Used mine a couple of weeks ago for the first time.. READ the instructions good. Check for leaks on that bleeder like it says. I ended up with a leak at the pressure guage. Didn't see it till I already was connected and had fluid in the container and under pressure. Had to take time to fix that. I pumped to about 18 to 20 lbs not being sure if I should go higher or not. Went to the right rear caliper and started bleeding, noticed the fluid coming out ok than slowed to a trickle it looked like it was not even moving. But in the end the old dirty fluid changed to clean fluid and continued on to the rest of the calipers and I ended up happy with clean fluid and NO brake pedal problems. Next year, if not sooner,it will be much easier.
