With a new one it sometimes take several bleedings to get all the air out. Make sure to keep res full. Pump up brake pedal. Hold pedal down. Open bleeder close bleeder release brake pedal and start all over again. Make sure not to release brake pedal until bleeder is closed.

I didn't look at the question thinking they didn't know enough to pump the pedal and hold it - repeat until the fluid runs out.that is what bleeding the brakes is. I assumed they knew how to bleed the brakes. I just was curious how you could bleed breaks and have them not bleed.Something I have used for years now is a cheap vacuum pump to suck out the air through the bleeder.

It sure does and the pump was $25 and the hose (one that would fit tight over the bleeder) was a few dollars
