    I replaced the proportioning valve on my Jimmy. I seem to be having trouble getting all the air out of the system. I tried bleeding a couple of times, but the brakes are still not working properly. Any suggestions? Thanks

    best way to get air out of a proportioning valve is by power bleeding. take it up to the local brake joint and pay the 40 bucks.

    I use a vaccum bleeder. You can pick one up at the local auto place for about $25.
