How to Bleed the Brake Fluid in a Chevy Silverado

If you have changed a brake line, brake master cylinder or caliper in your Chevy Silverado, then chances are you have introduced air into the brake system. Air in the brake system causes a mushy brake pedal and an increased braking time that can lead to an accident. The reason for this is because air is compressible while brake fluid isn’t, which makes it a good candidate for transferring energy from one section of the brake system to another. Bleeding the brake fluid will ensure that your Chevy Silverado is safe to drive.

Step 1

Jack up the Silverado and place it on jack stands.
