Um quick question how do I bleed it lol sorry I'm a high school student and I have a mechanics class but my class is a mix of 3rd year students like myself and 1st year so he hasn't taught us much just some off to the side projects like dismantling an engine and replacing it lol

Go to an autoparts place and buy a one man bleeder for $6 and a small bottle of dot 3 for another few dollars...its a straight forward job...check out youtube if you need to see it done first. I love that one man bleeder...does a great job when i use mine

If it's 97 or newer you have ABS unless you have removed and about the e brake now that your brakes are blead you have good pressure in your lines and your e brake may be ajusted to tight. Make when your bleeding them to always start furthest from the master cylinder and work closer
