    If you calipers are on upside down, THAT IS A PROBLEM. :) They will never bleed since the air goes to the top of the caliper. I've heard of some of the Wilwood brakes for the Vettes, the bleeders have a small pocket area that traps air and they have to take them off and rotate them to bleed them properly.

    Okay guys brakes are much better now still need to bleed one more time before perfect I think one is seeping where the line goes to the caliper (ive filed all the powdercoat off so it has a smooth mating surface) I touch my finger to it and it’s wet alittle.

    But I was going to test drive it yesterday but once I started it up my afr gauge was reading at 16-18 which is really lean if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Then I talked to the guy who tuned my car before he said it’s cause my maf is in a totally different spot... so with that being said i have to go back to my OBD2 I have power and both grounds are working and I know the data wires are right (because they were wrong the first time) so that leaves the 2 green wires on the top right of the plug I think spots 1 and 2... I just need to know where they go to

    Okay so I have figured out my OBD2 problem whenever I would plug in the scanner one of the relays would click I so I removed all of them one by one with the scanner plugged in to see if it would cut power or do anything but nothing happend so it’s in the fuseblock I’m guessing then I decided to call Lonny and see what he though about running another one of my cut power wires from the bcm so that is what I did and she works just fine now

    My OBD2 reader came with directions that said that my Cobalt would need a separate power. Never understood why.

    Well I got the rear taillights wired up along with the wing taillight but still bleeding the brakes... I let them sit for 4 days while I was at work and even the new bleeders are leaking and the fittings are leaking on 2 of them I over torqued them and I’m sure they are close to snapping or pulling threads I have no idea why they would still be leaking the surfaces are smooth and filed down to bare metal and both copper washers are there this is just wild and very aggravating I’ve went through 8 bottles of brake fluid just bleeding through the system. I’ve got them close to where I’m holding pedal while the car is off but once I’ve started the car the pedal slowly sinks. But I don’t want to keep bleeding them if I have to pull the lines back off maybe I can put PTFE on the copper washers and maybe it will seal?

    You may want to look very closely at the fitting surfaces. There must be a groove or scratch or something in them causing the fluid to leak. The copper washers should seal them up easily but if they are not, it has to be something more than what they can seal. Maybe a crack in the fitting or a bad mating of the tubing to the banjo?

    Are they new copper washers or used ones. Always use new washers.

    They are new. Every time I loosen and then I use new washers

    The billet brake kit I bought for my sandrail actually instructed to use blue loctite at the fittings insted of teflon tape.

    Somewhere I read that brake fluid eats up Teflon tape.

    All I know is I spent an ass load of money on those billet brakes and it took forever to get the air out and stop the fittings from leaking. I used teflon but eventually the manufacturer updated their website and their instructions were to use the blue loctite. Brakes haven’t leaked since but damn I was on the verge of pulling my hair out by how tight I had to turn those fittings to finally stop the leaking.
