Interesting because I started trying to introduce brake fluid to my van with the vacuum pump I bought at one wheel and I couldn't get air bubbles to stop flowing. Put some grease around the bleeder to keep air from coming in through the threads and still couldn't get the all the air out. Although I also tried the manual way and still air bubbles flowed. This is why I posted my question. Now for the next issue, since I replaced all the lines, including ones to and from the ABS module, I have read air could be in the ABS module and a ABS scanner would be needed to "cycle" that is electronically set it into the proper position internally, in order to be bled. Do you know if these can be rented? Called all my local auto parts stores and can't find some one to rent them. They are quite expensive.
