OK for the home garage Purchased this to bleed the brakes on my F-150. Had to go back and buy the auto refill kit to make the job easier to do. The refill kit should be included in the original kit.Couple of hints, make sure that you have gotten a good seal on the small fill bottle, first time had a bad fit and was losing vacuum. Heard the leak, opened the top, resealed, much better vacuum.Next time will follow Popular Mechanics advice and use kit to suck out as much fluid from the brake reservoir before starting. Would have made the job go faster.Also, when opening the brake bleed valve, only crack open till fluid starts to flow; any more than that you are just sucking air from around the threads on the bleeder valve.For something made in China, not all that bad, but wish the country of manufacture had been included on the web page description, probably would have bought something else had I known.

Good, but problems. I had the same problem as others with a poor seal at the jar. A thin o-ring on the lid would fix that. I resorted to gobbing silicone dialectric grease on the seal each jar full. The hose that came with it was kinked, which got in the way. Strange that an otherwise good item could be far better with a couple of simple changes. Otherwise a good device.
