Having problems with your 1987 Chevrolet El Camino ?
Trying to bleed brake line, no success with pumping brakes. Two people , one pumping brakes the other bleeding. Not getting air or fluid.
It sounds like you may not be doing the process corectly. If you are, then I apologize. Make certain that the bleeder valve is in the closed position. Have another person pump the break peddle much in the same sequence as CPR (if that helps). Upon your command, the other person needs to apply steady pressure to the brake peddle until you tell him to release, and not before. While he is applying pressure, you, open the bleeder valve. At that time, the peddle should go to the flow. Close the bleeder valve BEFORE you tell him to release the pressure. Repeat the process until all four brake calipers have been bled, (meaning that you get a stream of fluid with no air bubbles.Periodically throughout the process, it is important to make certain that you have plenty of fluid in the reservoir. That should do it. If not, I'd like to know. Good luck.
