Asked by Aug 20, 2010 at 08:58 AM about the Chevrolet Chevy Van

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Replace the break line from the distribution module under the fan by drivers seat and now cannot get any fluid thru the line. Using a vaccum pump or just pressing the pedal with the engine off or on. What do I need to do?? Bleaders are not plugged.

Just leave the bleeders open a little and let gravity bleed the air. Don't let all the brake fluid leak out but over night was all it took to get the fluid into the lines and could bleed at the cylinders.
