Bleeding Brakes Jetta 88


I have a Jetta 88 and i just got some new brake cylinders for the rear drum brakes. I'm having a lotof trouble bleeding the system properly. I dont know how the air is coming in.

When the engine is off, i bleed each wheel until no air is seen coming out. I get the pedal to feel very firm, but the second i start the engine, the pedal almost goes to the floor. The level of brake fluid is stable, which leads me to believe that there is no leak in the system.

Check for a vacuum leak or a bad booster.

Do you hear any hissing or vacuum leaks?
