Are the sliders for the caliper free? It sounds like you replaced everything I would have looked at except making sure the caliper movement is ok.

SOURCE: changing 4 calipers and there is no oil com out when try to bleed

The master cylinder supplies the pressure to the brake fluid that travels between the maste brake cylinder resevoir and the brake caliper pistons (through the brake lines. If the master cylinder fails there will be insufficient compression of the brake fluid to make the calipers operate as designed. Leaks in the brake lines and/or cylinders is a possibility, and unrelated to functionality of the master cylinder. Also, pistons located in the brake calipers can form a corrosion ring on their inside walls if there is breakdown in the brake fluid or moisture that gets into the lines. Operating the vehicle when there is insufficient brake fluid in the master cylinder resevoir can also lead to air getting into the brake lines, causing bad working brakes. Air compresses more than brake fluid, and the master cylinder isn't designed to compress air in the brake lines. Sounds like a bad case of "lack of maintenance", as opposed to bad advice from the mechanics. That said, there's no excuse for bad installation. But, it's tough to improperly install a brake line since they are nothing more than hollow metal tubes. There should be no rubber connectors installed in the brake lines. When bleeding the brake lines one must remove all of the trapped air before you will see any fluid appear. If the valves in the master cylinder are not properly operating the master cylinder will not allow the brake fluid to get into the brake lines.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a 1986 Nissan Pickup D21 that bogs down

your carberator is gummed up. Go to the auto parts store and get a can of seafoam fuel additive. Read the label so you get enough but as I recall you put in one ounce per gallon of gas. Run that through your pickup for a few miles and it will purr again.

have the brake master cylinder replaced first
then work on the pins that allow the calliper body to self center

Overheating brakes


I think the problem is the brake pad or caliper, brake pad are too thick or the caliper are not good casted.
First try to confirm if you get a right brake caliper ,then confirm the brake disc ,brake pad, if they all ok, tear down the bracket of caliper, put into brake pad, then put into brake rotor.

!996 Chevy Astro AWD pulls to the left when braking , I have replaced Both front calipers, rotors, and pads bled the brake lines and still it will pull to the left MOST OF THE TIME! when i least expect...


Check front end steering linkages for any play, as well as rear brakes for sticking or grabbing as well. Not unusual for a rear brake grabbing, to cause front end to want to wander.

1994 ford ex. everything on my brake system is new,except the lines,the right front caliper will not retract when i release the brakes and will slowly start locking up. i have to open the bleeder valve...


The rubber brake hose may be cracked on the inside causing the pressure to remain on the caliper piston. Replace the hose and bleed the brakes to restore proper pressure to the caliper.

The front passager side brake got locked frequently. Wheel is hot


If you open the brake fluid bleeder on that caliper you should have brake fluid dripping out. If not it could be the rubber flex hose has collapsed.If fluid drips out then the caliper is sticking and should be rebuilt or replaced.

Replace brake hoses,they have an inner core that has ruptured and the outside rubber core is keeping pressure on the caliper with you foot off the brake. This will fix it! A common problem for this vehicle.

Either the brakes or the caliper keeps sticking to the rotors.


If its not the caliper causing the problem try replacing the rubber hose coming off of the caliper. Sometimes the inside of the hose will get messed up and let fluid go to the caliper but not return to the master cyl.
