SO I JUST GOT DONE PUTTING ON NEW CALIPERS PADS AND ROTORS. IVE BLED THE FRONT 2 CALIPERS 2 TIMES ALREADY AND THERE IS STILL NO PEDAL PRESSURE. ON THE PASSENGER SIDE I CAN HEAR AIR HISSING WHEN THE PEDAL IS BEING DEPRESSED, I DONT KNOW IF THAT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. HOW MUCH FLUID IS NEEDED TO BLEED THE WHOLE FRONT I STILL HAVE A FEELING THERES AIR IN THERE. ANY THOUGHTS??

Turn off your caps!

Then recheck any all the fittings make sure there's no leaks. Then rebleed the calipers. Have you bled brakes before this? After replacing lines or calipers I usually gravity bleed, before I manually bleed the lines. Gravity bleeding is done by pumping the system a bit with the brake pedal, then opening the bleeder screw. Then open the master cylinder and watch to make sure the fluid level doesn't get too low. This will help get the air out. Then it should bleed the old fashion way. Make sure you put a clear hose on the bleeder screw to see if you are getting anything out.

Hey, Retard. Turn off caps lock. Orange asked nicely the first time. No one likes being yelled at.

I was going to suggest checking that the calipers were on the correct side. It's a common mistake and causes the bleeders to be below where the soft line is bolted to the caliper. This will prevent you from getting all of the air out of the system. Flip them around, re-bleed the system, and you should be good to go.
