Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina
So, I`ve isolated my low pedal issue to the rear drum brakes. I pinched off the 2 rear flex lines and immediately the pedal was at the correct height. I released the driverside rear hose first and there was a slight drop in the pedal, then the passengerside...back to very low pedal. Bled the rear brakes again. No change. The rear drums are new as are the shoes. Could the wheel cylinder (s) be bad???
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.
