If they do I will revise this review.

The plastic receiver does not seal well, nor do the plastic hoses and valves.

Purchased this to bleed the brakes on my F-150. Had to go back and buy the auto refill kit to make the job easier to do. The refill kit should be included in the original kit.
Couple of hints, make sure that you have gotten a good seal on the small fill bottle, first time had a bad fit and was losing vacuum. Heard the leak, opened the top, resealed, much better vacuum.
Next time will follow Popular Mechanics advice and use kit to suck out as much fluid from the brake reservoir before starting. Would have made the job go faster.
Also, when opening the brake bleed valve, only crack open till fluid starts to flow; any more than that you are just sucking air from around the threads on the bleeder valve.
For something made in China, not all that bad, but wish the country of manufacture had been included on the web page description, probably would have bought something else had I known.

I have used this on 5 honda goldwings bleeding and flushing the brakes and clutch systems. It works really will for what it costs. You do have to be careful not to let the cup overfill or it will get inside the pump and guage. Don't has me how I know. It comes apart really easy for cleaning if this happens. Just use some soap and water to clean it up. I used a little dab of vasoline on the o rings inside to make the pump work smoother.

I never feel compelled to leave a review, but I'm going to make an exception. Used to change brake and clutch fluid in my ZZR1200. Device does have a learning curve, which ended after I did my clutch fluid. Changed both front and rear brake fluid in 35 mins. I'm only giving 3 starts because like someone else said, with a few tweeks this could be a really good kit. Use teflon tape to get a seal on the bleeding nipple. I little bit of silicone goes a long way in helping to seal the attachments to the hoses. I didn't need to use silicone on the catch can, but did have to readjust a few times to get a seal. Just hook everything up and make sure you can hold a vacuum before you open the bleed valve. The only other issue was getting the hose right so the catch can would stand upright. Easy tweek that took a second to find the right angle. For the price, you can't really complain about the few tweeks that it will take. Going to change the brake and clutch fluid in my car today so I'll post an update if my feelings change.

I had the same problem as others with a poor seal at the jar. A thin o-ring on the lid would fix that. I resorted to gobbing silicone dialectric grease on the seal each jar full. The hose that came with it was kinked, which got in the way. Strange that an otherwise good item could be far better with a couple of simple changes. Otherwise a good device.

The plastic is high quality, the seals are silicone lubricated, the gauge does not bounce nor is dampened with slow response, and you will find the same model sold to science laboratories. I did not buy it to bleed brakes! I did buy it to: extract automotive fluid samples for analysis and troubleshoot/activate automotive vacuum devices. To my delight a very detailed manual is included covering topics like which EGR ports have high or low vacuum, testing fuel pressure regulators and even how to use the device's gauge to diagnose a multitude of mechanical failures. Because an engine is a vacuum pump, this device can differentiate sticking valves to blown head gaskets by watching the gauge behavior. There is no switch on this model to provide pressure.

I purchased one of these units to help with brake fluid replacement on my '96 Nissan Pathfinder. I was expecting to be able to attach the unit to each brake fluid bleed valve in turn, pump up a vacuum, open the bleed valve and rapidly extract the old brake fluid.

I found it to be close to useless for this purpose because the vacuum it creates is not particularly strong. The fittings supplied with the unit do not make an effective seal to the valve, so air leaks in. In addition the other various fittings do not fit together securely, and the pump kept popping off the tank.

I resorted to having my 11-year-old daughter pump the brake pedal as needed. The pump was of some usefulness to help stop air from leaking back into the system, but it was far from the quick, easy one-man job I was hoping for.

If you're looking to do this kind of job I would not recommend this item. There has to be a better way!

i have two motorcycles (Fjr 1300 & drag star 1100). this little thing bled the clutch and the brake flowed, in under 1 hour for both motorcycles.
Amazing product; it is a must for any motor head.

Thank you AMAZON.

Basically, it can't be used without any modification.
Tube and the bottle outlet are not very tight and air is leaking.
This is very cheap item.
