hey all,

I replaced break master cylinder for my 2001 Taurus (w/ABS). I connected both lines to the master cylinder (pre-bled) loosely and had my wife to press break paddle to the floor, break fluid came out from both lines, as well as master cylinder connection holes. But before I could tied up the lines, she released break paddle, so that more air drew back in the system. do I have to bleed all four calipers/wheel cylinders? (I did not touch any one)? or can I just loosen both fitting nuts on master cylinder and depress break paddle, and then tie-up?

do I have to remove wheels to gain access to bleed screws (don't think I can raise the car high enough at home).

1st time for this type of job. thanks for any assistance

First, it's "brake" "pedal."

And no, releasing the pedal would not have drawn air down into the brake lines. It would have pulled some bubbles into the master cylinder though, so you should remove and bench bleed it again before reconnecting.
