I was talking about the proceedure you used.I'll give you mine I use for saturns without abs.I start with the right rear have someone pump the brake pedal up slow and steady ten times then on the tenth time have them hold pressure on the pedal. Then I open up the bleeder screw while there keeping pressure on the pedal till the pedal hits the floor then they hold the pedal to the floor till I close the bleeder.I repeat the steps on the right rear till I have no more air coming out of the bleeder screw and it's just a steady stream of fluid coming out. While making sure the master cylinder stays full I then go to the left rear do the same. Go to the right front do the same then left front do the same that's the way I bleed non abs Saturn brakes works great. You never said if it was abs is it?Also when you changed the brake hose did you replace the copper crush washers on the end of the hose?You should have you reuse those?Let me know.

It's not a abs. And I do the same as you. Padle still go's to the floor. I have been trying for two days now. It was the metal line that broke.

Did you bench bleed the master before you installed it?Also when your bleeding the brake's are you able to get a steady stream of fluid no air out of each bleeder screw?

Yes to frist. When I bleed the line it comes out good. When I do it about 5times. The it stops after about 5 times it will start flowing again.

So the brakes worked good before the line broke?If the line just broke why didn't you just replace line why did you replace the master cylinder too?You can try gravity bleeding it open up the bleeder screw till you get a steady stream of fluid leaking out of each bleeder screw. You could also try pressure bleeding it with a pressure bleeder. Let me know.
