    Yes

    The only time it's reversed is when you're chasing a bubble

    I found the best method for one person. Take 4 mason jars and 4 hoses that fit airtight onto the bleeder, undo them all and stick them in the mason jar full of brake fluid.(keeps reverse air from going in) Pump the everliving piss outta them for like 5 minutes and make sure you dont run out of fluid in your master cylinder. Its the quickest way with just one person.

    one thing that i forgot to do was to bleed the abs. my abs light is still on but i forgot that when i drained the master cylinder reservoir of fluid that the first thing i had to do was bleed the abs modulator and then bleed the wheels.

    eh busted knuckles.

    i bled the abs modulator and then the wheels in proper order and the pedal was nice and firm and the abs light remained on. that was about a week ago.

    tonite i was able to finish up the car...got the wheels back on and got the car back on the ground. hit the brake to put the car in gear and the pedal went all the way to the ground just like it did before i did the brake job. and...the abs light has magically turned off.

    i'm so pissed right now that i'm about half an inch from taking the car down to a shop.
