Brake Bleeding


Ranger

Recommended Posts

I bled my wifes brakes last week because it has 104K and figured it was about due to get fresh fluid through out the system based on what I have read on this site. The '96 Pontiac factory shop manual said the sequence should be RR, LR, RF, LF. Basically farthest from the master cylinder first working your way to the nearest. Today I was going through my Cadillac factory manual as I am contimplating doing the Caddy also soon. To my surprise, the Cadillac manual sequence is just the opposite, LF, RF, LR, RR. Which one is correct, or does it not really matter? Both cars have ABS.

When I bleed (actually total flushed) mine a couple of weeks ago, I didn't follow any particular order, although I did look in the manual and saw the same sequence you outlined.

The brakes are fine after the flushing - no spongy feel etc. - same feel as previous. I think that if there is no air in your system to begin with, order sequence really doesn't matter much. You can go by the book if you want to be safe, but it all worked fine for me.

gc caddy,

That's kinda my thinking also. There was not air in the system. I just wanted to flush the system to get clean fresh fluid into it.

Yea, that stuff looked more like motor oil than brake fluid, that's why I want to do the Caddy too. It's looking a little brown as well. I don't know what makes it change color. It's not like it is subjected to dirt or combustion.
