Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Turn on engine, wife pumps brakes several times the holds to floor while I turn screw to bleed. Usually after I get fluid, I close and she releases brake. Do several times but wait 15 seconds in between each attempt.

oh wow so your not getting anything with full pressure at caliper?

No, and nothing in the line going back to master on that front side back.
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

So I would pull the line going straight to the master as see if your getting anything there and that would rule that out if its a master or not

Umm already said I did that. It's not the master cause I get fluid from other brakes
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

did you check the valve that splits off and goes to both calipers? its more so like a splitter block

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Don't have a splitter. They are separate lines and the lines are clear.

Do you know anything about the Silverado 2500 diesel?
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

so if you can trace the low fluid flow to the ABS system, the bphv which is the piece in the middle of the picture I sent could have some debris in it and may need to be cleaned, I would pull that and inspect for any issues, but when reinstalling it will need to be bled by a scanner after doing a primary bleed on the system

that unit controls individual flow to each caliper via a solenoid and by the slightest amount of contamination will cause issues
