How To Bleed Your Vehicle's Brakes. How To Flush Your Car's Brake Fluid.
Bleeding your brakes will help keep your brakes firm, maintaining hydraulic pressure efficiency. As time passes, brake fluid takes on foreign materials/water, resulting in compressible air bubbles getting into the lines. Since brake fluid (hydraulic fluid) should be incompressible, the efficiency of your brakes may be compromised. You may also want to suck out some of the gunk from the bottom of the master cylinder. Watch the min level, or you may have to start from the beginning again. Teflon tape over the threads will help eliminate air bubbles coming into the tube as you vacuum.
Bleed your brakes about every 45,000 miles / 72,000 km / 3 years, or if you change your brake calipers. Check your vehicle's service manual for specifics.
