I didn't bleed my brakes on my Caddy yesterday and when I went out to go to work, I had no brakes. So I had to call into work and hope they let me use a vacation day. I bleed the rear brakes, which were easy since both calipers were new. The front on the other hand, I got the passenger loose, but couldn't bleed it. The driver side was worse and snapped the bleed screw on it, but it doesn't leak. So for now I have brakes, but feels like just the rears are doing the work.

Since I was in the bleeding mood, I put a new fuel filter in my Bonneville. Then took all the glow plugs out and bleed the fuel lines. The motor sounded like it was going to start, but didn't. Also had a little bit of smoke going out of the tail pipes. The batteries were low so maybe that'* why it didn't start. I'm kinda disappointed in the new fuel sending unit since the fuel gauge is reading anything. The tank has 5 gallons in it, so it should be close to 1/4 of a tank, but nothing. I'll have to run a new wire back to the fuel sending unit to the gauge.
