So I install SS lines all around and I guess the brake reservoir had gotten a little low. Well upon bleeding the brakes right after install, the pedal would not hold pressure after each bleed. Kept dropping to the floor on the first pump. I must have bled 10 times all around (3 times each brake too). I did the right order too RF-LR-RR-LF. And I DO know how to correctly bleed with the other person in the car.
So the next day I go at it again. This time I decide to bleed the master cylinder. It's pumping out all fluid after the 3rd push in the pedal so I put the lines back in. Then bleed the brakes another 10 times (3 each brake) Now I am out of fluid (3 bottles) and I'm stumped and a bit pissed too. Upon driving now the pedal drops to the floor on first push...no brakes. If i pump it many times, then push down, I come to a stop only when the pedal is at the floor.
Here are a few things I noticed while bleeding...
-The ABS unit makes allot of air sounds when the pedal is pumped.
-There are absolutely no leaks in the brake system. I am sure of that.
-The left rear calliper makes a faint clicking sound when the pedal is pumped.
-When I was bleeding the front brakes, I was always getting massive amounts of air at first, then straight fluid. The rears weren't that bad. When it was time for a front one again, same results every time.
-I hear no hissing from any of the SS lines indicating air is getting in
...also please be aware I have done an extensive search on this forum for brake bleeding.
PLEASE SOMEONE HELP! I am stumped and without a vehicle!
...oh and if someone can tell me if the mityvac can help solve my problem I would appreciate cause I bought one, but just would up doing it the old fashioned way.
