This is the "old school" way.

Mostly what I deal with are them vehicles with carburetors!

Some of the the newer stuff requires it to be connected with a scan tool to get past that ABS crap!

I have good luck with the "my way" routine, You ain't gonna hurt nuthin' to give it a shot!

I have 2 links for you,

The 1st concerns bench bleeding "On the Vehicle", even if I sorta write in a hillbilly fashion!

The 2nd link is the old timer bleeding technique!

https://www.2carpros.com/questions/1999-ford-explorer-tried-bleeding-brakes-numerous-times-there-still-air-line

I try to hand out any and all information that might help, so sorry 'bout the novels I write!

We also have articles on lots of testing and repair. This is found at the top of this page, to the right of the "Search Box".

Return here with a big ole grin, or we will continue to get you going.
