Default Bleeding brakes but nothing coming out of one corner..

Car is a 2006 Cobalt SS/SC.

When I was bleeding the brakes, the passenger rear wouldn't pull any brake fluid through when I loosened the bleed valve. I was using a Motive Brake Bleeder @ 15psi. Worked perfectly for the 3 other corners.

What could cause a caliper to not bleed?

Did you start with the caliper furthest from the master cylinder, usually the passenger rear?

Its actually different with the cobalts since they have a cross system. I went LR, RF, RR, LF. All the others worked. RR nothing came out. No visible leaks or fluid on the ground anywhere.

Uhm, my totally unprofessional feedback would be, close all the other bleeders, make sure the system is full with fluid and capped...

Then have someone slowly press the brake with that bleeder open until that caliper produced fluid (closing it prior to each time they release the pedal of course).

Once it produces fluid, resume using the bleeder.

Pull the bleeder all the way out and see if fluid comes out.
