I changed a weel cylinder on the drivers side and changed the breaks and the drums got fluide out of the new cylinder but the breaks will not come up when i start up the car
have you bled the brakes after you changed that wheel cylinder? if not, then that's your problem. you need 2 people to bleed the brakes, and start at rear drivers side. then rear passenger side and then drivers front wheel. make sure you have a large container of brake fluid before you start.you will find the bleeder valves on the rear wheel on the inside of rear wheel at the top of wheel, jack it up, use jackstands for safety, crawl under the car and look at the top of wheel for a small bleeder valve. have someone inside the car pump up the brake pedal until they feel the pedal come up with pressure applied.hold pressure on pedal,open bleeder valve on wheel.you will see a small ammount of fluid come out, tighten the valve back and repeat the process again until you see a steadt stream come out. when you see that move to other rear wheel and repeat that process again. after you get that one bled, move to passenger front wheel and repeat that again,remember to tell your helper to keep pressure on brakes until youtighten the bleeders,if not you're wasting time. you helper will have to pump the brakes up on each time and hold pressure on pedal until you have each bleeder tight or else it will **** air into the brake and thats the reason you'll have to bleed them,because when you replaced that wheel cylinder,you let air into the whole braking system. if this doe'nt help,please repost you question on process of bleeding brakes and fixya.com will be happy to assist.
