BLEEDING BRAKES

1996 Mercury Sable

Brakes problem
1996 Mercury Sable V6 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 260000 miles

For some reason when I bleed my brakes I keep getting air bubbles from the left wheels( front and back) The right wheels are fine. Does anyone know why this is happening and what should I do.

At some point in the process, you may have run the master out of fluid, if air is only on the left side, it's now in both halves of the diagonal brake system.
You left front and right rear are paired on one master port, while the right front and left rear are paired on the other. Make sure the master is full then open the front bleeders, let them drip for a while, make sure the master does not run dry, then do the same for the rear, after you get all fluid this way close bleeders and see how the pedal is.
