    By a mighty vac at AutoZone for like $30 and stick something to hold down the clutch pedal while you stick the vac pump on the reservoir and reverse bleed the system until you get no bubbles - fyi work your way from 10 psi - 20 psi until there are no bubbles

    Hey guys,

    I understand the concept of bleeding, but where are you looking for bubbles? You're providing positive pressure at the master resevoir, not vacuum, right? Then don't you just open the bleed valve (that you can't freakin see) on the top of the transmission and let the fluid flow out? Where is the fluid coming out of that you can affix a tube to and see bubbles?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    When the fluid is coming out of the bleeder screw look for air bubbles in the plastic hose that the fluid is traveling in. You'll NEVER get the air all out gravity bleeding like what your referring to.
    Good Luck.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    Do you mean that you are actually able to get a tube over the bleeder screw, or do you mean the tube attached to the resevoir?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    You push a clear hose thats attached to the vac. pump over the bleeder screw nipple. And pump away until NO more air bubbles. Have someone elese topping off with fluid so you don't suck dry and make even more work for yourself.

    So that's the type of bleeding I'm used to (from motorcycle brakes), but I thought the discussion here involved using the pump to create positive pressure at the master resevoir. When you say the bleeder valve nipple, you mean the guy on the top of the bell housing above the line from the master cylinder, right?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Yes it looks just like the bleeder screw on the calipers.
