Loosen brake bleeder valves at each wheel.

Just loose enough for small brake fluid oooze.

IF no fluid comes out.. loosen fittings at master cylinder.. if no fluid oozes out.. "lightly" pump brake pedal until fluid oozes from master cylinder.. retighten fittings.. fluid should now be oozing from wheeel cylinders..

Drink cup of coffee.. then retighten wheel cylinder bleed valves.

Test drive vehicle in parking lot or driveway.

If pedal slams floor.. replace master cylinder.

Always use proper brake fluid for vehicle i.e. DOT 3, DOT 4 etc.

You can't generally as the adjustment is automatic, however the rear brake calipers have things on them you can click to take up slack in the cable. If you do this and find your brake is still not working properly, the cables have stretched and need replacing.Known as I own a '97 explorer.

When to replace brake fluid of Chevrolet optra 2005?

There is no specified time to replace the brake fluid of any vehicle, as long as you keep it topped up. Brake fluid does not 'wear out'. I have replaced the entire brake fluid on only a few occasions, and always only because I have been replacing seals or brake cylinders and it made sense to replace fluid then, before bleeding the system.

They need replacing when they wear out. They could wear out at 23,000 miles if you drive hard with lots of stops or ride the brake with your foot. It is not normal for them to need replacing that quickly but it all depends on how you drive.

Why would brake pressure be normal when the car is off but low when the car is on?

I would try bleeding the brake lines first to make sure there is no air in the lines. Could be the brake booster (if applicable) or even the master cylinder. If your car has a brake booster maybe check the vacuum line on it first.
