  1. Apply the brakes several times with the ignition OFF in order to relieve the brake vacuum reserve.
  2. Fill the master cylinder reservoirs with DOT 3 motor vehicle brake fluid.
  3. Maintain the fluid level during bleeding.
    1. If the brake pressure modulator valve of the antilock brake system is replaced or if you suspect that air is trapped inside, bleed the brake pressure modulator valve next.
    2. Follow this sequence if it is necessary to bleed all four wheels:
    6.1. Right rear wheel cylinder or caliper. 6.2. Left rear wheel cylinder or caliper. 6.3. Right front wheel caliper. 6.4. Left front wheel caliper.
    7.1. Place the hex end of the wrench over the wheel cylinder bleeder valve. 7.2. Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a clear container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
    8.1. Place the proper size hex end of the wrench over the caliper bleeder valve. 8.2. Place a clear tube over the caliper bleeder valve. 8.3. Immerse the opposite end of the hose into a clear container partially filled with clean brake fluid.
    1. Slowly apply the brake pedal one time and hold.
    2. Loosen the bleeder valve in order to purge the air from the wheel cylinder or caliper.
    3. Tighten the bleeder valve and slowly release the brake pedal.
    4. Wait 15 seconds. Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions.
    5. Repeat this sequence, including the 1 5-second wait, until all air is purged from the wheel cylinder or caliper. Tighten the bleeder valve to 7 Nm (62 inch lbs.).
    6. Repeat steps 7-13 at each wheel until the brake system is bled.
    7. Clean any brake fluid off the vehicle that may have gotten on it during the bleeding procedure.
    8. Inspect the brake pedal for sponginess, and inspect the brake warning lamp for an indication of unbalanced pressure. Repeat the bleeding procedure in order to correct either of these conditions.
    9. Fill the master cylinder reservoir to the proper level.

Start from right rear, then, left rear, right front, left front. Fill master cylinder. Have helper sit in car, have helper hold brake pedal down. open bleed screw. fluid and air comes out. close screw. release brake pedal. Continue until no air comes out. Move to next wheel. Keep an eye on master cylinder fluid level after each wheel.

have one person in the blazer pumping the brake pedal and then hold to the floor, crack the bleeder then tighten, release pedal, repeat till all air is out one side at a time, if this does not work then your ABS unit is bad witch if u follow your lines from your master cylinder u will find a black box with a motor on it, or the master cylinder itself is bad, it also can cause u to have no pedal, replace the master cylinder first, most likely cheaper.

Can you bleed the brakes system from the top of the brake line


Can you bleed the brakes system from the top of the brake line Rick, No! I will post links to proper bleeding procedures, if you can not do it this way, take it in to a qualified shop. Some vehicles need to use a scan tool during the bleeding process to cycle the pump and valves.

After bleeding brakes still have spongy brakes


you still have some air in the lines. go back thru the bleed process again if that doesn't work, get to a power brake bleeder.(amazon about$70) that is a system that puts pressure on top of mc to push fluid thru the system as you open bleed screws. did you know you can adjust brakes by holding down lock button and pumping emergency brake handle. good luck

Replaced brake line on 1999 blazer bleed brakes still goes to floor


you need to start at the farthest rear and bleed it make sure someone is pumping and holding brake while doing this .. then move to next farthest .. then pass front and then driver side until the whole system has gotten air out.. keep your brake master cylinder full all the time..

Bled brakes on my 1999 chevy blazer still goes to floor


this is an indication that there is still air in the system and the bleeding process was inefficient. Bleed the lines at the master cylinder first by loosening off the lines and holding the pedal down until the lines are retightened. Then starting at the longest line first bleed the system finishing at the shortest line . Keep the fluid level in the reservoir topped up at all times.

Brake bleeding sequence for 1995 buick


Most cars are done the same way:
1: Farthest brake from the master cylinder (rear)2: Opposite side from the first brake.3: Farthest from the master cylinder on the front.4: Remaining brake.
BTW: I would advice using the traditional method of using a clear bottle with some fluid in the bottom and a clear hose running out of the fluid, through the bottle top and which can connect to the bleed nipple. When bleeding fluid, make sure the fluid in both the master cylinder and to the bottle is clean before closing off the bleed nipple. Then pump the brake after bleeding each brake and feel for any softness. If you feel softness after bleeding any particular brake, then you will know that you just introduced air into that brake line, and will need to bleed again.NEVER allow your master cylinder to become totally empty whilst bleeding as this will mean you have to bleed all air out of the total system and start again from scratch. This can be a huge pain!
