RC, the bleeder screws are 8mm/5/16". The screws holding the rear wheel cylinders (if drums) on may be a 10mm hex head. I think all the bleeders on the neon are the same size, but if the fronts are larger, they are 10mm, or possibly 3/8", which could depend if they are aftermarket calipers or oem.
Most of the fuel lines I've seen are rated very poorly for brake fluid, and vice versa. The exception would be PTFE (Teflon) tubing. That would work for both fuel and brake, i believe. Vinyl pretty much works for nothing except water.
Really, can you use a Mityvac to bleed brakes?
Apart from that, what tool is used to bleed brakes?
How do you get air out of brakes without bleeding?
How to Get the Air Out of Brake Lines
Step 1: Find the bleeder. A screw and hose are located under the brake system and will be used to bleed the brake fluid. ...
p>The new Tygon 2375 tubing replaces the old 2075 tubing. This tubing is used for non-pressurized brake fluid connections, ie. conencting your remote fluid reservoir (brake or clutch) to your master cylinder or to delete the reservoir all together.
In a lot of cases vacuum bleeding can be just as effective as pressure bleeding the brake system. ... The L-shaped universal adapters should fit snugly over the brake bleeding fitting in order to seal properly.
Brakes can be bled by either by a two-person operation or by a single person. The typical process for a two-man brake bleed is by having one person sit in the driver's seat, while depressing the brake pedal multiple times and holding.
The master- cylinder cap should be removed during brake bleeding. The correct sequence of bleeds must be followed. Some cars require a different order than others, so you bleed the brake furthest away from the master cylinder.
If air gets into the brake lines, it can prevent brake fluid from flowing properly, causing the brake pedal to feel spongy or soft. If the brakes are soft or spongy, this is a good time to change or flush the brake fluid. Flushing the brake fluid, commonly called bleeding the brakes, gets rid of the air.
The OEMTOOLS 25136 One Man Brake Bleeder & Vacuum Pump Test Kit is an example of a vacuum brake bleeder. It is simple, affordable, and generally very reliable. The only issue with this type of product is that you need to continuously check the reservoir to ensure no air is pulled into the system.
In general, whenever you are bleeding an ABS-equipped vehicle you can do so exactly as you would any other vehicle - stroke the pedal to pressurize the system, open a bleeder, close the same bleeder, and repeat. This does not change whether you are pressure-bleeding, vacuum-bleeding, or manual-bleeding.
It won't get better on its own, and it could get worse – eventually, a bunch of small air bubbles in the line will join together to become one big, dangerous bubble. So your brakes won't have their normal pressure – and they could fail entirely, McGraw says.
No, they cannot. You have five options if you want to get your brakes functioning as they should. You can opt for any of these manual methods, but the brakes won't bleed themselves without you taking any action.
You Have Air in the Brake Lines One of the main reasons why your brake pedal may become soft is because you have air in your brake lines. ... As such, when air is in your brake lines, your brake pedal can be pushed all the way down to the ground due to the lack of force.
The master cylinder is a hydraulic pump. As you pump the pedal, it forces the brake fluid into the calipers/wheel cylinders (or clutch bearing for a clutch master cylinder). ... You can bleed it in the car, but it takes longer and requires two people- one to watch for bubbles and one to push the brake pedal.
Should the car be on when bleeding brakes? If you want to force the brake fluid out using the car's brake pedal, the car needs to be on with the engine running. Otherwise, you can do it without having to start the engine.
Many vintage cars can benefit from a “Gravity Bleed” brake fluid bleeding method. It's easy, generally takes less than 30 minutes and can be accomplished without an assistant for about $10-15 in equipment. The proper open-end wrench for your bleed valve (common are M7, M9 and M10).
3557). It is a direct replacement for the hose supplied with Tilton Universal Master Cylinder Kits. Note: Do not be tempted to use rubber fuel hose! Typical rubber fuel hose is not compatible with automotive brake fluid.
