    Air in brake fluid line

    Thanks scn101. Yes I started with RR, which had air appearing but after a while stopped. Then I continued with LR. There the air never stopped. Eventually I gave up and switched to the traditional method. Instead of applying pressure from the master reservoir, I have my wife step on the brake while I open the screw. In that way, I didn't see any air, and finished quickly. That means there was no air in the brake line at all. But what happened when I was doing the one man bleeding, remains a mystery.
  2. I am trying to bleed the brake fluid, and need some help and advice here. First the way I bleed is, fill the reservoir full, hook up a Motive power bleeder with 5 psi pressure, then open the tip to let fluid out. I also refill the reservoir before it runs down so I know no air will go in. I did it with another car ( not Lincoln) with no problem, not seeing a single air bubble coming out from the tip. But it doesn't go well with my 2011 MKZ. There are small air bubbles flowing out continuously. Just I can't believe how much air inside. For a single wheel, I have flushed at least a quart fluid but there is still more. Have I done anything wrong here? Hope some experts can give me a hand. Many thanks.
