So, I know people have posted about "flushing" the fluid but I still have questions. Maybe I'm just being overly-picky (it's OK to tell me if so).
Anyway, I don't think a flush has ever been done. EVER. I've added maybe a pint's worth in the 12 years I've owned the car.
I want to do a full flush and then put the SS-lines (bought them 3 years ago with SS Brakes front kit!) on all around. I'm going to replace my rear calipers too since the pistons are sticking (also factory installed!). So I want to make sure the fluid is as clean as I can get it.
So, I'm thinking of the following.
New fluid in a pressure tank (see: http://www.jegs.com/i/Motive+Product...00101/10002/-1
) I bought from Jegs back when I got the brake kit. I was told that anything below 10psi is OK. The tanks hose attaches directly to the reservoir "intake" holes. That way I don't have to worry about checking the level or pump the brake.
So, I connect the tank, push the brake pedal half-way and block it. Then I open the front-left bleeder till clear. Next front-right, then back-left, then back-right. When all is clear, I'm done.
I was told using the pressure tank will make sure all the fluid in the master cylinder is replaced.
Then when all that's done, I replace the factory lines with the new SS lines (5-piece), and at the same time install the calipers, etc. and bleed the air out.
So, am I being too finicky?
