The car has double master cylinder system and its is diagonal brake system. Front right+rear left, front left+rear right. On the front -disk brakes and on the rear-drum brakes.
i have question that related to the emptying of the brake fluid before adding new fluid.
1)i begin(beginning with the front wheel as the manual said) to empty the old brake fluid with an assistant that push and release the brake pedal while I open and close the bleed nut until there is a moment, that the fluid stop to get out(in the resevoir, you can see, that one part of it is empty). After that I do the same to the other front wheel, till the fluid stop get out and the resevoir got empty.(As I said, it is diagonal system)at this moment, is it mean that all the old brake fluid that was in the system included all the lines to the all wheels from the master cylinder gotout completely?Is it mean that emptying the fluid at one front wheel, also take out the fluid from the diagonal rear wheel line?
(because when I continue to the rear wheels, it seems that no more fluid got out.)
or the lines, after the master cylinder, are still have brake fluid, only that the master cylinder can't push the fluid out(maybe air that been compressed?) Because the resevoir is empty?And is it only make me think that all the fluid got out?
Please, I do not look for advise how to do the job.I would like, only, to get answer to those specific questions and this situation.
thank in advance
After you add new fluid you will continute to pumpthe brake pedal and open and close the bleeder screw until
you can see new clean brake fluid flowing from each bleeder screw.

Again, please, I would like to get an answer to my specific questions(as I first mention)i would like NOT to get advises about the bleeding process and ect.(I know what to do next, and I done it many times)my main question was". At this moment, is it mean that all the old brake fluid that was in the system included in all the lines that go to the all wheels from the master cylinder gotout completely?Is it mean that emptying the fluid at one front wheel, also take out the fluid from the diagonal rear wheel line."
thank in advance.

I replaced rear wheel cylinder which was leaking and the major problem of spongy brake. And replaced master cylinder also. But old master cylinder does work normally. Dealer loosen 4 wheel nuts, transection oil pan nuts (all 12 nuts) that cause oil leak from pan, and malfunction A/C cause refrigerant leaking from low pressure port. Before go to the shop l got inspection Honda dealer, and have a trip to Canada, and air conditioning worked great. But now after the event in this shop, A/C does not work effectively. I wiped off green liquid leaking trace on the low pressure port several days ago, but found a new leak in the port. I have never touched A/C system since there was no any problem since 2003 bought new car, and have never filled the green dye.
If new Pontiac Montana car originally filled with green indicator dye at factory?
I don't know if there additional unknown problem caused by the shop.
I have to pay detail inspection in other shop. I have to file complain against shop at ncdoj. Gov.
Thanks for your comment and help!

Yes. Changing the brake fluid (also called flushing the brake system) is accomplished by bleeding all of the fluid from a front wheel and then the diagonal rear wheel (then repeat the process on the other two wheels). I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if it does.
