    could i use an auxillary washer fluid pump to make a powerbleeder for my breaks with the pump and an old nc cap?
    do you think the fluid is to weak or there is enough pressure?

    thanks

    <font color="green"> It would be easier to make one out of a regular old heavy plastic water bottle like the ones used for backpacking, a Nalgene or something similar. Drill a hole in it and thread in a fitting to pressurize it with an air compressor. Or use a garden sprayer, the kind that you pump up to build pressure. Do a search on google for "home made power bleeder", you'll find lots of plans to make your own.

    Here's one simple one using the bottle - http://p-car.com/diy/bleeder/&lt;/font

    And another using a garden sprayer - http://w3.one.net/~rapieper/CheapassPressureBleeder/
