Unfortinatly your pads and rotors may have had nothing to do with this. It sounds like either really bad rear wheel cylinders or a bad master cylinder. I would tell you the master cylinder is the problem though.

1995 K3500 rear brake reservoir keeps losing fluid. No sign of a leak yet. Is the rear reservoir for the front brakes or rear brakes? Have front calipers and rear drums. Thanks

Hi, you are right the rear is for the rear,the best thing is to pull both rear wheels off and remove drums that way you are looking at the wheel cylinder and then you will know if that is your problem,some times when they leak you cant see it with out pulling drums off. If no problem there check around master cylinder for leaks and around brake booster inside truck. Then if you still have no sign of fluid take the two nuts off master cylinder and see if leak is in side booster is wet.
If need more info please re post.
Thanks dodge tec

1995 buick lesabre. brakes are gone! fluid leaking from left rear brake.

If they are drum brakes then it is most likely the wheel cylinder. these are not expensive but you will need to replace the rear brake shoes and clean all the parts with brake clean. I recomend replacing the other cylinder while your at it.

I had a rusted brake line to the left rear wheel and i replaced the section of line and bled the rear brakes. petal goes to the floor. front brakes lock up and rears are inop. found rear wheel cylinders...

First do you have ABS next did you bench bleed the new master cylinder if not you can;t bleed the rest of the system You have to keep in mind that you have opened the entire system up and there is going to be a lot of air traped in it Getting back to the master cylinder it needs to be bleed pirior to installing it you need a little kit put the fittings into the holes where the lines go put the little hoses in to the resivoior put the cylinder in a vice and push on the pistion from the back until no more comes out of corse you need to fill it first then install it and rebleed the lines starting at the ferthise cylinder away from the master and work to the closest and its going to talk at least 10 to 15 pumps for the rears less for the front becase there closer and there is less line to bleed Make sure you have no leaks first if you see anything at all stop and fix the leak Hopefuly don;t have abs thats a whole differant thing but the brake still work fine with out it get them working and worry about that later good luck

ABS Light is on. rear drum brakes have no pressure to them....wheel cylinders are not seized., but will not activate when pressure is applied to the brake pedal, even with drums and shoes off

If you recently replaced the wheel cylinders or if you ran it out of brake fluid, you need to adjust the brakes out and then fill and bleed out the air on the wheel cylinders

95 Lumina rear brakes/low pedal.

IT IS POSSIBLE THE WHEEL CYLINDERS are wrong and need too much fluid to push brakes out. or rear shoes are not adjusted correct. this could be from drums too big(unlikely since new) shoes are not fitting to drum correct.You can take shoes off and set them in drum the whole shoe should contact drum sometimes just the ends contact. If this is case sand off ends of lining to make it fit .
If wheel cylinders are bad they would leak. might try a different brand of cylinders.

Low brake pedal

You may have a bad brake Booster and it could have brake fluid in it.
Also you may want to try a complete brake fluid flush.
