5 TIMES, OPEN THE SYSTEM BY THE BRAKE HOSE, BEFORE THE CALIPER, IF PRESURE THERE REPLACE THE HOSES. 14 YR OLD HOSES MAY BE INTERNALLY CRACKED. NOT ALLOWING FLUID TO GO THRU.

Changed rear brake lines


-Double check. No leaking....?
-If not leaking. When you bleed it. you might need some one to help you pump the brake.
-Make sure Pump the brake (Hole down still)/Now open or release the fluid and Closed BEFORE release the brake pedal. Repeat this until no bubble. And make sure the fluid reservoir never empty to Bottom.
You should be good to go.

Sound like you either have air in the system or a leak. Make sure all the connections are tight on the new calipers. clean off all the connections and blessed screws with brake cleaner. Then have your partner press on the brake pedal while you look for leaks. Reblead the entire system again starting at the right rear, than the left rear, than the right front, and finally the left front. Continue bleeding at each wheel until no air comes out. make sure you don,t let the master cylinder go dry. It will take several pedal pumps for the caliper pistons to take up the gap in between the pads and rotors. I assume you have a helper pushing on the brake pedal during the bedding process?

it sounds like there is still air in the brake system that has not been removed.you don`t say if you replaced the brake pads and shoes(in which case you shouldn`t need to bleed)or you replaced a brake line(s) or wheel cylinder or caliper.you will have to keep bleeding the brakes all 4 wheels(trucks don`t use bi-directional braking meaning right rear brakes with left front and so on).bleed both rear brakes then bleed both front brakes,was this problem there before you replaced the brakes(soft pedal noticed) and this is why you changed the brakes or the pedal was soft and the brakes needed changing.its possible that the master cylinder has an internal leak and may need replacing.

try bleeding the master cylinder at the lines first as it indicates that there is still air in the pistons
loosen one line at a time and gently apply the brakes until any air bubbles come out tighten the line before releasing the brake pedal
do it for the other line and then bleed all the brakes starting at the longest line first and ending at the shortest line

The brake lines ruptured above the gas tank, i replaced them..


Bleed the master cylinder and then rebleed the brakes. If you are still getting a spongy pedal after this then your master cylinder is bad.
