Brake Bleeder Testimonials
To you and all of the crew I have to brag about both my old unit and my new MaxPro. I have used it so long and its kept loaded and ready to bleed that the coating is buckling some but I could care less. I do have to replace my tubing about twice a year and get it from a True Value store but that is a service I do willingly. I got to use it more frequently when I was working for Firestone but I just linked your site to a forum (_www.Pro-Touring.com/forums_(http://www.pro-touring.com/forums)) I visit frequently and as luck would have it today I had a brake line job that I used it on. I love the strip dip and keep bottles in my tool-box (leftovers from Firestone service) too. But I replaced the rusted and leaking line in less than an hour after receiving parts and had the lines AND the master cylinder re-bled in less than 20 minutes and even cross bleed the other rear wheel. The injector let me bleed to the rabs valve on a Ford E-van and then on up to the master and I only bled the master at the lines once and got very little air, if any at all…. The MaxPro got the job done and the tech who helped me asked how I got it done so quick and didn’t trash the master cylinder. He,he “Ancient Chinese Secret” ROFLMAO.
This thing lets me make sooooooooo much money it has been well worth the $305 to replace my old MaxiJectPro as it was discontinued (it still works ok for now but I needed a new one anyway.)
I was blowing my boss away at Firestone how quick I could bleed even ABS equipped cars. While they never had a way to bleed ABS vehicles before I was working there except taking the vehicles to OEM dealers to cycle the systems, me I bleed the ABS valving and get as much air out before I install them and have rarely had any issues with air. Even if my new can tool wouldn’t cycle things my Phoenix Injector has never failed me!
Thanks again for such a great product and when I first bought it the unit sucked a lot of air, and you took care of me by swapping it out at no cost to me AND sent me bumper stickers to use on race cars.

I recently talked to you on the phone about my 15 plus year old Phoenix brake bleeder gun kit. I bought my system when your company was in Tucson Arizona. I immediately saw the value in the tool upon looking at it on the tool truck. I purchased the bleeder system when I was working for the local Ford dealership, The tool instantly saved me time doing Ford truck clutch replacements. I was able to make or beat flat rate times with this tool because of the ability to reverse bleed the systems. Since my time at the dealers, I moved into the Motorcycle repair industry. The bleeder tool has performed well beyond my expectations, Some motorcycle systems are very hard to bleed due to caliper angles. The Phoenix System makes this task incredibly easy. Reverse bleeding all of my customers concerns away. This tool has made more motorcycles safe to drive in my town. The fact this tool lasted 15 years plus also is a statement to quality. If this one ever fails I would purchase a new model with out hesitation. Thanks for producing a quality product.William Jeffery Jr. - Fleet Services Motorcycle Mechanic, City Of Tucson

Just a note to thank you for the prompt attention on my Phoenix Pro Bleeder. I’ve has this machine for fifteen plus years and grown quite dependent on it. I work by myself so this is the Best Brake Bleeding Tool I’ve ever had. I have yet to find a brake/clutch system that it hasn’t worked well on.

I’ve used a Phoenix Brake Bleeder for 2 years. My foster son didn’t know what it was and I had it in my waste can, draining the fluid out. He emptied the can in the dump. It’s like losing my right arm!! I need one right now. Thanks for your help.
As a mechanic for the last 30 years, and a TV car talk host for the last 3, I only wish there were more guys out there like you (and you can quote me.) I’m truly amazed that someone hasn’t come up with such a great brake bleeding product before, because it REALLY saves time and most of all AGGRAVATION. I’d love to try out your Universal Cap Adapter if you’re interested in sending me one, it looks like another great tool I can tell people about (being a staunch supporter of the “little guys” out there, to Hell with the multi-national corporations.)
Anytime you come up with other products, feel free to send them on to me. I air twice a week, and I hate repeating myself. And if you have anything exciting going on in your web site, just send me a fax and I’ll check it out.

I think I have a V-10 injector from several years ago and I need to know what size of steel ball is supposed to be in the suction end of the pump. The plunger assembly fell apart when I had the injector apart to check the o-ring. Unfortunately it was over an oil drain pan and I have no way to recover the ball. I still have the spring, but want to put the ball back or it will not work at all anymore. I love this product it has saved me 1000s of hours of labor, but I need help!!!!!

We were asked to trial test the MaxPro for aviation applications. We found that MaxPro to be an excellent tool for bleeding small independent brake systems used in general aviation aircraft. The quick disconnect features of the MaxPro minimized the possibility of contamination and reduced set up time. Air was removed from these systems quickly and with a reduction in fluid leakage. We highly recommend this tool for general aviation applications.

The Phoenix bleeding system is the BEST and QUICKEST way to bleed clutch hydraulic systems. No pumping, no mess, just fill from the slave cylinder and push all the air up and out the master cylinder, the FIRST time. I also use it for my motorcycle and snowmobile brake systems. What a time saver. I highly recommend this system or any of their products.

