    brake fluid amount

    any one how much brake fluid you will go through, looking to change all fluid on sunday its on a coupe turbs z20let cheers also vauxhall told me that its easy to flip the seals in the master cylinder on these cars if you bleed it through pumping the brakes and should use a sort of pressue system like eazibleed and its much easier is this true or a load of BS

    The eazibleed is very good if your by yourself, and easy to use, i use mine all the time when messing with brakes,
    But the old fashioned way is just as good, needs two people obviously,
    I have never heard of "flip the seals"
    I presume they mean ruin the seals, and i very much doubt it,
    Dot4 brake fluid is only about £4 a litre, bleed the lot through alternate lines equal amount ie quart ltr each line, starting from the furthest away alternate lines,
    cleans the whole old stuff out
