This is how you bled the brakes if you don't have ABS. If you have ABS then you will need a bidirectional scanner to bled the brakes. If more than one brake pipe is being bled, bleed in the following sequence: Right rear Left front Left rear Right front Check brake pedal feel for sponginess. If brake pedal exhibits this feel, repeat bleeding procedure until condition disappears. When bleeding procedure is completed on each wheel, check the reservoir fluid level. Fill as necessary.

No you do not bleed the brakes with the engine running. Do you have Antilock Brakes on the car?
