I know this is a month old thread, but just did mine today. I have had a Motive power bleeder (Motive Products #1 Selling DIY Brake Bleeder
) for YEARS (bought it for a Mustang that I no longer own), and it worked great. It's one of the systems that you fill with brake fluid, put the cap on your brake reservoir, and pump it up to 15 psi or so.
Then, you just open up the bleeder valves at each brake caliper, and let the pressure push it the old with the new. Very easy, neat, and clean.
I ended up using a turkey baster-type of thing to remove as much brake fluid out of the reservoir as I could, then filled it up with clean fluid. Then, I hooked up the power bleeder, put brake fluid in it (they suggest two quarts), and pumped it up to 15 psi or so. Then, I just went around (farthest away first, of course), and opened up each valve until the fluid came out clear.
It was DIRTY, for sure. The brakes feel a lot better now, tighter, and firmer. It was a very good return for a half hour's work.
In restrospect, I should have gotten three bottles of the Prestone synthetic DOT3, rather than two. I ended up using almost an entire bottle in the reservoir, so I was kind of stressing out as I was doing it, and had to keep going back and checking how much I had left. I just made it with the one bottle that I had left after the initial fill.
