I like to stick to book and change out brake fluid every 2-3 years on my cars.

The Motive looks like a pain to get sealed then you've got to pump the heck out of it. Speed Bleeder are the way to go?

I'm willing to eat the cost of either product.

Also, I've got one other Toyota SUV that requires an "intelligent tester" to complete the bleed. It will pump out the fluid on its own with this tester connected. Should I even mess with that or take it in the shop to have that car done? If I don't have this tool, I don't think I would be able to do any brake work on the car like pads since I wont be able to bleed properly.

I'll have to test out the techstream again. The SUV is a 2007. Tundra is 2011. I had a hard time getting to work at all and I gave up on it.

If I recall correctly, Techstream is 2008 and after.

Bleed the brakes like normal then do this extra part is what it calls for.

Toyota 4Runner Forum - View Single Post - How to bleed Master Cylinder?


(a) Connect the intelligent tester to the DLC3.
(b) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
(c) Select "ACTIVE TEST" mode on the intelligent tester.
(d) Connect the vinyl tube to the rear brake caliper.
(e) Loosen the bleeder plug.
(f) Select "SRMF & SRMR" to drive the solenoids and bleed air from the rear brake caliper.

NOTICE: Do not depress the brake pedal.

HINT:

Brake fluid is sent through the pump.
To protect the solenoids, the intelligent tester turns OFF automatically 2 seconds after every solenoid has been turned ON.

(g) Repeat step (f) until all the air in the brake fluid is bled out.
(h) When the air is completely bled out of the brake fluid through the bleeder plug, tighten the bleeder plug.
Torque: 11 Nm (112 kgf/cm, 8 ft. lbs.)
(i) Repeat the above procedures to bleed the other brake line.
(j) Turn the ignition switch off.
(k) Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
(l) Clear DTC.

CHECK FLUID LEVEL IN RESERVOIR

Thsi is my modified HF bleeder.
I have a Mityvac hand bleeder. Hand gets sore from all of the pumping so I want something easier. Gets tiring after 2-3 cars.

I have the All Data DIY for the Tundra, it doesn't require additional scan tool for brake bleeding. Its a straight forward bleed.

The question was for a different Toyota and I thought I'd lump the question together since people here seem to have multiple Toyotas in the household and might know.
