A few things...
If I were you... this is what I would do.

First, get a set of Speed Bleeders at you local parts store, Jegs, Summit, or
Speed Bleeder Bleeding Brakes Bleeding Motorcycle Brakes Automotive Bleeder Screw Brake Bleeder

Use Valvoline SuperSyn fluid. very good but cheap.

Speed bleeders makes the job so freakin easy, a monkey can do it.

Like he said, you start at the farthest wheel.. usually the right rear.

Jack up the car, pull the wheel off.
Unscrew the old bleeder screw and replace with the speed bleeder.

Now you need a hose and catch can.. sometimes an old water bottle. Put the hose on teh speed bleeder, Loosen the Speed bleeder 1/2 turn. Go pump the brakes 5 times.

Check the MC, refill.

Keep pumping until the fluid coming out is clear, or what ever color brake fluid you are using.

DO NOT LET THE MASTER CYLINDER GO EMPTY. CHECK AFTER EVERY 5 PUMPS OF THE PEDAL.

Move on to the next wheel etc.

The speed bleeder has a relief valve (steel ball and spring) inside. So fluid goes out, but no air goes back in.

its the best 15 bucks you can ever spend on your car.

Guarantee you brakes will feel like a rock when your done.

I bleed my brakes at the track after every few track sessions.
