    They sell self bleeder kits at crappy tire. It's just a sealed bottle with a hose so you just bleed into that and no air goes back in.

    Check out Princess auto, I grabbed a Vacuum bleeder kit a few years back for cheap. But Having a buddy help you out is priceless, especially when the fluid sprays dem in the face. Remember never mix Dot 3 and Dot 4 together.

    i thought 3 and 4 were okay. it's mixing 3/4 with 5 that's bad since 5 is silicone base vs glycol.
