1995 f 350 ford u haul truck brake bleeding?
ok was wondering i have this f 350 ford u haul truck i own its mainly out of brake fluid but has a tiny bit in it i can just barly stop with it so i was wondering if i put more fluid in it if i have to bleed it out or not? if so how to do so ?
Add fluid, then pump the brakes. Does the brake pedal go down to the floor or feel soft/squishy? Then you have air in the system, and will need to bleed the brakes. There are plenty of YouTube videos on bleeding brakes, even working alone, in addition there are DIY kits available at auto parts stores for bleeding brakes. If you continue to lose brake fluid then you have a leak somewhere. Obviously, do not drive on the roads with low or no brake fluid.
I'd be more than mildly curious about where the brake fluid leaked out from.... The leak might get worse and empty the system while you're driving.
As the above posters have said find and repair the leak first then bleed the system. Unless Ford says otherwise bleed the right rear wheel first, then left rear, then right front, then left front. HTH. - Jim
do i have it running while bleeding one wheel at a time?
No, you just have to pump the brake pedal. If you're working alone they have all sorts of DIY kits that make it a simple task.
That's correct, even with power brakes, the engine must be off while bleeding. HTH. -Jim
