    Got my rear disks installed over the week end. When I was bleeding the brakes, everytime the brake pedal was push fluid would shoot up out of the resevoir about ten inches. Looked cool, but was messy as heck.

    I think I have all of the air out of the system, but the pedal is still soft. Is the master cylinder shot? Do I need to have the brakes "power bled"? What the heck is power bleeding?

    Thanks

    When bleeding the brakes, you shouldn't have the lid off the master cylinder while pumping the brake pedal!!!!..........
