I Installed speed bleeders tonight so I could change my brake fluid. I got three of them to work but the one on the front left caliper I couldn't get any brake fluid to come out of it. I opened it several times 1/4 to 1/2 turn and nothing would come out. A little fluid was coming out of it when I took out the OEM bleeder and installed the speed bleeder. I suppose it's possible to get a bad one, or am I doing something wrong? Other than that, the speed bleeders are worth the money. Very easy to install. It takes about one min. to install each one. They make it a one man job for brake bleeding.

There's not much you can do wrong on them, just remove the old bleeders and install the new. You didn't use any teflon tape on them did you? That can sometimes block them. They are tapered so they don't need a sealant on them.
