Consider a motive products pressure bleeder.

Probably need the 2 or 3 tab ford adapter.

Get 2 or 3 quarts of Dot 4 and start with the longest run until it runs clear. I recommend Valvoline or Ford fluid.


^What he said.
I've never sprung for one of these, but I may. Makes brake bleeding or flushing almost enjoyable. Especially if you've done it the old fashioned way.

The way I change my brake fluid on is to jack up the front end and just gravity bleed starting with the furthest brake from the MC which is the right rear ending at the left front. I suck the old fluid out of the MC first with a turkey baster first and fill with clean fluid, insert a clear plastic tube on the bleeder and let the old fluid drain into a glass jar when clean fluid comes out you close bleeder and go to the next one. Clean fluid must be added to the MC so no air gets in brake lines. I do this every 30k miles along with the transmission fluid change.

There's too much riding on brakes. If you've never done it before have someone who has show you in person.
