If you have rear ABS only, then you could bleed it without a special tool. If it's 4 wheel ABS, then you either need a special solenoid modulating tool, or a scanner which could open, and close the solenoids in the block while it's being bled.

I have a 94 with ABS, have always just bled them like any other car. Either I'm doing something wrong, or it doesn't matter.

"As seen on TV"... the recommendation for older abs systems is to get on some gravel and do some hard stops causing the abs to activate. this gets the new fluid into the abs; then you bleed the brakes again.

93/94 have 4 wheel abs. Well most 93's anyway. Easy way is to turn the X to run & the ABS light should light up. Or it will have a rear abs indicator.
