I have a 2001 sportage that i had to replace both front calipers and while i was bleeding the brakes i notice the fluid was bubbling in the reservoir. Is this normal? also my brake pedal does feel right either. Help PLEASE

If you have anti lock brakes You will need a scanner to properly bleed.

I think you have air in the system try to bleed all 4 wheels do back first then the front. You need to put the vehicle on four jack stands bleed each wheel three times. You can also use a vacuum bleeder.

My back brakes are drum. is there an auto parts store that rents vacuum bleeders?

I also see brake fluid bubbling in the reservoir while someone is pumping the brakes.

The bleeder for the drum brakes is on the wheel cylinder. Call and ask parts stores for a loaner. You can purchase a vacuum kit if you have a vacuum pump.Lisle makes them.

Is the problem solved...or was there a problem, finally?
I had to change metal tubing to the rear brakes and bled from the end of the line connector, with success. WHeel cylinder bleeders happen to become too hard to unlock .
My 2000 sportage, alas, is now defunct....those authentic KIA production models were so prone to corrosion that it was falling in pieces....body and frame...
