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.
1) My handle broke after only 4 uses - there is a metal pin that holds the handle on is is prone to becoming disloged
2) If for some reason brake fluid gets into the gun it will swell the seals and make it inoperable. I had read this and figured I would drain the plastic cup once it got to a half full amount. This did not work - through the bleeding process you end up getting brake fluid into the suction nozzel and eventually it will find its way into the gun.
3)It is nearly impossible to get a proper seal from the bleed nipple to the gun. The gun plastic cup leaks at the top no matter how tight you make it, some of the fittings have slow leaks and the worst part - most bleeder valves leak air in from the threads so no matter how little you unscrew the valve you get a slew of airbubbles that in most cases will not allow the vaccum to pull the fluid. The directions suggest surrounding the base of the valve with grease or wrapping it with white teflon tape. Even after wrapping with white teflon tape it will still leak and does not provide a decent seal. Preassure bleeding here is the only real sollution.
4) The clear tubing is not flexible enough making it leak a bit on the brake nipples
5) The awkeward configuration of the gun attached to the plastic cup makes it very hard to keep the cup upright and from tipping when you need to unscrew the bleeder valve and also hold a wrench.Read more ›

Great bleeder. My only gripe is that I wish it came with a larger reservoir but Mityvac sales one individually so I bought that one to use with the bleeder instead of the small... Read morePublished 1 day ago by MotoMayI

Gets the job done. Sometimes takes quite awhile to get it to seal well around the bleeder valve.Published 6 days ago by Brian
Very nice tool, a time saver but the reservoir is small, I recommend to buy the larger cup.Published 6 days ago by JOFERM
