yes you have to turn the ignition on then apply steady pressure to the pedal (not pump) bleed right rear and then left rear.

turn ignition off and pump brakes 20-30 times

then turn ignittion back on and do right front and right left

then you're done

i'm also having an issue with my 91 s-10. i replaced lines from the master cylinder and both rear brakes, now i can't get a pedal. i've tried the ignition on bleed rears turn off pump 30 times turn on bleed front method, tried the standard pump and hold while bleeding rr, lr, rf, lf, tried pulling the brake fuse, tried using a vacuum pump to get fluid to the rear. nothing seems to work. i was told that the abs system will shut down once it senses a pressure loss and the only way to turn it back on is to have the vehicle computer hooked up to a scan tool. someone else says that's bull because the system isso simple that's not required and standard bleeding procedure should work. the weird thing is there doesn't seem to be air coming out of the bleeders, only fluid, yet i still can't get a firm pedal. wtf? can anyone out there help me solve this? i can't afford to take it to a shop and pay 60 bux an hour for labor.

can anyone help me with how to bleed the hydraulic

clutch on a 1995 chevy ss

For Gary: Removing the ABS hydraulic unit line, will add air into the ABS system, which make it much more difficult to bleed the brakes. Typically you would need a scan tool, to cycle the ABS solenoids, and purge the air. If you have a working brake pedal, you could drive the vehicle and apply a few hard stops to activate the ABS. This will release the air in the ABS circuit, into the conventional brake circuit. You can then re-bleed the brakes using normal brake bleeding procedures. This is not an ideal procedure (compared to using a scan tool, and it might take repeating this a few times, but you should be able to get a good pedal. If nothing, it is at least a good way to flush ABS brakes. If you are looking for a good brake bleeder tool, to allow you to do all this bleeding by yourself, then you should check out the Speedi-Bleed Brake Bleeder Tool I have been doing auto repairs for over 25 years, and it is by far the best brake bleeding tool I have ever used.

1. Add brake fluid to the Motive Power Brake Bleeder tank.

2. Firmly connect the supplied adapter to brake master cylinder and pump the Motive Power Brake Bleeder to pressurize.

3. Starting with the furthest away brake bleeder valve (typically on the rear of the vehicle), open brake bleeder valve and purge the air and old brake fluid from your brake system.

I put all new brakes on my 95 s-10! Everything front and back! All new! Blew a line when bleeding! Fixed that! Then Re-bled! When I drive it after about 40 mph pedal gets real hard! I push it down with all I have and then it makes a funny sound and right front brake applies pulling me to right abruptly! When ABS light is on brakes seem to be fine till get up about 40 mph! Any ideas?
