Questions & Answers

Are the brakes supposed to weep out brake fluid from the top as you bleed them? The black plastic nipple does between the red cap and the black plastic. ?

When the bottle fills with liquid forced in through the center hose, the black plastic nipple acts as a vent to relieve pressure. As soon as the bottle is half full, I empty it so that no brake fluid gets close to Although I have extensively used this bottle, I have yet to see any fluid seeping through its vents. This should be helpful for you.

What is the function of the check valve?

Unlike a check valve, there is none. It takes a little brake fluid to fill the container slightly above the level of the tube that extends to the bottom of the As you pump the brakes, the brake fluid and not the air will suck up. As a matter of fact, it works quite Make sure your brake fluid is at the right

Is there anything else that prevents air from traveling through the threads of the bleeder screw when the pedal is released?

You might be letting air through the threads of the bleeder screw and brake caliper if they've got a lot of tolerance in between the Make sure not to unscrew the bleeds screw/zerk as much as you can. In general, when you get brake fluid leaks on the threads you can tell if they were cut with an inferior tap on the caliper. Having owned a FJ cruiser for several years, I know that the brake bleed process can be difficult, but I have not experienced any problems with other cars.

Are you interested in the type of hose? If so, what is its ID?

An auto brake nipple for a standard vehicle.

I think this is pretty cool
5/5

One of these has never been used by me I think this is pretty cool. I have never used one of these types of machines before, nor have I used any other type of By opening the bleeder screw and putting the hose on, it is as easy as putting the pedal down. As long as the hose is flexible and seals well, you can snug the bleeder screw back into place before removing it The final step should be done to prevent air from being sucked in. There is a one way check valve version of the one way valve that works perfectly. I'm not sure what anyone would do if there was a one way check valve version that didn't work. The fact that I didn't need to wait for a helper and that I could see the pedal firming up as I moved to a new wheel made bleeding my brakes somewhat enjoyable. It's very fast, much faster than using a helper to do it for you. Probably in 10 minutes, I bled or flushed a full bottle of brake fluid out of all four calipers. This program was a great help to me when doing two vehicles. Make sure you don't overstamp As you pump your foot under the brake pedal or just 3/4 of a stroke at a time, you should begin to pump at the wheel closest to the master cylinder, then work your way up. For example rear passenger, right front, right rear, left front, left front.

The fact that I have to wait this long to get such a great product is ridiculous
5/5

There have been different ways I've attempted to do this in the past, such as those cheap little vacuum kits from the car store, and enlisting the help of unwilling teenagers or spouses, and using various jars, flexible tubing, and no tubing at all.

Bleeding brakes should not pose a problem. It's just as simple to flush fluid, but you have to keep at it for a little In a system that's so simple, you would think there would be little room for improvement. This is incorrect. I like this a lot. In terms of the tube itself, it is silicon, which means it can be mounted and removed easily, and it is sized just right The PVC tubing I had used in the past had been readily available, but silicon is far more versatile. Unfortunately, silicon is relatively opaque, but I was able to clearly see air bubbles inside the tube. Having said that, I could not tell when all the old fluid had been flushed out so easily, because I could not remove the old stuff from the reservoir first, so I had to keep adding new and so there was no really obvious "dirty, new" appearance Initially, it was dark brown, then it faded to yellow, then it became It was a little more difficult to see through the tube as a result. When we try this again, I want to see if there's colored fluid available. I will have a really easy time detecting when a new fluid has been chased out if I keep changing the color continuously. In my testing I emptied the jar between wheels so I could inspect what was coming out of each one. The jar can hold an entire flush, although I did empty it before I examined each one. The fluid is generally translucent, and you can see its color as it passes through. I should feel really bad about myself since the old fluid coming out is dark brown (I'm a bad owner, and I should feel badly about it). Similarly, you can see that the fluid is working its way into the sponge as it mixes in, though it may be hard to tell if it's yellow or white. The silicone tube isn't entirely transparent, so it could be hard to tell. I just unscrewed the lid and peered inside to confirm that I had flushed when I could see that some fluid had been layering in the jar when I unscrewed the lid and peeked in. The tube inside the jar is PVC and quite transparent. That's one benefit of PVC hose - it can withstand high pressures In terms of safety, the built-in check valve performs pretty well and makes it 100% safe for one person There is a bleeding person or a flushing person. It's nice that the valve is located on the Input side (the red nipple), so you can remove the lid while it's attached without letting air inside. The information I found in that article was extremely helpful. Here's a link After you finish using the hose, you simply pop the end onto the black nipples and no spills occur. !Your system has just been shut down There seems to be just enough magnetism in the magnet. As long as I did not let the magnet get completely full, it remained firm. This piece is riveted in, so being careful not to rip the plastic bottle is vital. Every other time I have tried to bleed or flush my brakes it has been a total hassle tracking down one of my lazy teenagers, and when they finally come to help it is the old "ok, hold down, and press a few times, then raise your hand". Using this device made flushing so quick, easy, and enjoyable that I enjoyed it. Yes, I do. Flushing my brake fluid this way was a fun experience for me. As long as you do your own brake work, and get by just fine without such a device, you're fine. It will be nice and easy and you don't realize how nice it will be until you buy it. It is a decision you will not regret. It's the first time I've really enjoyed flushing and bleeding my brakes since using this product.

The best of the bunch - The process of bleeding brakes has been a challenge for me It has a vacuum pump, as well as a big box which can bleed one person at a time
5/5

I have not been able to get any of them to work. With the antilock braking systems in my vehicle and the big box bleeder, the vacuum pump is seriously strained? It will be recycled, let's just say that. Because of the reviews and the fact that it has a built-in check valve, I bought this one. My wife's car's brakes were easily flushed after I used it on four cars without any hassle. There were no issues with any of the vehicles I've used it on. Some of the things that I do are You will see fluid flowing if the lid is opened fully. I'm glad you like it. f) Pump the brakes while keeping the master cylinder full (see example b) Easy.
