time to bleed ... you an use the ol pump method or use a vacuum pump and pull fluid throught the bottom bleeder.  Habor Height has a Vacuum kit very cheap.

it shouldn't matter. Keep pumping it up. The plungers could be stuck. Grab a pair of pliers and pull them out and in a few times

why? As long as he didn't lose any fluid he shouldn't have to bleed since he just pushed fluid back into.the reservoir when he pushed the pads apart

Okay yeah I didn't think I would need to bleed them like maybe I let air into the system but yeah I'll just keep pumping it is just thought it was weird
