    Comments about Mityvac Automotive Tune Up and Brake Bleeding Kit:

    Used this to bleed brake and hydraulic clutch fluid (both DOT3). The bleed valves fit directly on the input of the waste canister and fit well on the bleeder valves. I wish they did fit a bit tighter as when they get wet with brake fluid tend to fall off easier. I wish the waste canister was larger so I wouldn't have to stop and empty it so often, but flow rate was good for me (filled in 1-2 minutes each time). I did not successfully get all the air out of the system with this and had to do a manual bleed, but it saved a lot of time flushing out the old brake fluid.
    Lots of tubes and accessories included. The bleeder valve adaptors are both labelled 6mm. Cleans up pretty easily too. I do wish it came with a nice case of some sort for storage instead of just the plastic packaging.

        Purchased specifically for bleeding brakes. Container failed to hold vacuum. Went back manually bleeding. Wasted 30 minutes.

        Works and holds a vacuum, takes a while

          Comments about Mityvac Automotive Tune Up and Brake Bleeding Kit:

          bought to bleed brakes and is not ideal to bleed a system with alot of air in the lines. Holds a good vacuum and would work great to bleed a system that is already in good shape with minimal air.

              A:

              Instructions for bleeding brakes: 1. Park the truck on a level surface. Raise and support the hood of the truck for the duration of this project. View the brake fluid reservoir to check that it is at the "Full" mark. Add brake fluid to the reservoir to obtain a full level to begin this project. Always replace the reservoir cap after each filling. 2. Raise the rear of the 2500 using a 2-ton jack, or a jack with greater capacity. Place jack stands beneath the rear axle housing, on either end. The farther apart you place the jack stands, the lower the truck's center of gravity and greater its stability will be. 3. Lie beneath the rear bumper of the 2500 and slide yourself into position to access one of the bleeder screws, on the back of either rear brake housing. The bleeder screw is a small nipple with a hole through the middle. When released, the bleeder opens and allows air and brake fluid to escape the brake system. Place a drain or catch pan directly beneath the bleeder screw, so that the pan will catch fluid and brake spray. 4. Instruct your assistant to enter the truck. Ask him to pump the brake pedal until the pedal provides solid resistance. If after three pumps the pedal is still going to the floor, instruct your assistant to remove his foot completely from the brake pedal. 5. Open the bleeder screw on the rear of the brake housing 1 1/2 to 2 turns. Instruct your assistant to depress the brake pedal slowly to the floor of the truck. Ask your assistant to say "down" when the pedal is to the floor. Close the bleeder screw firmly, but do not torque the bleeder. Instruct your assistant to pump the brake pedal back up and hold his foot on the pedal. Ask him to say "holding" when the pedal is up. Repeat this step three times or until you have only fluid coming out of the line, rather than air. 6. Check the brake fluid reservoir at the front of the truck after bleeding one side of the truck. Ensure the fluid level is at the "Full" mark. The fluid will be at a slight angle as the rear of the truck is raised. Add the fluid until the middle of the angle aligns with the "Full" mark. Replace the reservoir cap when finished. 7. Repeat Steps 3, 4, and 5 to bleed the second side of the 2500. Use verbal commands like "down" and "holding" to ensure proper communication between you and your assistant. Ensure you complete the bleeding cycle at least three times, or until you hear no air escaping the brake line. The brake pedal should pump up to its full upward position when you have completely bled the system of air. 8. Instruct your assistant to exit the truck. Raise the rear of the 2500 from the jack stands, using your jack. Remove the jack stands from beneath the truck and then lower the truck to the ground. 9. Check the brake fluid reservoir to ensure that it is filled to the "Full" mark. Add fluid as necessary and then replace the reservoir cap. Tips & Warnings: If you bleed both rear sides of the brake system, and the brake pedal still will not pump up completely, then bleed the front brakes as well. Bleed all four brake lines by starting from the passenger rear to the driver's front, then the driver's rear to the passenger front. Called cross bleeding, this process ensures that you remove all air pockets from the brake system. The bleeder screws on the front brakes are located on the upper rear of the brake calipers. Check and fill the reservoir after each bleeding cycle.
