    So i just install longer brake lines and i can not get my brakes to bleed on my 2011 tacoma. I got some air to come out but i already ran about 2 quarts of brake fluid through and it will not let the air out.

    Is your basic bleeding technique right?

    My Haynes guide says if you get air in the master cylinder, it means a trip to the dealer for them to fix using special equipment.

    I tried the link above with no luck and basic bleeding techniques. I dont see how air got into the mastercylinder or abs module. Will gravity bleeding work?
