  2. So, if you get the air out of the master cylinder like this, you won't have to still bleed the brakes? Does anyone know? Thanks

  3. Can you fix mine please 😊

  4. Thank you sir this video is exactly what I wanted

  5. I fixed my car brake issue/problem based on your "Video: How to fix a brake pedal that sinks…". Great guidance on car maintenance with a fun, creative approach from the God of car technology. I kindly Thank you.

  6. Why does my car feel like its braking when I accelerate?

  7. Hi scotty would it be the same process for a truck?

  8. Hard as a rock, gal told me that before. 😅😅

  9. I don't understand the logic behind this, when you replace the master cylinder not only you bleed the master cylinder but you have to bleed all four bleeder valves on each wheel or there will be much air trapped in the lines from having changed out the master cylinder.

  10. Hey @scottykilmer I have a question , I own a 2001 mazda miata none abs . I’m wanting to purge my master myself . My master cylinder has 3 brake line connections . Would I loosen all 3 when purging ?

  11. Hey Scotty, I just wanted to say thank you for your advice! I was able to put a new master cylinder on my Tahoe today and used your bleeding at the MC trick.. it was a time saver and I didn’t have to take off a single tire to reach the bleeder screws! I’ll bleed like that from here on out, I typically have to do everything by myself. ❤

  12. scotty question for you i have a 1999 gmc jimmy rwd 4.3 v6 and i just replaced all calipers and went to try to bleed them but am getting no fluid out of the rear and barely any out of front and now brake light is on and pedal to the floor when vehicle is on what should i do?

  13. Scotty kilmer i have a 1972 datsun 1200 deluxe my brakes pedal sink but it never loses brake fluid and thhere is no leaks

  14. I change the master cylinder and still the same pedal still sink all the way.

  15. Thank you so much! Been looking for a basic video not about special tools or making your own. Simple, informative and to the point.

  16. Personally I bleed all 4 ends starting with the right rear, left rear, right front and then left front. At the caliper bleeder screw.

  17. Could it be a break booster too?

  18. So what is the problem when you crank the truck up,put your foot on the brake pedal and it sinks to the floor Mr,Kilmer? I followed your instructions to the letter and I still have good hard pedal when off; no brakes when on.