I couldn’t be happier with the new tool. Instead of replacing the clutch in my wife’s VW New Beetle, I first tried using the V-12 Injector to see if it was just trapped air. It was. The clutch works perfectly again. We live on a steep hill and my wife parks her car on the hill. The reservoir had gone down because of worn brake pads and I am sure that when parked on the hill, the clutch hose, that is midway up on the reservoir, was sucking in air. Thank you for your speedy response to my question and I am very happy with this new product. Note: Instead of using the silicon sealant as was suggested on loose threads, I used PTFE tape designed for hydraulic applications.
I just bought a MaxPro to bleed brakes on 2004 dodge ram 1500,and it worked great brakes feel awesome and nice & firm pedal but ABS and brake light are on I have read manual over and over and it says safe for abs brakes? I done RFI I used it the other way how do I get lights off drove it brakes are working great.
I was lucky enough to hit a home run with your reverse bleeding system!! Not having the Phoenix system Kit to finally fix my bleeding nightmares, a member took pity on me and brought his Phoenix brake bleeding system to ME and solved my bleeding dilemma. I know I can forget about the ABS light coming on after trying everything to fix this nightmare. Reverse bleeding saves all; and I now help dozens fix their ABS light, spongy petal, brake bleeding nightmares by recommending your reverse brake bleeding system !! Thanks, great product!

I purchased your Phoenix Pro System and had to comment on how well it is. I have purchased many other systems in the past, but this one is the cadilac of all. I just did my 2003 GMC, which are not usually easy, and had no problems. Thanks. Now I need to get the light and bracket soon. Thanks again.
Marcel Gregoire - Another very happy customer
Finally a tool that works as well as it looks. No more bugging your spouse or friends to pump the brakes for you. This tool has paid for itself many times over. Thanks Phoenix Systems for producing such a fine product. BTW, did I mention I love the tool!
After extensive testing, Bendix feels that the visual dip strip from Phoenix Systems is the best indicator system on the market. Phoenix Systems … is well respected in the industry. Phoenix Systems know their brake fluid.
In the 1990s, researchers were looking for a better, more reliable way of testing brake fluid than what had been available. The end result was the development of FASCAR (Fluid Analysis by Stimulation of Copper Alpha Reactions) Technology.
Kerry Pipes - Fixed Ops Magazine
Oh, yeah! Those BrakeStrips are great. We do 5 to 8 flushes a week now. I had to hire another guy and I’m still making money.
Speedy Oil Change & Tuneup - Spartanburg, SC
The BrakeStrips take all the guesswork out of testing brake fluid.
Yes, we test everything that comes in and explain to our customers about copper content in the systems. Customers say that it is a much better explanation that it is bad because it looks dirty.
Bill’s Quality Autocare - Simi Valley, CA
BrakeStrip is great. At first customer’s response was skeptical, but this test is so visual it’s very easy for the customers to accept.
Advanced Auto Pro - Greeley, CO
My customers really like the test strips, and that’s saying a whole lot, because most of my customers are older and they don’t trust anybody. But they like the strips because it’s something they can see.
Dave Trottner’s Auto Repair - Bellingham, WA
We read test strips on every check, every time. It has enhanced our brake sales and moved us into the top trust market by being able to show the customer the problems and also allow the customer to dip the fluid themselves. Thanks.
Kenny Counce - Concord, CA Store # 029734
We use brake test strips on every ticket and average between 75 – 100 brake flushes per month. We call it show and tell.
Jeff Martin - Atlanta, GA
The BrakeStrips are a quick and easy way to identify a maintenance need. The visual you can present to the customer is very convincing and straight forward.
Jim Gambill - Tires Plus Store 630063
With brake fluid test strips, we can sell flushes and provide the customer with a car that will run newer, longer.
Brian Sturgill - Orlando, FL
It’s easy to show customers condition of their brake fluid, not just by color, but by actual condition of fluid.
James Foutz - Columbis City, IN Store # 7008
The automotive repair industry has a reputation of being dishonest. With the strip and the card, I can prove it to them that their brake fluid is bad and the customer feels confident that this service is needed. Using BrakeStrip will change the automotive service industry from a stigma of dishonesty to trusting your mechanic.
John Price, Precision Automotive Inc. - Billings, MT
The industry has replaced much of the myth surrounding brake fluid with fact and has adopted an industry accepted testing technology (FASCAR). Technicians at shops following these procedures will be able to confidently educate their customers on the benefits of a brake fluid flush.
Bill Williams - Brake and Front End
I sold over 400 brake fluid flushes in two months using BrakeStrip as my sales tool.
Emmet Mays - Lexington, KY
I bought two tubes, then I bought four tubes, then ten. Man, I can’t believe how great they are selling brake flushes!
BrakeStrips work spectacular! We test every car that comes in and it’s increased our sales. People really like it because it’s a test that we can show them.
Tony Campagnari - Castle Rock, CO
BrakeStrip is great. I used to change brake fluid based on moisture, but I’m finding that with the BrakeStrip test brake fluid fails that passes a moisture test. So, I don’t think moisture is the real issue.
Gary’s Full Service Auto Repair - Aurora, CO
We do a lot of maintenance work so it’s nice to be able to go to my customers with a test that is reputable and repeatable.
Frank Valley Auto Works - Canoga Park, CA
We use the BrakeStrip at my Complete Auto Care here in Fargo, ND on every car we service. It is a great tool for talking to the customers and helps a lot in selling brake flushes.
