Can I mix old and new brake fluid?

Brake fluid is prone to absorbing water, which is one of the reasons you replace it. You CANNOT reuse fluid, and you CANNOT mix old with new.

Can you pump out brake fluid?

Every hydraulic brake system should be bled and refilled with fresh fluid to remove moisture. A simple method to accomplish this without bleeding is to suck most of the fluid out of the master cylinder with a pump or kitchen meat basting utensil. Make sure you don’t expose the circuit to air when taking the fluid out.

Can you add new brake fluid to old?

Unless the existing brake fluid within the system is contaminated (dirt, water etc.) you can probably safely add fluid to the old. Just ensure that the new fluid that you add is the same as what is in the system.

How do you get air out of your brakes without bleeding?

Move to the RR wheel and gently crack the bleeder until the fluid starts to come out. Open it about a maximum of half turn. Give it a couple of seconds (around 4 to 5 seconds) and then close it. Pump the brakes gently and repeat it.

Do you bleed brakes with engine on or off?

Summary: Bleed brakes (at the calipers) with the engine off. The only pump that runs would be for the ABS system. If you are trying to bleed that system (ABS) you would need to make the pump run, if you are just bleeding the base brakes you would not need the pump to run.
