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

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.

Still cant get a brake pedal.. been bleeding the lines but not getting much out of them. replaced master cylinder, still no pedal. has all new lines also


you may have to run the motor as you bleed the brakes so the abs hydraulic unit can purge any air that might be caught within the unit itself.did you bench bleed the master cylinder before installing it on the car.this can save time and reduce the possible chance of air entering the system.make sure you don`t allow the master cylinder to run low on brake fluid.i also assume that you are bleeding the brakes properly.Left front brake works with Right rear brake and Right front brake works with Left rear brake.this is how the brakes should be bleed.

Bleeding brakes 2000 suburban wsith ab


Why were the brake lines replaced?

Sounds like the mastercylinder may have run dry. You have to bench bleed the master and then DO NOT allow fluid to run low, while bleeding brakes...

if master cylinder runs low on fluid and air gets in, almost impossible to bleed with out releasing the lines and bleed master it self.

Brake bleeding


if you didn't bleed the lines after putting the master in. then there is a good chance there is air in the lines now. may go through a quart of brake fluid before all the air is out. remember to start at r-rear/ l-rear/ r-front/ l-front last.will take some time. don't forget to adjust the rear brake while your there to help with the pedal
