i am trying to bleed the brake lines on my 2000 silverado and it doesnt seem to be working. I just replaced every steel brake line on the truck because they were very rusty and one already broke.

Hello! Welcome to justanswer!


It has to be "pressure blead out" with a special tool and a scan tool to get the air out of the ABS unit. Have a shop or Dealer do it. Only 1 hour charge. Otherwise you will put about 50 bucks in brake fluid through it and have no good results.

also is there any way I put the lines back into the wrong spot on the abs unit? these were prebent lines I ordered on line, I had to tweek them a little bit to make them go into the abs but they all seemed to aim at certain wholes
Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.
No, if they were hooked up wrong, you would still get a firm pedal.....
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
so your saying there is no wrong hole for any of the lines
Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.

No, not at all but if the lines are hooked up, the pedal will be firm.



If the lines are wrong, the aBS wont work right.
